“I had a great time in USA Hostels San Francisco. I've spent a total of 7 days there and I especially appreciated the evening activities. I for example had a great dinner with some other guests as well as Punam and Raquel (two of the volunteers working at USA Hostels San Francisco), who were also very helpful while planning my days in SF, because they suggested various very cool sightseeing activities! Thanks for that! ”
“Value for money, friendly staff and clean rooms. The real highlight for me was the walking tour run by Poonam, a woman from Bombay. She knew the city like the back of her hand and provided a wealth of information and recommendations. She even took us to a wonderful coffee shop and to two of the best pizza places in town. Poonam is the real MVP! ”
