New but dirty”

Nick was nice guy but sometimes just wired/ unfriendly. Room was big enough for 6 people but few power outlets.. Pretty smelly and dirty. Just like the bathroom.. After 5 minutes of showering you halfway flooded the shower because the water isn't going through the sink... Toilets and floor was dirty... Fridge full of shit which was never moved during the time I was there.. Trash not emptied, often no Toilet paper, dirtzy mattress and covers... Not a place you want to stay for longer...

Our apologies that your stay did not go as planned. We replace toilet paper in our 3 bathrooms on each floor we have frequently and there may be a few minutes when it runs out and we are working on it. We have cleaning staff who clean several times a day. We do keep our hostel safe and secure at all times. Your room was fully inspected prior to check in and everything was in good condition. We had pest control inspect your room and they did not find anything. We are a hostel with shared facilities and at times it can get a bit untidy and we do our best cleaning multiple times a day. We will be more aware in the future.

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.

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.
