Possible paradise, if the owner invest on improvements. So that the shower curtain wouldn't suddenly drop & scare or humiliate you. By the way, is there a trick to close the toilet door without touching the toilet? I guess being close to the water creates the mildew air in the bedroom that cannot be helped. This place has a lot of great amenities to offer and should not be allow to deteriorate. I just keep thinking that I would love to buy this place if I was a millionaire someday.

Sorry not to be of more help, but I have no suggestions for improvement. All I can say is please keep doing what you are doing! You are one of my very favorite places on the planet. Oh...and also...my boyfriend had an emergency dental issue and my being from out of the area I didn't know which dentists were close by. You kind people at the front desk gave me a list of dentists to call after spending your time to look them up. Above and beyond. Thank you huge!

It was great. Because I was in San Francisco for family as opposed to vacation, I only participated in one hostel sponsored activity. I enjoyed that activity and enjoyed having options available even if I was unable to participate. I especially loved the fireplace and only regret that it was not operating every night.

The Fort Mason Hostel is my favorite for the location, the views, the history and the beauty. Old San Francisco architecture, peace, quiet and excellent walks from this sweet place.
