  • There could be some better lighting at night outside, especially coming up the hill in the back, closest to the bay. That may not be the Hostel's property, but it has no lighting at all.

  • I stayed at this hostel back in 1983, then brought my family 33 years later on a trip to California in April 2015. It was outstanding both times. Great cafe with tremendous views of the Golden Gate and Alcatraz. Awesome great room where a couple travelers played piano and guitar while we listened and played chess. Travelers from all over. My wife and our 16 and 13 year olds enjoyed it very much.

  • I loved staying at Fort Mason! Great staff, comfortable beds, great facility, awesome location. The only thing I would have wanted more of was power outlets.

  • This place is excellent if you love being woken up twice at night by firearms, walking a significant distance from where you park, and less than mediocre breakfast. The only thing going for this place is location.

  • I reached airport midnight,so I contacted the staff to ask the way to the hostel by telephone. I worried if I couldn't contact to the staff I lost way to the hostel.But the staff taught me the way very kindly. Sometimes I contacted to ask the way,I could reach the hostel. I thought the staff is very kind and the hostel is very clean.In that time I couldn't stay for long time. Next time I want to stay long.

  • This Hostel was fantastic! Super clean and at a beautiful location. Very quite! However if you want to party this is not the place. I had a lot of older women in my room that went to bed at 9 and got up at 6am! Also it's far from the city center but you can take the bus into town which was ok. There is a great walkway to pier 39 and the hostel has a beautiful view of the harbor.

  • Very nice staff. This was my first time staying at a hostel, just needed a dry place to stay, get cleaned up and sleep while riding my motorcycle home from the northern coast. Parking was not as close as I would like, but hey, it's San francisco!

  • This experience blew my mind! I had never been to SF or stayed in a hostel before, this was the best trip I had ever taken. Location was perfect; safe, beautiful, and not far from cable cars to get downtown.The staff was friendly and super helpful. Thanks guys.
