Staff is great and the bedrooms are very cool. I really appreciated the personal light and the energy outlets for each bed. Lockers are huge. Very clean. Decent breakfast. 4 blocks away from Union Square. In general, great hostel.

The rooms with 4 beds allow for more ability to engage with fellow travelers. The dining area downstairs is well maintained and the breakfast can fill you up easily. The staff are friendly and I made some great new friends in my 5 day stay here.

Lot of noise on climbing to the upper bunker beds, also while sleeping and turning the noise acts as an alarm to get up. Need more natural light rather than the gloomy feeling with those thick curtains. Excellent facility of breakfast with a good variety available. Option of eggs to be provided too.

So that pretty bad. But in general we had a... More

Good hostel with lots of facilities. Basement is great with a huge common area and a big kitchen. Beds are clean and staff is nice. Bit on the pricy side though but San Francisco is just a crazy expensive city.
