A friend and I went to spend three days in San Francisco and this hostel was a hit and ahd charm that a normal hotel can not offer ... I noticed that there weren't any people over 35 years old, but that's part of the reason why we liked. The rooms are basic, but that's ok because we were only there to sleep. We spent the rest of the day visiting the city and when night arrives, you can meet people with similar interests with whom you can share your experiences. You enter that small community of young travelers when you participate in the first dinner (free on Tuesdays) or in your first Beer Olympics (which, oddly enough, was won by a German girl and a Frenchman!).
