    good choice for the cost-conscious”

    close proximity to the BART station and bus stops, low price, quick check in/out

    For the budget-conscious, the European Hostel is a good choice, though I have yet to stay in other hostels in the city. However, the private room was sorely lacking in space, with barely enough room to manoeuvre after laying down a large suitcase. That said, the double bed was comfortable enough. Being an early riser, I didn't encounter much waiting to use the shared bathrooms. The bathrooms are also cleaned daily, though there is a lingering bad smell in some of them. Didn't use the kitchen facilities, and didn't have to interact with the staff much at all. Though there are many homeless people in the area, I didn't encounter any issues despite walking back alone after midnight, for up to 30 minutes each time. Checked in after 10pm, and out before 10am, and both times the process was quick and efficient.

    Decent hostel to stay with cheap price”

    I was a bit nervous when booking the hostel with such bad rating. But it was acceptable when I came in, not extremely bad as I thought. With this price, no other places can beat it.

    Location

    It's a basic hostel but nice enough. Good location for buses and walking. It's down a side street so it isn't noisy and it's away from the main homeless area. Has a kitchen so can cook. Good wifi connection

    you have to remember about your deposit yourself”

    i did early checkout and gave my key to the frontdesk but they didn't notice me to take $10 key deposit until i leave there i think returning deposit by themselves is a mandatory of the hostel even if travelers don't request it in advance

    Not Bad”

    Nice view from the fourth floor

    The mattress was a little deformed causing us to roll to the middle of the bed but I can't say it was a bad experience overall. The area was not great but I didn't feel unsafe. Also being near Mission District is a plus if you like to party.

    Worst hostel I have ever been in”

    This place is simply horrible. The cleaning service is not even trying to pretend they would care about the cleanliness. Rooms, bathrooms and kitchen are just disgusting. Courtesy and hospitality is not something you can expect there. You probably will be woken up by the cleaning lady that opens the door in the morning, turns on the light and her vaccum cleaner and moves it back and forth two times, that's what they call cleaning and courtesy there. Furthermore the wifi is either not working or really slow, not enough lockers and no proper common area. At last be aware of some people in that place. Expect to see insane people, peope on drugs or both, wandering around, talking to themselves for hours and sleeping in the hallways. Don't ever book this place spend 20$ more on a decent hostel.

    The bed was acceptable.

    Sharing a bathroom is a problem when there are 50 people who depend on it. Parking is a problem - better come without a car! Rooms are really small.
