    The hostel is great, the staff was really nice and the location is pretty good. You can walk to pier 39 in 30minutes. If you’re a woman traveling alone stay away from Larkin street though, it’s not a nice place there! I missed a community room but it wasn’t that big of a deal. Cleanliness is 11/10!

    It was okay for my one night stay. Would have been nice for the check in staff person to give more detail about the Covid situation as I found out later that there was no common space to work and eat; all that had to be done in the assigned room. It was just frustrating going back and forth through the hallway, up and down the stairs just to find out what they could have told me earlier. Also, there was no air conditioner in the room and the window only opened three inches which got too hot.

    I arrived after office hours and it took a few hours to get someone to open the door and give me the key to my room. Otherwise the stay was ok.

    No common areas. If you want to eat something you have to eat at your bed or room. Other problem is it was very loud at night. Sometimes,there were some homeless around the hostel. I felt it was not safe.

    Staff was super nice and helpful, but the hostel itself was a complete different story. Wasn’t comfortable, bedding is black and it smells bad. There’s noise 24/7. My friends and I were dreading the end of the day because we didn’t want to go back to the hostel. Just wouldn’t recommend it.

    I was allowed to book for the evening, and when I got to the location -- in sketchy downtown San Francisco -- I was denied entry, even though they had someone on staff who I spoke with in person via their "after hours" number who refused me entry because they didn't want to come to the site to open the door etc. -- and then hung up on me. I understand technical glitches happen, but even if you're off-site, there's no traffic at that time of night and you could have stopped by to let me in.
