Liked: Pretty much everything.

Disliked: Breakfast should be more Continental and provide more variety. It is located in Tenderlion, worst area in town, full of weirdos, freaks, drunk, homelesses, prostitues, ... Rather than that, the hostel is pretty Amazing. Staff is super.

Liked: The staff were very friendly and helpful, and easy to get to places. The free walking tour with Adriene amazing

Disliked: The noise was unbearable. I was put next to the lift which banged all night. Very noisy young American females making a rumpas at 3 am . Also a lot more expensive than a hotel . Have one now for $20 a night less with my own bathroom and no noise .

15 May 2014 Customer would recommend this property

Liked: the kitchen is well equipped and there are plenty of day trips and nights out run by the hostel.

Disliked: the lack of air flow in the room makes it incredibly hot and leaves a bad smell in the room. Having to show your card to reception upon entry to the hostel every time, just install a card reader so there's no need to wait for a member of staff to see you as there are times when you end up waiting to get in.

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.
