I stayed here for a few nights. Interesting location - close to everything, but in a neighbourhood that one would rather avoid at night. The rooms are simple but very clean. The staff is very nice. Breakfast can be skipped. I'll return next time I am in SF.

** Location** This hostel is in a really good location – only a couple of blocks from the Powell St Cable Car Turnaround, with Westfield SFC also immediately there, and the Parc55 (a common pick-up location for tour buses) only a block and a half away. Being so close to Market St also means that you are within a 5... More

This hostel is located in a very old building will all communications right above the head (water pipes, power lines). Although perfectly located, noise from O'Farrel street is really disturbing - forget about comfortable sleep. Crazy SF homeless people scream all night, so just have two earplugs in each ear. Finally, breakfast is truly weak. Better reserve without breakfast probably... More

Orange Village Hostel was the second Hostel I stayed at in my time in the US. The atmosphere and events the Hostel offered were awesome and the breakfast in the morning was amazing. The beds were super comfy and clean. However if you're staying in this hostel I recommend bringing your own towel as the towels they offer are pretty... More

Love the stay, I stayed in female dorm with private bathroom. Breakfast provided and the pantry space is allowed for cooking your own meal too. My roommates are 3 ladies from Barcelona and we shared our sightseeing plan every night, we even hung out in the bar at night.

Good choice if you consider the average price of a room in SF. Breakfast. Ok Location. Strategic area. Safe enough (there are some homeless in the surroundings but I have never been bothered by any of them) Internet. Ok Reception. The personel is ok ... except for the chinese lady (the manager?!). Room. Really basic. Guess they clean them only... More

It was really good experience staying Orange Village. First of all, I didn't expect that much since some people mentioned that its' just old building accommodation. Yes, I agree. However, Once I put my feet into the building, it changed everything. The staff was welcoming me and even helped me early check-in, if not they could've kept my luggage. And... More

It is really hard to find affordable accommodation in San Francisco. We stayed here for a total of 4 nights on two separate occasions and found the location great. A quick walk to the BART and close to Union Square. The private rooms are clean and comfortable. Breakfast is one of the best we have had, and included in the... More
