Good location in the heart of downtown SF. You have some privacy in the room with your own little cubi-bunk. I was there on Superbowl Sunday. They showed the game on their small cinema and there was free pizza and beer! Its a very clean & safe hostel, slightly more pricey than the other good ones in SF.
