Guest reviews for Amsterdam Hostel

5 out of 5

Exceeded my expectations of hostel living.

Pros: Helpful staff and quiet, low-key occupants. The neighborhood was quiet but not isolated. It was an easy walk to my Financial District destination.
Cons: nightlights for the multi-person rooms?
Location: Easy walk to Financial District (not such a steep hill up Sutter!), to Chinatown, and I saw multiple transit stations and bikeshare stops nearby
I was in SF for a pricey yoga conference, which suggested staying in their $212 luxury rooms. I decided to take a chance and find out if I was too old to still enjoy hostel living. It was much nicer than I expected! Yes, small, and teeming with students and young travelers, but they were quiet and unobtrusive. Anket, who checked me in at the front desk, was lovely: cordial and quite helpful (and someone was at desk 24 hours). I stayed in a dorm with 3 strangers (2 bunk beds), who happened to be quiet & respectful around our opposite schedules. The room was locked so I felt safe leaving my luggage there while gone all day. A full bath was right in our dorm room. Everything was clean, just predictably musty. Sheets, blanket, & towel were provided, but I was grateful to have my own pillowcase. If I had the time & foresight, I would've availed myself of the large kitchen and their laundry room. The only light in the room was an overhead, but luckily I had an eyemask to fall asleep before roomies were in bed; wish I had a nightlight or flashlight for morning fumbling. Walls were thin and I was frequently awakened by talking outside the room & kitchen activity-- next time, ear plugs. Plenty of diners and convenience stores in the vicinity. For the price, I was delighted for this safe spot to lay my head, which was all i really needed.

Correctly-priced hostel

It's not expensive, like about everything else in San Francisco. It was clean, the beds were comfortable enough for a couple of nights, and the wifi worked. What else do you need?
