    We stayed in a private room with en-suite which was comfortable, clean and relatively quiet (apart from the homeless guy outside singing at the top of his voice for most of the day and night.) The complimentary breakfast was served upstairs and included bagels, cream cheese, jam, porridge, fruit, tea and coffee. Location was great, very central and close to the bus routes.

    Place was in a great location.
    Nice to have the free breakfast (toast or bagels with the occasional fresh fruit). Great to base your sightseeing from. Fairly clean.

    We stayed at HI San Francisco Downtown for the first 7 nights we were in San Fran and then again 1 night before we left. Overall, I was very happy with it. The first 7 nights we were in room 511. It was clean and relatively quiet. We had a private room with a shared bathroom. The bathrooms were also clean and we there was never a time when we hd to wait in line or anything. The toilets had this built in sink on the tank that saves water. I though that was neat. The kitchen was clean and well maintained with nice window views of the street. The staff was very helpful and full of great recommendations for restraunts and directions.
    Our one night stay at the end of our trip was not as good. We were on the 2nd floor and it was very noisy from the front desk and people coming up the stairs all night. Also someone was smoking a lot of pot and it was drifting into our window, which was annoying. But hey, 7 good nights out of 8 isn't too shabby, right? :) And the location is awesome. 2 blocks from Union Square, 2 blocks from Bart Powell Station, F-line and the Trolly line.

    allocated room 325...a box in the middle of the building...2 windows into a shaft. No air even though open, boiling hot even though its was early March. Squeezed in between the vending machine room which buzzed all night and was filled up at 11pm and the toilet and shower next door. Needless to say we moved rooms and upgraded to an en-suite double.

    For shared bathrooms there are only 2 toilets and 2 showers per floor which has 25 rooms per floor. Some of these are doubles and some are dorms, so if full you're looking at 50+ people! This explains why I had to wait 15 mins to use the loo.

    Includes free breakfast. First day there were loads of bagels, next day only 2 varieties to choose from, by the end of the week there was only bread. It looks like they only get the bagels delivered at the weekend.

    Once moved, our room was great. Hot shower, comfy bed and quiet room.

    Excellent location.

    The wi-fi was a bit up and down, but just about everyone there had a laptop so I guess it could have been traffic.

    It was a sad but exciting day. We had to say goodbye to our beloved Jucy van but on the positive side, we were in San Francisco baby!!! After not enjoying LA as much as we had inticipated but enjoying the four towns on the west coast, we were praying we would like San Francisco and boy we were not wrong. It is a city that had captured our hearts, …

    I arrived in San Francisco to rain. It was dreary, wet and cold but arrived safely at the YHA Downtown and head straight out to firstly but an umbrella and secondly to buy my 3 Day Vistior Passport which gives me unlimited Muni, Metro and streetcar and Cable car transport. The Muni is a great way to explore the hilly city and very easy to navigate …
