Excellent location, close to the bay.Very efficient and friendly staff. Just a 10 minute bus ride to Pier 39. My only complaint was the loud music from a nearby night club, playing through out the night.

You get what you pay for.I understand how a hostel works, so this is not so much a complaint against the facility as it s a complaint against the other guests.
