The staff was helpful and friendly. The rooms were clean.
The second morning the continental breakfast was not ready an hour after it was supposed to have been opened. The neighborhood has a lot of homeless which is not necessarily safe nor inviting.
Hey I am from India. Hostel is amazing. It's a good idea of international hosteling where all around the world can stay here, I think it improves a lot in culture, behavior and communication. Especially common spaces are really awsome, peaceful and can work at any time. Aesthetic kitchen.
The area where the hostel situated is not good. I heard from the local people that it's not a good place to live. However it's depends on the person.
Clean friendly convenient
The rooms were clean and comfortable beds, and the Hostel vibe is just amazing, love the Mexican decoration and the community area! I loved it!
To many homeless people around the area but it’s understandable, almost all downtown area in San Francisco has a lot of homeless people and that was very sad to watch.
The heater should be on more regularly, it was cold inside the room. City hall area seemed a bit unsafe for walking in the evening.
