    Being a musician, there is no better place. The recording rooms are fantastic-especially that they are free once you are staying at the hotel. The showers are clean. Best to this place and its founder.

    Good location just above the Tenderloin so felt safe at all times and I was travelling alone. Able to walk or bus to most places in the city relatively easily. I stayed in private suite in the hostel with shared bathroom and was happy with how clean and quiet it was as I was up on the 2nd floor. Although breakfast was not included, free coffee and use of microwave etc made it easy to grab something to have for breaky the next day. Would stay at Music City again.

    Awesome staff, great if you’re a musician or music nerd! They have lots of events going on all the time, but rooms are insulated so you can get some sleep.

    Despite the name, I had a very quiet, early night's sleep here! Very little noise from elsewhere in the hostel, and the bunks were comfortable and unusually large. Everything was very clean, and I appreciated the staff's commitment to keeping people's rooms and bags secure.

    Liked my stay here. Every room has a member of staff who lives in there to make sure everyone is okay which is quite comforting (they dont care about what time you're coming and going). Unfortunatly they close the common room at 11 so you have no where to go apart from your own room. For any single female I cannot stress enough about how wary you have to be in the area - avoid Larkin street if possible- overall had a decent stay

    Pros: Location, live music, security, friendly staff, luggage storage in private locked room Cons: Lockers too narrow couldn't fit a carry on roller, dirty carpet needs cleaning, shared bathrooms need more frequent cleanings, no lift narrow stairs

    Overall, it is a good hostel, pleasant staff and the location is ok. The atmosphere needs a bit of work, the common area opens after 9am and closes by 11pm.
