Don't take OUR word for it...

"We had a WONDERFUL time staying at HI SF City Center. It was more than we expected or hoped for. Thank you for making our stay so enjoyable, we all really appreciate it."
--Shannon G., University of Illinois

--Oliver S., Lambda Youth Network

"The rangers left San Francisco on Monday morning, after three nights at HI SF Fisherman's Wharf and two nights at HI SF City Center. They had a great time, I must tell you, since I was the person in charge, driver, guide, cook. I was very impressed with the way the hostel is managed, all the personnel at the front desk were very nice and helpful, some of them were very excited that they were able to practice their Spanish. The rooms and bathrooms were clean. I was very happy and I will use your facilities again in the future."
--Marcelo D., CONAF: Chile National Park Rangers

"Thanks so much to all of you. We found the HI SF City Center Hostel to be a wonderful place for our group. We hope to see you again."
--Susan, Baypeace

"We loved spending the evening, night, and breakfast hours the next a.m. at your fabulous youth hostel.  My 15 8th graders and the four of us adults were quite comfortable in your clean rooms with baths.  We saw many interesting people while there, rested well, and especially enjoyed learning about the history of tea from your fellow with the Mohawk (can't say that I caught his name); we were most impressed, and inspired to go back to Chinatown for some tea.  I was glad we were able to manage cooking our own breakfast, whilst working around others who needed the kitchen at that time as well.  I (and my students) were happy enough to rave about your hostel to our friends and relations!  Great staff too -- we felt safe and cared about! Thank you again."
-- Pat C., Camellia Waldorf School

"Everything was perfect again, accommodation, service, staff, weather. We'll be back in two years time, and maybe stay another night."
