    Go to the beer olympics on friday nights. Its held right across the street. Great mix of hostelers and locals. $2 PBRs. Bring your A game and you could win a paper medal and plastic trophy.

    A super friendly and welcoming hostel in a great location when getting around SF. The dorms, ranging from 3 to 8 beds, are comfy and clean. The rooms quiet when not looking out onto the main road.

    A real hostel with a sense of community that makes it easy and fun to meet people and discover the city! They have a lot of rules about this and that, but it adds to the "flavor".

    Free fi-wi, friendly, free breakfast (oatmeal, eggs, yogurt, fruits, jams, peanut butter). Free vegetarian dinner 3 times in week with life music. Special offers (bikes, excursions). Clean enough

    They do a pub crawl to 5 bars, which is a good way to make friends. You need to pay $5 and you get 5 drink coupons for the bars. You get the drink for $ 2.50. which is a good deal.

    Good and clean budget hostel with good atmosphere, complimentary breakfast and activities. Well located, but some rooms are very very noisy by night - surrounded by bars and nightclubs...

    In the evening, buy some beer (and a few extra to share) from the shop a few doors down and exchange stories in the dinning area with the other guests.
