    Awesome hostel in an awesome location, so close to union square and very easy to get throughout all of sf from this location. Cool staff and fun nights in the common room. Very clean and tidy. But the bunks do squeak a fair bit. Loved my time here.

    Great hostel. It's really big though, people all get together in the evening in the bar area with a pub crawl in the evening - not the best bar though, but then again SF isn't the biggest party town either. Can't complain for the amenities, everything seemed good, big lockers, good showers.

    Was only here for one night but super friendly staff, clean and spacious rooms with sink, really good amenities and about a 1km walk from the BANT which was really handy. Would stay again!

    Couldn’t fault it! One side note would be that the area in which the hostel is located isn’t the most comfortable to be in during the night - no fault of the hostel but something to keep in mind. Beds comfy and showers exceptionally clean!

    One of the best hostels I've stayed at in the US. Tonnes of events mean you meet people easily. The volunteers and staff were lovely and made sure that my stay was fun even though I lost my card. You could even smoke outside without feeling like you were going to be robbed (big deal after the other hostels I tried)

    So my booking was messed up. Hostel world had it correct but the hostel didn't... They also put me in a mixed dorm when I paid for a female only which as annoying because I had already made my bed and got settled when I realized my roommate was a dude then had to switch.... The vibe seemed cool for solo travelers. Though the area around the hostel is not the safest and kind of the worst part of SF.

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'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
