This place is located on the edge of the tenderloin, but its still very safe. The hostel is real easy to get to from the bart station(powell street). If you are a shopper then you will like the location because you are a short walk to union square the high end shopping area of downtown san francisco. Also plenty of bus stops leave from here. If you are into nightlife its easy to get to around here. The only issue with this place is the outside street noise is constant, but there are free earplugs provided at the front desk.
