  • Booked a 4 person dorm w/ private bathroom while attending a conference around the corner. Cheaper than anything else in the area. Had to ask for bathroom to be cleaned and shower repaired. Room was cold, beds had thin foam pads for mattresses. Linens were random, old, icky. Towels cost $5. Luggage room was constantly left open, and the code was posted publicly - not secure. At the edge of the Tenderloin - bad neighborhood. Communal kitchen is nice. Don't recommend.

  • Really friendly staff at the front desk. Was disappointed that they used polystyrene cups and plates, but think they're getting that sorted ;)

  • It's well located, just a few blocks from where the trolleys, cable car and buses come and go from the major spots. Near you have some cheap grocery stores. Good hostel, but the rooms have no window or its an internal one so you have little fresh aire to dry tour clothes.

  • Location is perfect. Sometimes there are problems with cleaning of public areas, and the floor in the dining area is often dirty, or it is impossible to enter the restroom. The stuff is rather helpful.

  • Advertising free breakfast then offering nothing more than pancake mix is very poor. Very few bathrooms, only 1 shower on most floors - bear in mind that each floor has approximately 15 rooms of 4. The use of plastic cutlery and plates and polystyrene cups is terrible, both environmentally unsound and wasteful. Only 3 or 4 sets of metal cutlery in the entire place.

  • awesome location and atmosphere. it's just a little noisy, plus super strange that there are no sinks in the bathrooms, but individual sinks in the bedrooms...... weird.

  • Everything was fine. I liked the free breakfast and water. But one thing that was disappointing is I couldn't use a WiFi in my room.
