I booked 3 nights at the Adelaide for a quick visit to San Francisco. Much like SF, the Adelaide enchants lodgers with its affable crowd and its cosy corners, brimming with character. I extended my stay for another 3 days and then for a further 2. Leaving was clearly hard. Good breakfast, clever dorms, many great activities and events and...

I really enjoyed the stay at Adelaide in San Francisco. The little bed closets are perfect for a quiet and private nights rest. The staff is friendly. Breakfast has enough options to fill up on and start the day. There is also lots of info on local bars/ restaurants and tours. We will be back!

A fantastic team greeted me at The Adelaide and arriving jet-lagged and dazed, they took great care of me. I was delighted to find this place and it's slap at the heart of SF. They also run many events and tours and it's an ideal way to meet people. The room was clean and quiet and very comfortable. The breakfast...

So, I've been living here for a week now and I'm still going to stay for another one. This place is just great. It's located downtown, so easy access to all shopping and "must see" areas, and easy access to transportation to areas in other parts of town. It's the cheapest one I could find for such a long stay,...

We were looking for a relatively inexpensive place to stay with a family in central San Francisco in August 2014. We came on the idea of a hostel, and found the Adelaide. It looked lovely, centrally located, friendly and with a good reputation. We rang and booked a private room for three nights to accommodate the family. We arrived on...

This hostel has everything you can wish for! To begin with, when you check in, the staff is more than just friendly, they will do whatever they can to make your stay the best experience, such as helping you make plans. The rooms are very big, I stayed in a 4bed room. There is plenty of space to store your...

Stayed in the Adelaide hostel for 2 nights at the end of June. The staff were all very pleasant and helpful! I was in a 6 bed female dorm and it was perfect, the beds come with a privacy curtain and plugs at each bedside which were extremely useful! The lockers under the bed are huge and mean the room...

This hostel was fantastic, fresh fruit at the free breakfast, individual shower/toilet rooms (not stalls), great free events and free dinners! The beds have individual curtains to draw across them, so even though it does nothing about noise, if someone turns the light on at 3 am, you're not going to notice. The only downside is that the plugs for...
