talamaskan Great place located in downtown San Francisco. The staff are all friendly and helpful. My only complaint would be that when we checked out, our flight leaving SF was only in the evening, so we left our luggage in the luggage storage facility that they provided while we went out on our final shopping spree. The weather was awful, so my husband left his somewhat expensive finely crafted cowboy hat in the storage room on top of his suitcase. When it came time to pick up our luggage, our suitcases had been moved (and only staff have access to the area, apart from when you're getting your items out), and my husband's hat had been thrown up onto the top shelf, completely out of eyesight. Not only that, but another person's sleeping bag had been thrown and left on top of it, crushing it and bending it completely out of shape. There was plenty of other spaces to safely store the hat, so they really had no excuse. It ended our stay quite sourly, but I guess if you take away the fact that they don't have any interest in your personal belongings, it was a fabulous place to stay at. And you can't go wrong with the free all-you-can-make-and-eat-pancakes for brekky everyday! :o)
s.lovell Great place! Excellent location, great breakfast (though if you want the bagels, get down before 8.30am, or they all go and you may only get toast) - they also sell organic fruit at breakfast. Good facilities - offer a DVD free every night of the week, friendly staff, friendly travellers - good variety of ages and nationalities. This place is a real gem, with such easy access to San Francisco - I thought it was excellent.

jane160975 A brilliant location for the Golden Gate bridge and Alcatraz and the trams. Good value for money. Makes a longer stay in San Francisco possible.
bombert I can certainly recommend this hostel. You walk in and it feels like a hotel, beautiful lobby and lounge area. The rooms are nice, clean and quiet. The staff are really knowledgeable and helpful. The free breakfast is handy though nothing special and it would be nice to have more condiments than just jam, and the breakfast room is a little small for such a big hostel - but these are really small things. The only really big down point for this place is that it is in a distinctly dodgy area with lots of drunks, druggies and panhandlers around. Nevertheless it is quite central and good value overall.
SilverHoli This hostel was somewhat mediocre, with some surprise benefits and disadvantages. The en suite bathrooms were nice and the location is excellent. Staff were attentive and helpful, and the place was definitely cleaned well. On the negative side, lighting was poor and the beds were very old and without ladders to the top bunk! The breakfast was insubstantial. Overall, I was content with my stay there.
sibh08.q He hostel is old needing a good renovation, the bathroom is too dark at night, with no mirrors.It's right over a pub and music starts early on in the day til late at night. There was no air conditioning so we had to leave the window open making it even harder to sleep with the noise from the street. There was no remote for the tv and it only had about 8channels. Bathrooms were clean. If u wanted housekeeping I think you need to ask.
