Liked: Nothing

Disliked: Everything, but will mention a few things: 1. Really unfriendly staff, they don't care about their guests at all. They didn't answer any of our questions, instead they refered us to the internet. 2. The showers didn't work 3. It was mold on the toiletseat... 4. ... and it smelled like pee on the fifth floor. 5. The little breakfast that they said were included is basically bad pancake dough that you have to look for by yourself. 6. The relevantly high price for what you get, it's not worth more than 5 dollars per night in my opinion. Go somewere else so someone can close this thing down!

Liked: great location and it's got some character.

Disliked: cleanliness was terrible! I understand that it is an old building, but one shower and one toilet on each floor is not enough!! Especially, when there is mould in the bathrooms and they are very dirty and old. PLEASE renovate the bathrooms.

Liked: The staff were incredibly helpful and friendly with great recommendations of places to visit and good restaurants in the local area and further afield. The location was perfect in walking distance of most key locations and a 2 minute walk from the tram to Fisherman's Wharf - absolutely perfect!

Disliked: I didn't dislike anything it was clean and easily accessible I felt it was good value for money and great for a few days stay in the city....

Liked: The location in downtown San Francisco made it very easy to get to places by public transport because most of the routes are accessible from here.

Disliked: There was an unpleasant odor throughout the hostel. The lights are too dim in the room. Also, the food queue to make pancakes for breakfast was way too long in the morning, so I did not end up eating breakfast at the hostel.

22 May 2015 Dylan would recommend this property

Liked: Both location andprice are the draw points of this hostel.located right next to the Powell and Mason cable car stop and a major transport link on Market means you are a bus, trolley or cable car ride from just about anywhere. The staff were generally good especially Lee who was always welcoming and happy to assist. There is a free breakfast which is make your own pancakes and coffer/tea. However pancakes after about the 3rd day started to get rather old. I suggest that they consider offering cereal and perhaps fruit as well. If you are looking for good location and budget the this is the placefor you.

Disliked: While it not the worst hostel I have stayed in (that privilege goes to one in Hong Kong!) It does come close. Main issues are the lack of lockers in the rooms which is a major concern when travelling. WhIle there are lockers on the 1st floor these are small and if you are on the 6th floor not a great location. The rooms are OK but our dorm had no curtains. Also bathrooms are limited on each floor so expect a wait in the mornings unless your an early riser. But for the price you can put some of that aside.

Liked: Very convenient location right in the heart of downtown SF/ tenderloin area with easy access to BART/malls/great restaurants nearby. Both common areas are nice with friendly atmosphere Rooms are clean and with a private sink Many showers on the 1st floor for guest to use.

Disliked: Only one shower on the 2nd floor and was quite dirty so i just used the ones on the 1st floor they're way better The ground floor common area/dining area can get quite dirty with all the beer cups and spills on the table Rooms are a bit small
