    Excellent staff and facilities. The location is a little bit out of the way but the value and experience is worth it.

    I had room 208 top bunk number 2. It was super squeaky when I would climb up. The door to enter room 208 is squeaky loud too. A little bit of grease should do it. I wish there was a lounge or rooftop area to chill/quite time.

    The staff were all wonderful and went above and beyond during my visit. Rosalind was incredibly helpful and even stayed a little later in the night to make sure my check-in process was smooth. She greeted me with a warm smile and friendly demeanor. Brian and Jason were also both very professional and helpful during my stay and assisted me in printing an important document I required for work. The facilities were clean and beds comfortable. Looking forward to staying here again.

    The hostel itself is very pleasant, has all the necessary amenities and ks staffed with very helpful and nice people. The free provision of toiletries and some food (like fruit and coffee) was highly appreciated. All rooms were kept to a very high standard of cleanliness, with fresh towels and bathroom supplies offered on a daily basis. The only downside is that despite its practical location (with very good transport connections), the hostel is at the edge of the iffy Tenderloin area.

    Hostel is still undergoing construction of some facilities - namely bar, large common room and large studio. Its a shame I was there when it wasn't finished yet as you can see immidiatelly lot of love and passion been put here by owners. It has style, vert friendly staff, cleanliness is top notch. Location bit iffy as Tenderloin us nearby, but I had zero problems and its SF, what you gonna do. Really hope to come back once all its finished as common room is quite small for time being.
