Hostelling International -USA: San Francisco Downtown

Member Rating 4 out of 5 by Mormik on January 26, 2007

I stayed in a private room. The price is competitive with other hostels and is half the price of hotel rooms in the same neighborhood. This hostel is great for its central location. It is very close to Union Square, Market Street, and Nob Hill. It is also close to the Tenderloin, a rough neighborhood that should be avoided at night. Be careful, there are usually homeless people outside the hostel asking for money, however they are quite harmless.

The hostel is relatively clean. The shower rooms are small and for one person only, so sometimes you have to wait.
The staff are friendly. To go inside, you have to show proof you are staying there, so it has reasonable security. There is free wireless Internet in the building, however it does not reach to some rooms. There are tons of restaurants for all budget types located nearby. I recommend this hostel for its prime location.
