Set in a 1920’s boutique hotel, San Francisco City Center Hostel has a vintage feel with bags of charm and character. Off the beaten tourist path but still close to it all, the hostel is between the edgy Tenderloin district and the clean marble columns of the Civic Center; a neighbourhood with some of the best cheap cuisine, great nightclubs and music venues.
This stylish hostel offers shared dorms and private rooms, all with en-suite bathrooms. The on-site cafe, Ivy's Place, serves free breakfast as well as $1 all-you-can-eat pancakes or eggs; in the evenings there’s beer, wine and snacks. Connect to the free Wi-Fi in the marble-tiled lobby, or relax in a common room on the mahogany-railed mezzanine.
San Francisco City Center Hostel organises free and cheap activities for guests including pub crawls, walking tours, museum visits and day trips to places like Muir Woods, wine country, or Yosemite.
What travellers think
I like that the rooms and bathrooms are clean and the windows are large. But I would like to see bigger lockers, a chair or two, A/C, heat, and more outlets for the rooms.

I think the hostel was great and the interior design was pretty The cleanliness was second to none considering it is a old building. I wasn't expecting the area to be so harsh but this is not an issue for HI.
