    Great staff, tenderloin so a little sketch but otherwise awesome location off market near Bart/muni etc. need more showers and toilets! Just pancakes for b/fast. Have private rooms. Food is expensive!

    I paid extra to stay in a female dom, but they put males in occasionally as well. I'm not happy since they charge extra for female dom. Great location though. Also free make your own pancake everyday.

    The best option in downtown for a few bucks, nice rooms, clean shower, and good vibes from other guests and the staff.

    Best hostel in SF. Right downtown near powell station and the secret underground party bunker with free beer is a nice bonus

    The big Chinese guy, at the reception (working at night) was threatening to throw us out because we put some music on in the common room. He's enjoying to take advantage of his position! Disgusting!

    Shit hostel. Staff have no idea what they are doing most of the time. Asking for a key deposit but not having enough keys to give everyone. 1 key between 3 people. Sketchy ass place! Last ditch resort

    Free vodka shots for the ladies can end up very messily as demonstrated by the drunk Dutch girl in our dorm.

    One of the employees is extremely rude and sarcastic when treating with guest and is always arguing with somebody, i hope he gets fired because personaly he treated me really bad.

    Not quiet. NEVER. No towels. No private lockers for luggage in the room. Also it is cold too. If someone asks about this hostel, i would say DONT STAY - even though the price is cheap!

    The breakfast is good but the problem are the stupid people that don't know how to make a pancake.

    Avoid. The common area stinks, the shower water is very small. Sketchy place. Don't mistake it with the San Francisco Hostel International which is a way better hostel than this one.

    Alcatraz had better rooms, no sockets, towels, given some old bedsheets to make own beds. Can't complain as half the price of cheapest hotel

    Pros: Económico y ubicación privilegiada pues se encuentra a unas cuadras de Union Square, de la estación principal del cable car y del metro. Contras: Sucio y viejo.

    Atendimento fraco, pessoal confuso. Dependendo do andar, o wi-fi não funciona. Banheiro não tem cortina, não tem toalha, não tem sabonete.
