I stayed there for three nights in December 2013 in a mixed 6 bedroom dorm. Everything was very clean, including the bathrooms/showers on all the floors - the curtains for the bunk beds were also great for providing some extra privacy, especially if you hate having to always go to the bathroom to change! Breakfast was great value - lots of different kinds of breads (bagels, wholemeal/white slices, raisin toast, english muffins) and spreads as well + pretty tasty oatmeal and small bowls of fresh fruit. Their weekly nights are great for meeting people - I was travelling solo and everyone was very friendly both in the dorms and for their special events.

Some hostel staff were warmer than others but would give you useful advice when asked. One of the showers on the top floor is pretty tragic but everything else was fine. Would advise to not walk down Taylor St on your own as you walk straight into Tenderloin (dodgier part of town) but you can easily get around it to get where you need to go.

Thank you, Tracey! Good to hear that you enjoyed your stay. We do pride ourselves on the unique bunk beds with privacy, a variety of free weekly activities, and of course, the best free breakfast in San Francisco! Come back and see us the next time you are in the Bay!

This is my secondary location if i cannot book in the hi san francisco hostel near union square. Its just a little more inconvenient to walk to from the powell bart station. The hostel is located near the theatre district of san francisco. I guess the issue I have with this place is that as a single traveler i've had to switch rooms a few times to accommodate larger parties. I will say that the location is much quieter then the hi san francisco if you value your sleep.

I visit this place last month and I really loved it!!! It is a beautiful place, very clean, nice rooms and lovely staff! Many thanks to Patrick, the owner. A really intelligent and warm person. He's doing everything for all the guests and made me feel at home from the beginning. I spend time with lots of different people, lots of different cultures, what I highly enjoyed. Thanks to everybody, specially Patrick. Maria Annuziata Porlisi, Stefania's mother.

Thank you, Maria! We’re glad you had a positive experience- Patrick (along with the rest of the staff) certainly does work hard around the clock to make sure that the Adelaide is a “home away from home” for guests! We hope to see you again the next time you are in San Francisco!

We stayed in this place in late November 2013.
It was pretty easy to get here (BART train from airport followed by short walk from Powell station). When here, we were told that we would be in their sister hotel next door called hotel Fitzgerald.
It was a clean and comfortable place, basic amenities like tea and coffee (good coffee!) were available in the room. They also had excellent free wifi as well as free breakfast every morning which was a huge bonus at the hostel rates. Reception staff were helpful, a number of travel brochures were available at the desk, and you could use further kitchen/hostel facilities at the Adelaide hostel.
Very close to union square and there were a number of cafes and restaurants at walking distance. We were told the bar downstairs called barrel room had great wine but unfortunately we didn't get around to trying it!
Overall, this place is very good value for money and we would definitely recommend it to anybody travelling on a budget.

Thank you! We’re glad you found the Fitzgerald clean and comfortable- hopefully you’ll come see us again, and try out the wine at the Barrel Room!

the room was not clean at all very small for six bad and smells , the front disk not friendly at all and the breakfast is pof they were running renovation in the next room so horrible noise and the rooms looks nothing like the picture. the only good thing is the location but again you can find a much better hostel with the same price right in the corner
honest advice go somewhere else
