“Excellent! You can make your own pancakes in the morning! Good because there is organised things to do everyday, you also get a great bike discount so can rent bikes for a lot cheaper than many other companies are offering. A happy safe place to make some new friends and stay during your visit to San Francisco. Very good wifi and places fo hang out. Bring a big lock as small ones don't fit the lockers!”
“Overall positive experience! USA Hostels was an overall good experience. The facilities are good, personal light and socket on the beds is a brilliant idea. Charging points in the lockers is also very handy! They had plenty of free or cheap activities on each day although I only managed to do the pub crawl. Was good and met plenty of people on it. Location is good, a few blocks across from Union Square. About a 30-40 minute walk to Fisherman's Wharf but up and down some huge notorious San Francisco hills.”
