Homey & Helpful ... As a 40 something with mobility limitations traveling on my own for the first time in many years this was a wonderful spot to rest for a couple of days. The staff were very helpful both with helping me manage the stairs and in directing my adventures in town ...

Description - Hostel

Welcome to the smallest of the San Francisco hostels! We may be little, but we’ve got huge personality. Our space is all about creating community with fascinating travelers from around the world. Looking for instant friendships and awesome vibes? You found us, high five! We believe hostels are far more than just a cheap place to stay, and we are seeking out guests who feel the same.

We are a hostel specifically designed for social, friendly backpackers, world travelers, & wanderlust seekers. We are sanctioned by the San Francisco planning commission to provide tourist accommodation and have been a top rated hostel for 25 years! We offer mixed gender dorms, clean bathrooms, fully stocked kitchen, and a common room full of new friends in downtown SF. Come join us!

Our accommodation is all mixed gender dorm rooms with 6 or 8 beds per room, bunk bed style, with large lockers underneath each bed. We also have a fully stocked kitchen, clean bathrooms, and cozy common room to hang out. It’s a very open, communal set up, with new international friends all around you. Like summer camp, but even better... because you're an adult now ;-)
