Went to SF for a few nights to explore the city. Awesome hostel with a fun, laid-back vibe, friendly staff, and clean rooms. They have events for the guests to participate in every day of the week which is nice if you're a solo traveler/looking to mingle with others.

This is the best hostel in the world!! Fun atmosphere, great facilities, perfect location and friendly staff. You could not want more in a stay. Activities ran every day for guests and all free!! Sets the bar very high.

The hostel is great and offers a lot of activities. Made good friends there. The rooms are clean and good for any type of trip. The hostel is located close to the city center and you can walk to Union Square and fishermans warf. Had some great days in SF. Would come back 100% to this hostel.

The room was clean and safe. The staff was knowledgeable and offered a number of tips and maps for exploring the city. Organized trips were available everyday. Great for solo or group travelers looking for a cheaper option than Air Bnb.

This was a great option for us to stay in SF - it's big, so has a very different feel if you're travelling on your own, but the staff were friendly and could give lots of advice on what to do. The breakfast was outstanding and there was enough left even if you turned up 10 mins before it stopped!...

It's a hostel mostly filled with young backpackers and students from all over the world. I felt a bit old in my early 30s :-) This was my first ever hostel and I stayed because I wanted to find the cheapest place to sleap and take a bath and get out for my work early and come back late. Given...

We were really impressed and pleasantly surprised with this hostel. Friendly staff, modern building with all amenities needed. We especially liked the extra touches such as water dispensers, iPads for internet and evening activities. Plus the breakfast was great - lots of variety, toast, juice, porridge etc - much appreciated. The only small downside was that you have to make...

The place is just ok but there is something smelly along the 2nd floor hallway. Overall it's clean and safe. You can prepare your own pancakes with fruits. Near many restaurants. We transfer to a hotel just beside for a same rate for 3 persons.
