    One of the best hostels I’ve stayed in! Absolutely spotless amenities and rooms. They even give you a towel and some complimentary toiletries. Although the location is not the safest- the staff and security were incredible. I cannot fault the Music Hotel- I’ll be recommending this place to anyone visiting SF for a long time!

    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 great. Cool theme - the decor is super cool. Staff were nice and helpful. Room was clean and the location was good. Wish the lockers were slightly larger to hold a backpack. If you are booking its best to email them - info on the website is contradictory from one page to the next, probably made worse due to covid.

    Such a cool place to stay!! Super mellow, clean, and everybody was super kind. I loved that there was a kitchen in my dorm room! Definitely check this place out if you ever go to SF!

    Music City Hostel is well run, well maintained, and well situated for treks in any direction. Walk a couple of miles and you are almost anywhere in San Francisco a visitor has heard about. Polk Street neighborhood is very nice, but better to come back to after a day of touring. What to do from here? Play ball at Eddy and Jones, go for a late nite stroll on Nob Hill, walk through the Stockton tunnel to Chinatown, have an espresso in North Beach, and play alleyway soccer behind the hostel.

    Filled with homeless people. Probably should be a disclaimer before booking during these COVID times that the hotel is being used in this way.
