4 of us visiting from Australia. Stayed in a private room with own bathroom . The place is basic , but clean and served its purpose providing a clean comfy bed to stay in . It was quiet and in a good location . We caught the train from the Airport and got off Powell street and walked to the...

I was expecting this place to be what it is, well located but not clean (especially the smelly carpets). The atmosphere was weird too, especially at the make-yourself-pancake breakfast. But I had read that in other reviews. What I wasn't expecting was the awkward and insensitive situation I went through with the staff. As I was checking in, the guy...

Stayed in a private room with our own bathroom for 4 nights. The room was clean and cozy though it can be cool at night. Breakfast is provided with pancakes and tea and coffee. You can also do your own cooking and save some money though I recommend trying a lots of food in SF. Really satisfied experience

To be honest I'm not used to spending a hundred a night on a one star I thought that was disgusting.... although I guess San Francisco is very expensive for some reason ?! and this is the cheaper end of the scale I don't know?! It was ok, bit weird that we had to make our own beds after spending...

We had 3 nights there in a 2 bunk room. The shower didnt work so good. There wasnt internet working in the room only in the looby. It was dirty and smelled on the hallway. But it was cheap and had a good location. We was in the middle og San Francisco.

Hair on the "clean" towels, tape holding down what's left of the carpet...I asked the front desk how to stop up the tub to take a bath and was told they'd get back to me in 10 minutes. An hour later I went back to the front desk and was told that all tubs have been modified to make taking...

I stayed 1 night only in a 4 bedroom with bathroom. The room was next to the kitchen so it was super noisy. The shower in the room was malfunction so I needed to shower in the toilets next to the reception WHAT??. It's very expensive and the hotel hasn't been renovated for awhile. The checkin is a 4pm and...

I stayed here for between 9th and 14th December and I had no complaints, I am in my early 20s so I only really wanted a place with a roof, 4 walls and somewhere to sleep. I found the reception staff helpful enough during my stay, it is maybe about a 5-10 minute walk to downtown and the financial district,...

If you book early enough you'll have a room for $20 to $25 according to the period. Moreover, you can cook, and get a laundry for $3.50 so you save even more money. Also, the hostel is in the city right by Chinatown, and 30 minutes of walk from the Piers. However, the place is noisy, only one floor provides...
