Lonely Planet review
A converted seven-story, 1920s apartment building, this better-than-average hostel has private baths in all rooms, including dorms. All-you-can-eat pancakes or eggs cost $1. The neighborhood, on the edge of the gritty Tenderloin, is sketchy but nearby are good bars and cheap eats.
Our independent authors have visited HI San Francisco City Center and selected this as one of our recommended hostels in Downtown & Civic Center.
