    Great hostel, very organized and clean, staff very friendly and a big common room/kitchen to meet people. Location is excellent, close to many bars and restaurants, easy access to transportation. Only thing could be better would be to have more toilets/showers in the top floors.

    North Beach / Telegraph Hill
    The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
    of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
    ristorante come together to create the charming
    neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
    grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
    North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
    suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
    the city exude as much European charm and style.
