  • The place was really, really smelly. One tenant had her purse robbed and I believe that the staff didn't help her at all. The hostel was located near an area where you could bear witness to drug deals happening, crack fiends smoking crack and a lot of homeless people. I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone at all. Avoid this place like the plague.

  • VERY UNSAFE AREA.The room was dirty and had bugs. The management is rude and unhelpful, gave us dirty sheets. The area has homeless all around, our room was broken into and a french guys laptop stolen. very few lockers. This is the WORST HOSTEL in San Francisco to stay, PERIOD.

  • If you are looking for a fun and party-going atmosphere, then this is not the place for you. The only good thing I can say about it is that it is relatively close to a lot and has fast wifi. Besides that, young people and adventure seekers stay away!

  • This hostel is the worst hostel I've ever been to, and I've been to a lot! Two toilets per floor with roughly 60 people on each floor is NOT enough, especially when one of the two toilets is clogged with !"§$ for over two days! The bathrooms in general were really dirty! The rooms reminded me of small prison cells, 4m x 4m with 3 bunkbeds, 6 people, no lockers nothing else and still not enough room to even change clothes! summary: unfriendly small dirty dangerous neighbourhood gross

  • The location is bad. I felt extremely unsafe because I was attacked in front of the hostel. The area is really bad. The hostel has bad common areas, the rooftop is completely empty and the hostel doesn't try to change it. My bed was made after the first night and somebody else put his stuff on it, so I had to move. no apologies from the staff, just a dirty new blanket. The price is way to high for what you get. better pay a little more and stay somewhere else!

  • There are lots of homeless people around the hostel. Except that, I think it is a good hostel. But, the number of showers is poor.

  • Kitchen needs to be cleaner and up date. Some of the appliances did not work. Bathrooms and rooms need painting.
