  • Orange Hostel was a friendly place. Staff was able to accommodate my communication needs by allowing the use of a calling card on a cordless phone. When a repair was necessary, it was performed in a timely manner. One observation might be that, although the staff did not offer bicycle storage, I noted bicycles stored in the common rooms on the upper floors. Because my bicycle was locked up a few blocks away in a "safer" part of town, it was stolen 7/31/15.

  • The location is in the semi dodgy area of town so be aware of the level of homeless people lurking around. Other than that the hostel staff were really nice and the breakfast was more than sufficient. The bathroom and rooms were clean and tidy as well. Only down side was the shower being really small.

  • Hostel was top class! Great atmosphere and really helpful staff. Jenny's organisation of the superhero night with free pizza was the cherry on the cake! Thanks a million

  • My flight was delayed til the next morning and there was nothing they could do to cancel my reservation without charging me. Yes, I understand there is a 48 hour notice but seriously, at a hostel?! When my friend showed up to get some of our money's worth fr the room, take a shower and nap that day, they would not allow him, saying it had been completely cancelled. Even though I was still paying for the space... This place is also in the Tenderloin, really sketchy neighborhood.

  • Don't expect too much, the kitchen is too small for the whole crowd of people especially when it comes to breakfast. Breakfast is okay,but kitchen is old and not neat nor clean. Bring your own sheets if possible, they don't provide enough. But nevertheless the pub crawl on Wednesdays is nice and the staff as well. Thursdays they provide free pizza for dinner.

  • The neighborhood does not feel very safe, there are lots of homeless people. The sheets and the towels were not always clean. The beds were good. Free waffles, coffee (not the best) and orange juice for breakfast.

  • This hostel was in a convenient location although the neighborhood was rough. The hostel had everything from good breakfast to lockers in the room but the dorms were bare bones. Not a good place to hang out if you wanted peace and quiet. Common area was the only place. Rooms for sleeping only
