  • Strategic location. Do not forget to bring your own padlock. Good for traveller who just want to rest. Light off around 23.00 Easier for me to use google maps to understand public transportation. Sufficient breakfast. Overall value for money hostel and I am very satisfied.

  • At first my floor didn't seem like it had enough bathrooms or showers but I never actually had to wait for one so that was ok afterall. I do think you guys need more mirrors and sinks based on the number of women I saw applying hair and makeup sitiing in front of those huge mirrors in the hall. I dobt think you need more bathrooms, just if you found an odd spot or two on each floor and put up a few mirrors with counters and maybe an outlet.

  • As a woman traveling alone, I felt very safe here and I had a great time. The staff was awesome. It's a quirky hostel with good amenities. Everything feels really clean and it was an easy environment to meet people in.

  • The Bad: the hostel is located close to a neighborhood called Tenderloin, which is the worst area in SF. Another thing I didn't like was the odor of the carpet in the rooms. The Good: this place has nice instalations, social areas, group activities all week and good quality breakfast.
    Owner Comment

    Thank you for the review. I am sorry to hear about the issue with the carpet you described, as well as your discomfort with our location. We will certainly look into the carpet in your room. This is something which is clearly not up to our standards! I am happy to hear you still enjoyed the other aspects of your stay. We appreciate the feedback! -Sincerely, Michael Foyder, GM
