“This was one of the best hostels I've ever stayed in! The rooms and bathrooms were clean and the staff was friendly and helpful. Breakfast included various kinds of toast, English muffins, bagel things, bananas, oranges, and oatmeal. The movie room was closed when I was there so I didn't check that out, but the other facilities seemed pretty good. They offer excursions daily and the day hike from Sutro Baths to the bridge was great, but plan for a few hours. There was a lot of space to hang out!”

“Highly recommended! I stayed here for 5 nights as a female in a 4 bed mixed dorm and absolutely loved it! Had no issues with any other travellers coming and going and was so pleased with how clean and well run the hostel was. The bunk beds were great with chargers, personal light, shelf and privacy screen which I had not come across in other hostels. the breakfast was really good with fresh fruit, huge selection of toasts & spreads plus pancakes! To top it off the location was extremely convenient. Would highly recommend :)”
