The mattresses creaked a lot, it's hard to sleep when people are always moving about so would not recommend for light sleepers for a dorm room. Lockers are only suitable for small suitcases or backpacks as none of our large suitcases fit. It's close to the tenderloin district so when walking home one night it was really scary. The lifts...

Stayed here for 4 nights this month in a 4 person shared room with 2 of my friends. We were lucky to have a great room mate too. Our room had a private bathroom but also located near to the shared showers. The entire hostel was spotless. The set up with the pod style beds is a great idea. Breakfast...

I was travelling alone in San Francisco and this place was amazing for solo travellers like myself. I chose a 4 room female dorm with private shower and it was definitely worth the upgrade. Very convenient having the shower in the room instead of having to go out. Location of hostel was also good, you can walk to Union Square...

It's centrally located, clean, and very well equipped. The staff are friendly and always ready to help. Staff arrange activities during the evening and escort willing participants on outings. There is no shortage of activities and fun to be had.

The whole experience was great. The team, the room and the shared spaces were clean and tidy continuously. I didn't have the time to explore more to be able to give more feedback. The only issue I had was resolved on the spot.

Such a grand hostel, some motels and hotels aren't even as nice as this. Clean, convenient bathrooms - always a winner! Kitchen well stocked in the morning, access to tea and coffee all day that was nice at night. Super sweet place :)
