  • Everything was fine at the hostel, except these damn emails are irritating. Please remove my address from the list. I told the clerk at the desk I didn't want this bullshit, and they said ok.

  • very noisy. The bathroom was not very clean, neither the bedding clothes. The wifi never worked. Also the staff in the front desk were not very nice to us. I would not recommend this hostel.

    Hello Sandra, I am really sorry to hear that you had a negative experience at our hostel. We work very hard to be a clean and friendly hostel, so I will reach out to you directly for more specifics on how we can improve. As for our free WiFi, no excuses, we were having intermittent problems with it during your stay and it was not fixed until after your departure. I truly wish we could have better served you! Sincerely, Michael Foyder General Manager

  • Only compliant was loud noise from the street. White noise machines in the future would be helpful as would be fans.

  • The staffs were very welcoming and sweet. The kitchen and the lounge were quite small for its size though. Except for that, it was fairly good for a hostel. Also, the atmosphere was very lively and good. Want to come back to this hostel very much!

  • When you see you this place, you won't think it's a hostel. You'll be certain it's a hotel. This place was fantastic. My fiance and I stayed in a private suite and absolutely loved it. The closet with spacious. The bathroom was perfect. We had everything we needed and more. The staff was polite. Overall, it had a wonderful environment. Yes, it is on the edge of the Tenderloin, but I never felt unsafe walking back to the hostel, even at night. I highly, highly recommend this place!

  • Overall my experience was very positive. The only drawback to the facility was the elevator; you had to hold the button for a very long time and hope that you were able to open the door in time before the elevator went back up. Opening the door in time was either luck or a skill I was unable to master in my four-day stay. Also be weary of the Tenderloin, which is only a block or two away.
