Green Tortoise was a great choice, good people, nice atmosphere, good spot and helpful staff. They have a good breakfast and 3 free dinners a week (you are encouraged to help cook). Was in quite a good spot, close to Little Italy, Chinatown and the water. It's quite a big hostel, but still friendly and easy to meet people if you're traveling on your own. An old building, but still secure and clean.
Amazing atmospheric common room in an ex ballroom, with high ceilings and a piano where everyone eats. Well equipped kitchen, helpful staff, pool table, great location. We got a room in a separate building that was like having a whole house to ourselves and a couple of other people. We had an incredible view of the skyline and harbour from our window and balcony. And free dinner twice a week!

The rooms were nice and clean and long beds which is great considering I'm rather tall. Also the walking tour by Brian was awesome! Showed me so much about San Fran I had never known or thought about!
In the world of hostels, this is KING. You're staying in a hostel, not a hotel, so you know what to expect. But this is a really good hostel. Ok, the bathrooms are clean and plentiful - I didn't have to wait for a shower once. The toilets, sinks and showers are often separate, so you're not having to wait for someone to finish all their ablutions. There are soap dispensers, so don't worry about that; and you get given a towel on check-in with no extra charge. The rooms are mostly 4 bed dorms; so not too much noise. That said, there are free earplugs at reception. Sheets are also included at no extra charge. The beds all have a socket, 2 charging USB ports and a light. There are lockers in the rooms too (bring a decent lock) and even they have two sockets inside so you can leave stuff on charge whilst you're out. Free WiFi is included. Breakfast downstairs is until 10am and it's included, no extra charge. You get bread (including cinnamon fruit loaf), muffins (sometimes) and bagels with butter, jams and soft cheese. You get fruit, fruit juice, teas and coffees (good selection of teas). They even have pancake mix, griddles and syrup. It's good. The kitchen is VERY good for your own cooking needs as well They have laundry and vending machines as well as shared use computers - I didn't use these so can't comment on them. The hostel is really well organised too - they have some sort of social event every evening to get you introduced to each other which is really good. They have shuttle buses to the airport, and lots free maps and other San Fran info. I stayed in April; so can't comment on either air-con or heating. I also cannot comment on accessibility features, though from my recall there were steps at the front. There may be disabled access or other accessibility features of which I am not aware. It is about a 5 minute walk to/from the F-car stops, to the buses, to the Muni subway and the BART system (direct from the airport) on Market Street. It is about a 10 minute ride on the F-car to either the Ferry building on the Embarcardero, or to the Castro areas.

4 of us fitted into our room there was plenty of space for the beds and to walk around.
Its in a very good tourist location where you can have easy access to many attractions within walking distance. It was very nice being able to have a refrigerator and a microwave in the room.

This Hostel caters to Koreans who are quiet and repectful, There is plastic wrap to store your food, the other hostels have none...there is plenty of fruit not rationed as in all the other hostels, and dry cereal and waffles or pancakes are complimentary there is also plentiful OJ and 2% milk, at breakfast and the coffee is good. the kitchen is nice and clean, these is cooking spray,
This hostel is a work in progress! The building was the former Columbia Hotel and now it is being transitioned into a hostel. Our first room was a double en suite with desk, refrig, microwave. It was comfortable, clean, big enough. When we extended our stay, we moved to a similar room on a higher floor facing the street. It was big and bright but a bit noisy some nights. The staff is friendly and very helpful. The breakfast is chaotic due to a small kitchen not well organized. This will change when the new lounge is finished and more space for seating and moving around is available. The location is perfect - easy walking to many cafes and shops. Plenty of transit, too. We'd stay here again!

Friendly staff comfortable beds someone on the desk 24/24, staff very helpful to point out any attractions or bars in the area
Located centrally it is easy to get places, but in a terrible neighbourhood. Many left early as they did not feel safe. Very clean, fresh towel every day is fantastic.
