“USA hostels is an awesome place to stay if you want to experience San Francisco like a local. I would highly recommend taking a free walking tour from the hostel, available on Mondays and Wednesdays. My walking tour with Poonam was really good! Instead of being touristy, it was like a local was showing us around. She recommended some great things to see, do and eat, and was always available for help after the tour. The hostel arranges karaoke nights, pub crawls and free dinners on some days too!”
“I really have a good time in the hostel. All the staff was very kind and helpful. The place is really comfortable, clean and nice. I will definitely come back if I have the chance! ”
