The day staying in the Amsterdam Hostel”

This is the day I stay in the Amsterdam Hostel, and I am glad to have the chance to stay in this hostel. When arriving in the hostel, I was asked by Amsterdam staff at the front desk saying that "May I have your id?" That 's the most memorable part I remembered in my trip. I have to admitted that staying in a 4 bed room makes me a little uncomfortable; however, I am very happy to have a chance to stay with a Russian and some other tourists from all over the world. That is the most unforgettable part when staying in the San Francisco. Meanwhile, this is the last day I stayed in the Amsterdam Hostel, so I have to cherish this opportunity very much. To be honest, this is one of the most valuable hostel I lived in the San Francisco, and I am very happy I can stay. Last, I think why this hostel is called "Amsterdam Hostel" since the manager here is an European, and that is why this hostel is called "Amsterdam Hostel".

charming SF-gritty ”

The shower was warm and the beds were clean. The kitchen was big and spacious but crowded for breakfast. It had dated decor and carpet wore down and repaired with duct tape in some spots (but I will take that any day for a decent price, not a problem); metal bunk beds that look like they have seen several decades but do the job, yet somehow all of these elements combined to make you feel like you may be in some cheap hostel in Amsterdam, somehow (never been but I imagine so) . If you are curious what this old city SF buildings look like on the inside, (windows that face dusty brick buildings) this could be a good lil stop. Neat experience.

Strategic location for budget travel in the city”

The hotel is strategically located in the town centre. It’s value for money if you are on budget. There’s a private room with own toilet and dometery that you have to share toilet with others. Laundry service is provided with $3.50 consider bargain rate compare to the city. There are common room for internet and tv room. You will have to cook your own breakfast, pancake mix, coffee and tea is provided. The kitchen is open for use, so you can cook your meal throughout the day. If you rent a car, you will have to pay the city parking rate, which will be higher then the car rental.

I had an enjoyable stay at the Monarch. There were a lot of other europeans there and it was nice to chct with them. The lobby downstairs was really nice and cozy and I enjoyed having my morning coffee downstairs in the lounge section of the lobby conversing with other guests. My only complaint was that the hotel was not equipped with the best Wi-fi, some guests reported that it only worked in the lobby for them. Both managers were absolutely great and had perfect customer service skills. Locution is very good.

If you are looking for something cheap”

If you are looking for something cheap with convenient location, it is your choice if you can bare belows, Everything was just acceptable , too noisy at until 12:30 which you need to wear earplugs if you sleep early. It is good to have restroom and shower in your room, but the shower is hard to control the hot and cold water & the pressure is too weak for runing out water , I could’t get my hair all wet. You need to carry your luggage to max 2 floors, the way to hotel has a few slopes, it would be a hard work with your luggage. Incl breakfast - pan cake /tea /coffee, pan cake have to be cook by yourself and many ppl was waiting for cooking after 9:00am.

My first time traveling without my kids! I was in a dorm, it was clean and quiet and I slept like a log. Free breakfast and tea and coffee all day. Use of a shared kitchen was excellent, as America is EXPENSIVE! So made it doable. A Laundry downstairs and a tv room and wifi! I walked everywhere! So great! And made me feel like I was back in India with the lovely staff. Danyavad!

Acceptable”

Very moldy restrooms. and very dusty/mildew baseboards. The draps were torn ridden - like they have not been replaced in years !!! The bed linens were very flimsy and thin. The trash bins in the kitchen were next to the stove/oven - very unsanitary !!! Very dark in the lounge area. Construction dust everywhere as they are in the midst of remodelling. The kitchen sink is always clogged with foodstuffs. They could easily afford to IKEA - up the place with all of the money they take in from the tourist. They require a $10.00 cash deposit / hold for their electronic key card - which you have return if you do not lose a/o break it. The carpeting is very old and smelly - barely held together by industrial tape. Maybe it will take a year or two to upgrade the facility. Teh name "Amsterdam Hotel" is misguiding - nothing European about this place at all !! Staff could be a bit more friendlier. Definitely not going back to this locale.

It's kinda cheap tho”

The reception staff was kind, but she forgot to gave me a towel and bed sheets (when I check-out another guy told me have to return them, then I knew they offer a towel.) Complimentary coffee, tea, pancakes are offered (they offer pancake dough so you should cook pancakes by yourself). The building is classic but clean, good atmosphere. They also have terrace, baggage cloak room, dinning room, laundry. Bathroom is located inside of each rooms. So in the morning rush, you may have to wait take a shower or washroom. It's little far from bart and muni station (about 10 minutes walking distance). So when you go to the hostel from, or go to SFO, you may expect extra time. (And you may know there are many slopes in SF, kinda tough way with large baggage. In the neighborhood, there are some dinners, bars, drugstores, so it's convenient when you hangout.

This has got to be the worst ever hostel that I’ve stayed. Was in fact trying out my stay here having stayed in many HI NZ & USA HOSTELLING. Was truly disappointed by the condition of the hostel! Furnished with torn and worn out furniture (especially the sofa in TV room, pieces of torn PU leather hanging on the seats (yaks!) and dining chairs too. A small Kitchen with dim light (yup only 1 light!) you can only get a bit more light from opened backyard door and there’s no place for you to cut your meat/veggies or prepare your meals! Beds and bathroom are not cleaned upon check out unless you asked for it if you remained in the room. Dirty place, avoid it. The Indian staffs at the reception are young, inexperienced and rude to several visitors too.
