My fiance and i stayed last year for pride. The clean and friendly environment made our stay very pleasant. Its close to the civic center. And thanks to the location we did not have to use a port-o-potty. Which is why we decided to reserve a room yet again. ;)

Luckily we were planning on staying in this hostel for one night only. When we arrived the first thing I noticed was the smell, like there hadn't been any fresh air for years. We booked a private double room. The room was big enough for the two of us, there was a small desk, mirror and the bed. In here...

Do not stay here. The rooms were so tight, no space to even put a bag. Linen was dirty and already used. There was Broken used syringes out the front of the door. .............................................................................................

Welcome to the place to hide from the thousands of homeless crackheads walking around like zombies in the neighborhood. In this hidden gem you can almost stay safe at while squeezing in with 9 other people in tiny rooms. If you're not scared to avoid showering for days, and have no problem with dirt, bedbugs or toilets that have never...

Do not stay here if you expect to do anything but sleep here. The hostel is located about a half an hour walk from the coast and in an area mainly inhabited by drug dealers and homeless people. The people running the hostel are quite helpful and friendly however. But what they won't do is fix the serious mice problem...

Nothing fancy...a bunk bed in a shared room with bathroom down the hall, and a kitchen/lou ge space donstairs, with a slow but free wifi connection. Rooms are co-ed, so pretty young women might want to beware. It's also in a rough neighborhood. But my fourth floor room was clean and quiet and very cheap, and the young man who...

I stayed here with my husband and some friends at the end of our road trip up the West Coast. We had stayed in many motels and hotels on the way but we ended up at the European Guest House because all other accommodation was booked up. We had all stayed at hostels in the past so we weren't exactly...

To every traveller that wrote a bad review - you are all a bunch of pussies. Scared of a dodgy alleyway? And bad location? Or homeless people? You're in the real world. This hostel was fine. You get what you pay for - More importantly, at the end of each night you have a roof over your head and somewhere...

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
