Liked: I really liked this place. It's a big hostel, but still easy to meet people because there is something going on every day/night of the week that you can join. It has all the facilities you could want - big lockers in the rooms, free wifi, laundry downstairs, tea and coffee. I will absolutely be staying here again when I come back to San Francisco.

Liked: I loved this hostel! The room was big with only 4 beds, really nice facilities with privacy screens on the beds and very comfy mattresses, we even got a lovely towel - no charge, and there was a hair dryer girls :) It's the small details that make this hostel amazing, great social area with free pool table and table football, cinema room, lots of free activities including a fantastic city walking tour. I did mine with Brendan the manager, absolutely top guy! Morning pancakes are great with fresh fruit and free tea and coffee all day. Would definitely recommend, great for meeting people!

Liked: Great activities organized by the hostel (pub crawls, bike rides, games) Nice to also have people actually living in the hostel, since you find people that have more experience in the city and different perspective (and not everybody rushing through there vacation time).

Disliked: It's not in the best part of San Francisco. I didn't mind that much, but it was difficult to get friends to come to that part of town :).

Liked: We booked a private room with a shared bathroom. The room was compact but comfortable. It had a full sized fridge, microwave, TV, IPod dock and sink which was more than I thought we would get. The location was close to downtown. The hostel has a funky design, the complementary breakfast am is reasonable and the showers were hot and powerful. Apart from noise outside the window, the hostel itself was very quiet.

Disliked: Customer left no negative feedback.
