Hostelworld says

Our users have told us USA Hostels San Francisco is 'very clean, super friendly and very welcoming' with a 'perfect price/quality compromise' and 'really helpful and down-to-earth' staff who 'really make this place'. One Hostelworld guest said the hostel is ideal whether you want to 'sit back and relax, party, meet new people or spend some time on your own'. The hostel also has 'something going on every night', like walking tours, free drinks and tickets to local matches.

    Fabulous

    The hostel is in a great location, and the staff are all very friendly and the free breakfast is very handy. The rooms are very small and squishy though and the lockers in the room are quite small. There aren’t heaps of bathrooms either so you may have to wait for the bathroom/shower in the morning or at night when everyone wants to be using the bathrooms.

    Fabulous

    Friendly and helpful staff. Good breakfasts. Cute rooms. Hallways had an off putting scent but the room I was in did not have a smell to it. I appreciate that the front desk asks you to show your room key when you enter the dorm area - this made it feel secure. If you plan to stay here, keep in mind that the lockers are on the small side. Fits a carry on bag and a day sized backpack. I recommend this hostel and would stay here again!

    Fabulous

    07 Jul 2018
    Was everything I needed it to be. Very hip/modern, only young people, definitely good value. That being said it is in the heart of downtown, which sounds good but walks back at night were a little sketchy. If the hills are not an issue for you, you can walk to a good amount of attractions (I walked 30 mins or so to fisherman wharf) otherwise be prepared to use public transit or ride share services.

    Very Good

    08 Jul 2018
    Just spent 3nights here with my sister. Room was spotless. Common areas were very nice. Security was good: every guest has to show their room key to get through the internal door HOWEVER on our last night we came back &both showed our cards &were let in only to be stopped by a staff member at the stairs who berated my sister for not showing her card (which she had). He was unpleasant &we found this to be a hugely negative experience. Generally we didn’t find the staff to be very helpful.

USA Hostels San Francisco says

Besides being located only a few blocks from the cable cards and Powell Street (which is kind of the heart of the city), what makes our location special is two main things - staff and facilities. Many of our staff have been with us for years and really do enjoy helping guests come to love San Francisco as much as they do. Our staff know all the great, off-the-beaten path places to go and are happy to share their local secrets.
And for guests choosing to 'hang out' at the hostel, there are a variety of places within the building where they can get comfortable. If they need alone time, all our dorms feature 'privacy pods', an exclusively-designed addition to each bed that features a light, shelf, outlet and screening from other guests. Or, they can hide away in our quiet library and catch up on reading. If they are craving a movie, we have a 50-seat theatre. If they're ready to mingle, we have a large lounge with pool and foosball tables.
We're suited for guests of all flavours and ages, groups of up to 50 people, long-haul resting stops, weekend getaways and students - we even have a student residence on the top two floors! Brigit, COO
