  • This hostel is at a great location, if you like water. Near by is a little beach and the historic port. A lot of rooms have bay view. It is located in a park so you have a nice green spot if you want to relax. The only bottleneck is that it is booked out so fast. It is very well organized and has great stuff.

  • “ I had my padlock broken on the assumption that I had failed the check out on that day! unbelievable! Even if it were true, which was not, instead of a fine, the padlock was broken and stuff removed. Got new one, very cheap

  • No charging station in a ten bed room. Have to wait outside with your phone to charge it night after you've traveled all day. That's the big downside. Everything else is pretty standard and value for money for the location. Showers could definitely improve. Have three showers in a bathroom with no curtains or partitions, so only one person ever goes in to shower.

  • The location of this hostel is awesome. This is a basic hostel and needs a lick of paint and say more power outlets bed light lamp. The breakfast was nice but the cafe was extremely small. The staff were helpful and polite.

  • The location of this hostel is the best attraction. You're literally 20 feet from the pathways along the water. Within Fort Mason there are green parks and a community garden. I'm not sure if this was a rare coincedence or common place, but the night I stayed here there was a block party / street festival with 20+ food trucks and a DJ located just down the hill. There were NO spots within the room to charge any electronics and the sheets were clean but clearly old. Good basic hostel.
