Positive Reviews

An optional location.

Due to Youth Hostel Central's location in San Francisco, nearly every major attraction can be reached either by foot or bus. Numerous guests were pleased with the ease of travel and exploration due to its placement.

Surprisingly outfitted.

Although the hostel prides itself on being a cheap and budget-focused option for lodging, it also provides a number of amenities and extra services that you may not anticipate, such as a fridge and cable-ready television. You'll be able to recuperate with the same luxuries as a larger or more expensive hotel.

A consistently clean stay.

Most guests found their rooms to be adequately clean and well-maintained, which can be difficult to find in a hostel complex. The staff is diligent about stocking all necessary toiletries and ensuring that your stay is as hygienic as possible.

Negative Reviews

Shared bathing experiences.

Multiple guests were let down by the shared bathrooms, which they found to be too cramped, loud, or unclean, considering the state of their room. You may wish to seek out alternative lodging if you're unaccustomed to a shared bathroom layout, or desire more privacy.

Questionable nightlife.

While the hostel itself is safe, you may be concerned with the building's location after dark, since it sits in a populated area with large crowds of people. Several guests felt unsafe due to the crowds, and you may wish to return to the hostel earlier than usual, or take a taxi home instead of walking.

No air-conditioning.

If you're traveling to the city in the summer, consider looking elsewhere for your primary lodging. The hostel does not have fan units, which means that your room might reach soaring temperatures during the day.
