          Great location, great free breakfast (eggs!), clean rooms, bathrooms a bit gross but that's because you share them with so many people. Greatest common area I've seen in a while: a huge ballroom. Would definitely recommend. Free dinner as well on certain nights!

          This was one of the best hostels I stayed in throughout my travels! Felt really homely and the check-in was great providing info about the hostel and pointing out important things on a helpful map of San Francisco! We had a nice room too :) ! Very central location and would definitely stay again!

          I really liked this hostel. It had a good feel to it and the rooms were more than adequate. My only complaint is that the bathrooms were always full and on one occasion, I had to wait an hour for the shower, even though I was stood outside two shower rooms and kept checking the others on the floor. We stayed in a three person dorm room for the first night, which, although a little tight, was perfect and on the last two nights we were in the room on the roof. That room was really lovely with fantastic views but note you will have to use the toilets on the floor below. Breakfast was very good too. Would stay here again.

          Great location in North Hill. Close to Fisherman's Wharf and Union Square. Plentiful public transport means its quite easy to see all of SF from here. Downside is that there are a lot of shady clubs around, not unsafe but not exactly pretty.
          Standard facilities with comfortable beds. Bathrooms are a bit outdated but sufficient. Towels are $1 extra. Breakfast every morning is great, bagels and fruit as well as eggs.
          The great thing is the activities here - almost something happening every night including some free dinners. Almost always lively at night, just not for the ultra conservative.
