    Rooms were always well kept by housekeepers. The housekeepers were always out and about during the day cleaning. The security is pretty great. Key cards for every room, even bathrooms. The latch on my four person dorm didn't always close on its own when it shut, so you just have to keep an eye that the door actually closes behind you. The location was pretty great; Ubers/lyfts were all relatively inexpensive from this location. The lockers were a little small but I felt safe leaving my stuff.

    Had a lovely 2 night stay here, the staff were very friendly and helpful! Provided us with information on the local area and were very welcoming. The rooms and beds were very comfortable and clean as well as the bathroom. This was the perfect location for me and my friend, about a 30 minute walk to fishermans wharf and there are coffee shops and bars local to the hostel. Overall very impressed and would stay again.

    It's a great place, loads of beds, well priced, clean and secure (don't forget a padlock for the lockers) I would have given it 10/10 but I felt that it lacks enough showers/toilets for the number of beds it has. If you don't time it right you may be waiting a while (I certainly had to)

    Very Clean. Beds got made every day/ fresh towels everyday (maybe not needed every single day). Love the musical touches, like amps in the hallway and framed pics of musicians on the walls. For a musician, it's great to have free access to the studios downstairs. The thing that lets it down is lack of communal space/shared kitchen (there's a tiny little room with extremely uncomfy seats). There is a fridge, hob and microwave in the dorm room - not a great idea (smells/noisy cooking at night).

    This is more of a hotel with a few rooms converted into 4 bed dorms. It has not been renovated in a long time, and is quite musty. The reception is only open until 11, along with the common room. Unfortunately the keycards sometimes stop working - which is difficult at night time since they're needed for access to the bathrooms. There are similarly priced hostels in SF which are cleaner, more spacious, and have better amenities.

    Not worth it. Find an Air bnb. My key worked only intermittently, my roommate puked in the sink, and there was only one small space for congregating. Location was close to a sketchy part of town.
