Great common areas, very nice rooms
I am going to differentiate between a couple things here: (1) the hostel, (2) the neighbourhood that the hostel is in.
(1) Hostelling International San Francisco-City Centre is a great hostel with great amenities, including an Irish styled bar. Be sure to flash your membership card to get a discounted rate.
(2) It is situated dead smack in the middle of San Francisco's quasi-third world Tenderloin district (see my review of this district).
If you are staying at this hostel you will have to be prepared to take cabs late at night. The surrounding area is crawling with desperate people and it is NOT safe. If you want a great hostel and can handle yourself well, you know, you are 'street wise' then this is your spot for sure. If not, look for something in the safer streets of Chinatown.
TRUST ME. [more ]
