No hot water in shower some mornings
As far as hostels go, this is very comfortable with good facilities. The staff were super friendly and chatty, we appreciated their advice about getting around the city. It was a lifesaver to have coffee in the hallway and to be able to book an airport shuttle through them. It's in a central area of town with nice, modern decor and a few conveniences that made the experience better. I was also happy to see a few eco-friendly touches.
No major issues. The shower room could have been maintained more frequently but it was still fine, and the underbid storage was a little noisy - but at least this set your mind at ease if you forgot a padlock! Now that I've visited this isn't my favourite area of the city, but for a first time visit it's quite convenient.
Excellent staff. Very central location, so is close to downtown points of interest, be it shopping (Union Square), transport (BART/Muni), or museums (e.g. SFMoMA). Hostel-designed beds with power sockets per bed. Windows (which can be opened) to the outside in I think every room. Sturdy and comfortable beds. The kitchen seemed very usable, complete with pots, pans, cookery and cutlery. Reliable wifi. Everything is clean. And free breakfast.
The lack of a hand-washing basin in public areas? Most bathrooms, toilets, and basins are within each room, and the toilets in the hallway only have tiny sinks on top of the toilet water tank. I had a hard time brushing my teeth late at night without disturbing my roommates. Also, since the hostel location is so central, you get a taste of the San Francisco filled with homeless people, lots of rubbish bins and such when it gets dark.
