  • This hostel is the cheapest one in San Francisco. I liked it because you meet people really quick there because of the partys in the evening. You get pancakes the whole day for free. Coffee and water, too. To my mind it was a good deal. BUT you can not expect that everything is perfect cleaned for a cheap hostel like this, if you only pay 17-20 dollars. All in all I would say.. it is only a hostel. You sleep there and that's all. ..and you join the partys in the evening.

  • BED BUCKS! Don't go to this hostel. I have bites everywhere,never experienced anything like this in any hostel where I have been. There was also only was one shower for the whole floor, and there were like 50 people staying in the floor. That was outrageous. Only good thing I can come up up to is the location.

  • Backpacker hostel .... Cheap but really NOT clean at all. The list of black dots would be too long, but I guess you should come here if on a small budget and don't mind and don't care about anything else .....

  • It was really cold. I think they don't have a heater inside the dorm. I almost cough a cold.

  • I would reccomend this place only if you're very tight on money, otherwise I'd say spend the extra $7-$10 and pick another place. There were very few bathrooms, and they were disgusting. They seem to give out keys without checking to see to see if that particular room is already full.

  • My friends and I thought this hostel was very disgusting. It was not clean at all. There are also no refunds given. You get what you pay for.
