Thanks for taking the time to leave us a review!
I'm glad to hear you were happy with the accommodation, especially our lovely guests and helpful staff!
I know our neighborhood can seem pretty intense, especially when guests first arrive. While their is a big issue with homelessness on the West Coast, and especially in San Francisco, the vital services that are provided to those in need in our city, are largely concentrated in the area nearby to our hostel. This means a lot of people on the street a lot of the time.
While the area can be overwhelming, there is a lot of good work going on here, and of course some of the best food, nightlife, art galleries, and volunteer opportunities in the entire city. Next time you stay stop by the desk and we'd be happy to make recommendations about anything you might be interested in!
我们八月份在HI City Center旅社住了3晚。总的来说，我们对这次旅行非常满意。带私人浴室的两张床的房间非常干净宽敞。此外，我们对宿舍的低噪音水平感到非常惊喜。早餐很简单，但很好。酒店的氛围非常友好，提供了共享的位置，如酒吧和休息区，非常舒适。唯一不好的地方是这个街区，住在街上的人非常多。虽然我们个人没有遇到任何事故，而且人们一般都很友好，但我们确实观察到了一些警察在附近活动。旅舍距离联合广场步行约12分钟。HI Downtown hostel应该是一个不错的替代之选，因为它位于联合广场附近，在一个更好的社区。
Thanks for staying and for taking the time to leave us this great review!
I'm glad you enjoyed our amenities, especially our very lovely (and very inexpensive!) little bar, as well as our great breakfast (did you get the chance to take advantage of our $1 pancakes and eggs addition?? I hope so! It's such a great deal!). We also offer lots of great activities inside the hostel and in our surrounding neighborhoods. They are a great way to get to know our eclectic and ever changing city, and to make some new friends... what hostelling is all about!
Wishing you happy travels and hoping you'll come back to see us again soon!
Yay! We love our groups just like we love all our guests, but it means so much to us when a group member leaves their own review. Thanks for liking us! We like you too!
Thanks for staying with us, I'm happy to hear the hostel itself was all you were needing with a safe, clean, and easy vibe!
We know our neighborhood is not for everyone, and can be pretty intense to witness some of the suffering that people without homes or help are experiencing. While the entire west coast of the US/Mexico/Canada are experiencing a crisis with homelessness, this area has always been a sanctuary for those in the most need. So, while it can feel quite unsafe to some, we're actually really proud of the unique character of our neighborhood, and especially of all the amazing local nonprofits working tirelessly to support people who otherwise have nothing.
Our staff do their best to offer context about this area to our lovely and varied guests, and are always happy to offer advise about the best ways to get around and optimize a stay in SF. We offer an onsite (and very inexpensive) bar and lots of cool and eclectic activities for our guests, so you can relax after a long day of exploring, and make some new friends so adventuring is that much more fun!
I hope you'll decide to stay with us again, and when you do feel free to check in about some amazing local volunteer opportunities that we're happy to arrange for our guests. Sometimes giving back is a great way to feel more powerful and help you feel more connected to the positive impact that your staying with us has on this dynamic area.
Thanks for staying Raja!
I'm happy you found our hostel to be so well suited to your travel needs! Great guests make for a great hostel, so please come on back to see us again soon!
In the mean time, Happy Travels!
Thanks for staying with us, and for taking some time to give us some feedback. I'm so sorry to hear you didn't find our staff to be engaging or super helpful. We're at the end of a very long summer season and I'm afraid our team must be a little burnt out. We have some plans for staff meetings, trainings, and even some nice old fashioned fun, and I feel optimistic that this time of refreshment will not over improve our moods and guest service, but also help us freshen up the hostel for all to enjoy.
I hope you decide to stay with us again down the road, so we can try again to help you have a really special stay.
