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

Liked: Not much. Only the location

Disliked: Shocking kitchen. Haven't seen a kitchen as dirty as that one. Lift is old and broken. The hostel covers 6 levels so walking the stairs with luggage is terrible. Staff are friendly but not that helpful. Full of volunteers who don't have much knowledge of San Fran and they promote a bike company which is pretty ordinary

Liked: The staff are really friendly and helpful.

Disliked: There are only a few bathrooms and they are old and cannot function properly. It is super stupid to have bathrooms without basin for hand-washing and you have to go back to your room to wash your hands. This is absolutely unhygienic.

Liked: The staff are really friendly and there are a number of activities offered by the hostel. Location is great, really close to Market St.

Disliked: The wifi is alright in the common room, but doesn't work well in the dorm rooms. The hostel could definitely use some updating, and there were no lockers in the rooms (though there are some on the first floor).
