    Super nice!”

    This is the best hostel that I've ever lived! I don't know what to say but wow, wow, and wow! Scenery around this hostel is super amazing. It's about 40 to 50 minutes driving to downtown San Fransisco, and also the same time driving to San Jose. Strongly recommend this hostel to everyone who wants travel in San Fransisco!

    The hostel was very good. The location close to Montara beach had given us to go to the beach frequently. The room was clean and the facilities were good as well. Only one thing, hope the hostel could provide a hair dryer. The others were satisfied.

    Buses sort of end early if you're caught out late. The place itself has amazing views, but is pretty out of the way. Maybe two bathrooms aren't enough...

    綺麗なホテル”

    ルームキーがカードキーになっている。海がすぐそこにあり、近くにビーチもある。wifiが比較的高速。

    西海岸に面しており過ごしやすい綺麗なホテル。だが、交通の便は悪く、交通機関はバスぐらいしかない。サンフランシスコまで行く場合は複数のバス、電車を乗り継ぐ必要があるため、車で来たほうがいい。駐車スペースは十分にある。 ドミトリーだが、旅人同士の交流は少なく、どちらかと言うと家族や友達同士での利用が多い印象だった。
