Great value”
Central location. Very close to metro and Bart. Food and shopping all around. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. They let me check in a bit early. The rooms were clean and I love the idea of saving water and making less waste. Breakfast was basic and filling. I love this place and will stay in the future.

Q room is overpriced”
I could have stayed less than a block away at the Hilton Union Square if I knew what I was being charged. There is a noise curfew of midnight, so if you need to get to sleep before then, you may need to ask someone on their cell on the bench outside your BR "would you please move somewhere else? I can hear every thing you say through the wall to my BR. I went to take a shower, thinking you may be done with the call, but I really need to get to bed now (11:15pm). The staff are very friendly. I could have sworn my booking was for $55. I got there & was told it was about twice that much per night. My bad, just don't know where on the travel app & I got it wrong. Self serve breakfast it a variety of bread, which one can toast. Day old tasting bagels. a huge bowl of PB & 1 of jam; bowl of cream cheese; coffee & tea. Refrigerator for storing your own bought food. Great living room for socializing, watching movies, etc. & separate movie "theater" that I didn't enter. Clean & beautiful

Very good”
Pros: - Good to have a resting area for the guests. Con: -please change your desktop, it is tooo slow. - Elavator is inconvenient. Firstly It is not go by sequence, it will causing more people for waiting. Secondly the elevator is uneven with the floor. It is very dangerous for the elderly or handicap person. I don’t wish to see anything happened in future. Safety is very important, please take note. Security: asking administrators to check the access pass is a bad idea. Firstly Administrators can not focus on their work, it will make the process go slower. Question for you: Does the administratior check 100% of every single guest? Answer is No. As a guest I don’t feel secure it is just acting a Hollywood shows to the guest. Some guest feel very frastraighter annoying, they have already walk up the stairs and from that distance you will raise up the voice and ask the guest to show pass. If you hire a security guard standing infornt, things will be chnge.

For the money spend, better stay somewhare else”
Paid 200$ a night for a private room . During over a week stay they never change a bed sheet. Also no daily room makeup but every 2-3days instead . Early summer weather in SF means sleeping with windows open (no fan)so its VERY loud and you won't sleep without using ear plugs. Bathroom is small, hot water works fine but water drainage is bad. Lift works most if the time but 50% I end up using stairs since lift wont stop when ppl are already in it. Wifi is so poor I can't believe internet in SF downtown can be this slow. Breakfast is ok if you like toast and jam but kitchen is too small. I stayed in more than 30 hostels around the world, some are good and bad but not a single one makes me feel its overated especially for the price paid. Over all not impressed.

Disappointing”
Me and 2 other girls chose to stay at HI Downtown SF because it had a very high rating. However, the experince we encountered was very very disappointing. First of all, we were surprised when informed that the elevator was broken. Then when we checked in to the room, the bunk bed was not properly made, because the top bed was not covered by sheet at all. On the 2nd night, only the bottom bed was made (again) leaving the top bed scattered, and the 3rd night was the worst because all our beds were not made AT ALL!! This was like a bad joke for us. The heater didn't work properly & left us freezing every night. Not to mention the shower/toilet area which are very dirty, stinky & wet all the time. Most of the staffs were not friendly. There was one time when we got back to the hostel, the male staff rudely asked for our cards. We were so shocked because he should've been more polite to guests. Honestly, the only good thing about this hostel were the strategic location & high speed wifi.
