Liked: Location wasn't bad, staff is friendly. Bathroom in the room itself is nice to have.

Disliked: The rickety old bunk beds are from the 1940's with no ladder or stool to stand on to get up there. Dangerous at best. I jumped up from standing on a chair while my roommate had to use the locker shelf as a step up.

Liked: Auberge correct, globalement bien située, propose des réductions (location de vélos notamment), salle de bain privée dans chaque chambre, propre

Disliked: Personnel peu acceuillant et pas très aidant, le petit déjeuner consiste en un saladier de pâte à pancakes qu'il faut se faire soit même, plutôt loin de la station greyhound (35 minutes à pied)

Liked: Really good location within walking distance of all the main attractions + easily accessed by road for drop off / pick up. We were a group of 17 and this hostel was ideal with adjacent rooms allocated and plenty of space so that we didn't get in the way of other travellers. Free coffee and Wi-Fi is great.

Disliked: Nothing - tremendous value for money. There will be better places to stay is SF but not at this price!

Liked: Shower was all right. Close to Union Square

Disliked: We had a room at the streetlevel next to the street. This made me feel somewhat insecure. Also, staff knocked on the door while we were already asleep to get a matras that happened to be extra in our room. The staff was friendly, but nevertheless.

Liked: Our private room for 5 people was a good size, with a nice en suite bathroom. The showers were always hot and powerful. There were various activities organised like a pub crawl which would be good for travellers on their own (or anyone!)

Disliked: Our room wasn't cleaned the whole week we were there. Staff were ok but not that helpful. The kitchen shuts for cleaning at 10am for a while for cleaning so if you miss their breakfast you can't get your own for ages!

Liked: Location was convenient, a short walk to Powell and Market or Union Square. Plenty of good eating and drinking options close by.

Disliked: Very old and dated. Could do with an overhaul throughout, but as a hostel now, that is not likely to happen without prices going up.

Liked: Best for the price in San Fran. Cook your own pancakes awesome.

Disliked: Just be aware if coming by car they dont actually have parking on site but discounted rates around the corner at a garage 15 per day this was a little misleading from the website.
