Perfect for a overnight stay.
It’s in the downtown. And when you look out of the window and see an abandoned building next to yours, just close the curtains and get some sleep :) Also when you book a private room it still has 2 separate single beds.
Location is perfect to visit the city on foot, the room was quite big and with a nice view (6th floor) Parking (expensive) just in front
Old bathroom and the fitted carpet needs some renovation Price is high compared to the rest of the country but we found this common in SF Breakfast has limited choices and we ended up going to a restaurant
Homeless people outside. Noise from the road. Smell of urine in the whole hostel. Dirty floors.
Good Hostel in San Francisco Downtown. Grocery and Pharmacy shopping available in within 5 min walking. Clean rooms and bathroom. Good free breakfast included.
The size of the bunk beds are a bit to short. People with a length over 1,90 m / 6‘3 ft won’t be able to stretch out their legs completely.
Very good hostel. This hostel is very well-run. The hostel is located in a great area of San Francisco. I booked well in advance and got a good price (around $70 for a 3 person room- $96 after taxes and HI non-member fees), but I know that the price goes up considerably, so book earlier. Breakfast was very good and the kitchen was very nice. Parking - I just wanted to clarify with people in case they have a car. There is a parking garage that has parking for 35 or 39 across the street. There are some other options around too. If you are there on a weekend, you can park on the streets nearby, but just beware of all of the street cleaning schedules (they are posted). Some say no parking between 6-8am every day and others say no parking during those times for specific days. So you can get away without paying for parking at all, like I did, if you are careful.
I get that in hostels you have to do things yourself, but I ended up having to put the sheets on the bed in my private room on the top bunk late at night after my travel companion went to bed). Obviously, if I had noticed this earlier than I would have done it myself, but I think the bottom bed was already made, so I didn't notice. Considering the price that people are paying for a hostel like this, I thought that the bed could have already been made. Maybe this is how they show that they are providing clean linen...
