  • Good for the price. Hostel like a hostel, good enough to sleep couple nights if you don't care about luxury and dont mind strangers sleeping next to you and dont expect too much. Staff was nice and helpful, location very nice.

  • Friendly staff. They have a room where you can store your luggage if you're early for check in, so you can explore SF without having to drag around your bags. Stayed in a 6 female dorm ensuite. No AC and the shower's water pressure was very low, at least in our dorm. Lockers in dorm room, bring pad lock! They offer free breakfast, pancakes, which you make for yourself. They have a stove, microwave, a fridge etc in the kitchen. Great location, walking distance to the BART train connected to SFO.

  • This hostel was smelling bad and old. The carpets weren't looking nice. The door in our bathroom was closing with a very loud noise, always waking everyone up, and didn't even have a lock. I told front desk about that, only to be woken up by a Chinese handyman who has simply walked in the next morning at 9-10 am, opened the door and turned all the lights on - I didn't even hear him knocking as I was sleeping - he said "next time answer the door", excuse me?! They never fixed it! Horrible kitchen

  • Good location, provided you avoid the one or two dodgy streets. Close to everything. Bunk beds needed a ladder...great having pub crawls, and lets you know about social events around. Staff were good, and quite helpful.

  • The single most conspicuous "pro" of this hostel - price. For that price, however, one should be ready for: bunk beds without ladders (climb on and climb off according to your capability and, perhaps, even fitness); noticeable lack of power outlets (charging a device might be an unexpected challenge); cash-only reception desk (ATM on site) supervised by somewhat disengaged staff. But again, price is one of the lowest (if not the lowest) in the downtown area.

  • Great location, very cheap, clean kitchens, and room. WIFI can go out at sporadic times, but not enough to deter me from staying here. Made lots of new friends here as well! Advice to management--Include soap and paper towels in the bathroom and kitchen. This keeps people much more sanitary. Also $10 for a replacement card is a ripoff. Other than that, I have really enjoyed my extended stay here.

  • Wifi was spotty, I had to go outside my room often to get a signal. I recommend fixing that

  • Every staff are so bad; not friendly, not helpful, not kind. I cant recommend for anyone. It was a just cheap one. They lied when we checked in. We booked for 5 people, bud they said we booked for 6. They are terrible.
