Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Really nice place! The people here are amazing, coming from all over the world. Clean rooms and bathrooms, plus they offer free breakfast and cool activities every day. The location is just perfect, in the middle of everything. I loved my stay here and will definitely come back!

It was my first time to the bay area. Came into town to see the Grateful Dead. Hostel was in a great location, very accessible, clean comfortable beds, great staff. Had a great stay and really enjoyed my time here. Meet a lot of cool interesting people, and everyone was very kind and delightful.

Passing through SFO, stayed here for the price and location. Pros: Location - financial district but limited food options late nite, friendly staff, clean enough Cons: Located on 4th floor, hot in rooms, windows needed to be open (loud city noises), disruptive hostel mates, Left earlier due to poor sleep and not worth value in the end

Staff was so friendly and welcoming! The facilities were very clean, only the bed sheets did not seem very fresh. The location is good! I would just be careful at night, like everywhere in SF. The rooms seemed a bit stuffed tho cause there were a lot of people in a small space so it's good for one or two nights.

Came here for GDC for a week with a few friends and had a great time. The hostel truly felt like a home, and provided us with boundless comfort after long days at the expo. I'd like to give a shout out to Nikole on staff, who went above and beyond to make sure we had a great time. Would definitely come back here next year for GDC :)

I stayed here for a work trip and to explore the city and couldn't have asked for a better experience! The staff and guests at Tradewinds are beyond amazing and are some of the warmest people I've ever met. The hostel location is perfect and puts you right next to amazing restaurants, fairy to Alcatraz, China town, Union Square, and so much more all in a short walk. Great bars nearby and even a stellar karaoke bar! Highly recommend this hostel!!

Spent seven nights in the only private room (meant for two) in the house. The property is accessible to Chinatown and downtown SF. Basic for sure and the ventilation fan whirs, but the place is never unsafe. While I did not manage to speak to everyone, Nicole, Angelo, and others are personable and make guests feel welcome. There are regular activities like BBQ, taco nights, outings, and more to help you meet everyone. Special shoutout to Sara, who is ever so positive with a smile and got me out of difficult situations multiple times when I locked myself out of the room and dropped my phone into a crevice between my bed and corner of the room!
