Wonderful - 4.5 out of 5

I'd stay here again.

Liked: Everything I needed and nothing I didn't. Very friendly staff. No curfew. Allowed to bring outside alcohol back to the room. Complimentary breakfast of bagels, oatmeal, coffee, fruit. And they hung on to my bags for the entire day while i walked around the city before my flight. Comfortable bed, big bathrooms. Great experience overall.
Disliked: Nothing! It was great!

Very good

Liked: The staff is really kind and helpful, fresh fruit is provided at the breakfast, the position is a good starting point to move around the all city
Disliked: The matress was not really confortable. It's a pity that the breakfast has only the sweet option and not the savory as well.

Excellent location

Liked: The location was excellent, near Union Square and the Powell Street Station which has BART and the MUNI Metro. Also the start/turnaround for the cable car is in the same location. There is a transportation kiosk near the entrance to the station for information. The hostel staff were very friendly and helpful. I checked out in the morning to go to a seminar, but my flight wasn't leaving until the evening and they held my luggage for me for the whole day, which I really appreciated. The rooms were clean and the noise for being in the downtown location was a minimum. The kitchen and dining area had everything I needed and was clean and well attended to. They even supplied a morning breakfast of bagels, oatmeal, fruit and juice as well as 24/7 coffee. They offer group activities such as tours, meet and greets and bar crawls if you are interested in mingling and getting to know your fellow travelers. This was the first time I stayed in a hostel and I would definitely stay here again when visiting San Francisco.
Disliked: The hostel is right in between the downtown/Union Square and the Tenderloin neighborhood. Be aware the the Tenderloin area just to the west may have safety concerns and there are a high number of homeless residents. Please take this in consideration when going out at night. The area where the hostel is located is safe, right on the edge of the downtown high end shopping district.

Liked: I loved it. Progressive (no plastic plates for breakfast, water is being reused for flushing), breakfast had a healthy option, staff was so helpful and the lounge was comfy. Also, perfect location, in the heart of the city. And painted ladies, fisherman's wharf and even the Golden gate bridge is in walking distance for sporty people. Can highly recommend!
