Liked: -One of the cheapest in SF-Good wifi

Disliked: -No common area to hang out-No kitchen-Not enough bathrooms-Single pane windows let in cold and street noise-Band rehearsals until 11pm disturb people who are jet lagged and want to sleep early-Reception open from around 9am to 11pm. Not convenient for late check-in.-They changed my room without telling me after 1st night due to overbooking and disactivated my keycard . Luckily I was totally jet lagged came back before 11pm to get keycard activated for new room. Otherwise, could have been locked out in the middle of the night!!-Cheapness and location means it attracts interesting characters. Some folks live in the hostel and will either sneak in their friends in who will then steal your bed or become hostile and territorial about you invading "their" space

Liked: The beds are beautifully comfortable.

Disliked: Rooms feature gas stoves and there seemed to be a gas leak due to the odor. It was not taken seriously by staff. Price quoted on your website was not the price they were charging me. This is currently under investigation.
