great place to stay for long or short time, I enjoyed the breakfast and you have everything that you need to feel like at home. Great ambiance, the team is very helpful and friendly. There is a shuttle from the hostel to the airport ( even if you elave at 4am )

Staff is very helpful. As a senior with mobility problems, it's reassuring to know that I will get the assistance I need. The guests are very kind and helpful as well. All I have to do is ask. The elevator does need to be modernized. This is the place to stay when in San Francisco.

The rooms were good, the bed has a structure in metal that protects the head of the bed from light and gives you more privacy. The bathroom was good too, but the light was turning on and off all the time (I think thats because the light turns on automatically with movement, but the movement sensor wasn't working very well)....

USA hostel in San Francisco is a really nice hostel. The dorm was nice, a little noisy because the window was facing the street. The area is good, you can find bus and train stops nearby as well as points of interest that you can walk to. Breakfast was good as well as security and common areas.

Loved this hostel! It was clean, had great amenities, private bathrooms and showers, and it was right in the heart of downtown. It is in a bit of a sketchy area of San Fran, but we had no problems! We were out and about in other parts of the city so it didn't make a difference. My car was parked...

I stayed here for seven nights in total and was really impressed by the quality of the facilities and the rooms and also the enthusiasm all of the volunteers and members of staff. The rooms themselves are quite basic, which is what you pay for, but you are provided with clean linens and a towel. The beds are comfortable and...

Wonderful staff, incredible beds. I splurged for the ensuite room and it was TOTALLY worth it. Cool location, funky interior. I was impressed both with communication before my stay and the ease of access I had during my time in San Francisco.

We had a great stay, room is small and has no view but for the price is perfect. The location is great, service was too (you just have to do your own dishes after breakfast, it's a hostel, not a hotel). I reccomend it!

Bring a lock to store your things in the in-room lockers. Or you can buy one for $4. The hostel provides sheets and towels and you make your own bed. The hostel staff were super friendly and the activities were great for solo travelers-there were plenty of friendly solo travelers there! The location isn't amazing if you want to be...

It was an acceptable service, not bad. Sometimes you can smell bad odor in the corridors and in the rooms. It's maybe becuase of wc that are close to rooms or that the latters are not enough exposed to sun.

Thanks for your stay and for your feedback. All of our hallway restrooms are cleaned 3 times a day. Once in the morning, once in the afternoon, and once in the evening and are well ventilated. Thanks again for your stay and safe travels.

“If you stay in dorm room, pay a few bucks more to stay at one with private bathroom. Then you can have the public bathroom as a backup. ”
