USA Hostels San Francisco

We keep working hard to offer you San Francisco’s most friendly, modern and comfortable hostel and guests have thanked us with awards year after year.

In fact, we were just voted Most Popular San Francisco hostel*, for our third consecutive year!

Being just three blocks from Union Square in the heart of the city, we’re a short walk from Chinatown, Japantown, the historic cable cars and San Francisco’s best shopping. Once you’re done seeing the sites, we’ve comfortable dorms, featuring our custom-designed privacy pods and privates with hotel amenities ready for you to relax. Or you can trade travel stories with new friends in our many social spaces including a large lounge, dining area and kitchen, library and real theatre. We’ve even a yoga studio to stretch those sore muscles! No other hostel in San Francisco offers all this making us the best value in hostel accommodation for backpackers, flashpackers and budget travelers.

There’s plenty to do in this great city…from visiting Alcatraz to the sea lions at Pier 39 to sampling gourmet food at Fisherman’s Wharf. San Francisco also offers great museums, spacious parks and exciting nightlife. Check out our What’s On in San Francisco information below, ActivitiesFacebook or RenRen pages to see what else is happening while you’re in San Francisco!

Please note that our prices do not include taxes. All daily bed rates of $40 or more are taxed at 16.25%. Bed rates under $40 are taxed only 1% tourist tax.
