8/10 Very good

Clean, good location, awesome staff but bed is…
The staff are awesome! The room is clean and big. There are lockers in the closet if you need it. Location is very good. Near Fisherman’s Wharf and Lombard Crookedest Street. No kitchen but at least they have two fridges to put perishables. The lobby/combined eating area is small. I love that there’s free parking available on the property. Only thing I didn’t like was the spring mattress that creaks every time I move, disturbing my roommates and also not very comfortable to sleep on. It really hurt my back. For the price they charge, at least get some memory foam mattress at Ikea. That’ll be a lot better that the cheap creaky, hurts-my-back spring mattress.

6/10 Good

Clean and decent rooms
Front staff was great (Lucy) and very helpful! Overall, hotel is fine. Mattress could have been better. The rooms to Lombard Street are very loud during the night due to the constant traffic. The hotel provides war plugs but they don’t really help much. Free parking was important to us

10/10 Exceptional

This hostel was the best I have ever stayed at. The staff were really great and friendly. The rooms were clean and there was daily housekeeping. Free coffee in the mornings and it is in a great higher part of San Francisco so there wasn't any dodgy people hanging around. The hostel is very close to all the top places to go and if you're into walking while on holidays, it's easily done. There were only minor issues like the shower was either freezing or scolding and the toilet needed to be flushed a couple of times.
