I thought the hostel was way prettier than in the photos! That Fire Place and piano in the lounge area was just amazing. Perfect to chill out or meet with your new friends. Staff can be a little bit less chatty while on duty (we could hear them chit chat gossip). The Location of the hostel is actually great, with a lot to do around during the day and see the city at night! Don't let those woods and hill scare you (I wish I knew that). Definitely recommend this hostel!

Está ubicado en una zona muy descampada y de noche es medio peligroso para andar caminando.

Still good, but not as good as in times past.....with the changing of breakfast downstairs, the quality is a lot less, but still the fresh OJ is nice, and basics, break, banana, or apple, coffee, oatmeal , etc. I just see the SF area in general to do down hills and the FT Mason area is no execption, however, it' s a world away from downtown and all the feces and garbage down there.....I have hance switched to Sacramento mansion HI Hostel which is far superior and close to the train station, cheaper, safer and still neat...and you can take the train into the city and just come back, or better yet go to Marine Headlands across the Golden Gate Bridge, no one knows about that one and it's like deluxe camping.....just take your bike or take the bus in the weekends to avoid the $7 bridge toll
