The bed was really comfortable.
The room was really hot and it took a while for it to cool down.

It was a cute place...clean and friendly staff.
The property was fine, just a little away from what I was doing...but I would stay there again!

We liked the location in a safe neighborhood, accessibility with public transport, and trader Joe's and CVS across the road. The room was big and we had a fridge as well as a microwave. The shared bathrooms were always clean.
The location of the hostel means that it's very loud (cable cars), so it was hard to sleep because of the noises.
