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'.

    Hostel in a good location, close to central shopping area, supermarket etc. WiFi also good and room was spacious. Kitchen was a little squashed, and breakfast things ran out fast and were not replenished. The kitchen was also a bit messy.

    A great hostel in the heart of downtown l.a. The room was bigger than we thought it would be. The location was okay didn't feel 100% safe a night. The room was very clean with fresh towels (however a hand towel for the bathroom would be great).

    Good

    Staff and overall hostel were of a high standard for such a place but despite being central, the surrounding area is not the nicest by a long way and you are normally forced to walk past some very grim sites and areas to get to and from it. My overall impressions of San Francisco is one of disappointment as half the city has been forgotten about and has a huge drug/homeless problem. I will never be back.

    Really average. No communal space outside - all in a stuffy grimey basement. No vibe in hostel, mostly Chinese tourists staying there. Extremely overpriced for what it is. Toilets are disgusting as you can’t flush your toilet paper an the showers are limited. Not worth the money and does not have any hostel charm

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
