Liked: Private room with our own bathroom was a bonus!

Disliked: A little run down but would you expect anything more for an inner city hostel?

Liked: Really clean. There was always cleaners either hoovering or going in and doing the bathrooms.Really don't understand peoples awful reviews of this place, I was expecting a full on dive and got a pleasant surprise For the price you're paying it's pretty decent.It's not in the Tenderloin as a lot of people make out it's situated between Bush and Sutter which has a few nice bars/cafés and within walking distance to most bus lines/Union Square.I never had a problem with the safety aspect being a solo female there was never any creeps lurking around outside which couldn't be said for other SF hostels which had higher ratings than the Amsterdam. I stayed in a four bed dorm (all bunks had ladders) and were pretty comfortable. Also our bathroom had a bath - a rarity in hostels which I was more than made up with after hiking the national parks of California for three weeks.It's not a party hostel like so many others in SF so if you're looking for that then you'd be better of going elsewhere. But for a decent sleep and just relaxing around the hostel I didn't have too many complaints.

Disliked: The wifi was pretty intermittent in certain areas of the hostel though to be fair it seems they are aware of the problem and were looking into it whilst I was there (August).The kitchen is pretty small so breakfast can be pretty cramped especially when everyone is trying to make pancakes at the same time. A hot water canister would be nice it took forever to boil water either on the stove or microwave. Also maybe some better toasters so if people have bought bread they can make toast without having to use the oven/grill.Some inconsiderate travellers ate my food which was clearly labelled as not being free so maybe some signs saying to respect other peoples labelled food would be helpful.

Liked: We stayed here for 3 nights and would have gladly stayed an extra night or two...unfortunately the hostel was already booked out. What I loved most was the central location (short walk to market street etc.), the friendly staff and the size of our 4-mixed-dorm with spacious private bathroom (room 102 on the bottow floor). I also really appreciated the built in hair-dryers, the huge mirrow in the bathroom and the dorm. The hostel also provided fresh sheets and towels.

Liked: It was the cheapest option!

Disliked: Staff looked questions up in google and don't know where the next grocery store is. The kitchen was not really for cooking.
