What Other Travelers Are Saying

It was a great stay. Security was a key part in what made this a great hostel. Location was also great with easy access to a lot of different places. Would stay again.”



Hi San Francisco Hostel is a great place that strictly follows the COVID 19 cleanliness protocol. Staff is super friendly and one gets great place to stay right in the middle of downtown. Would definitely stay here again”



Our 6th grade field trip, with 55 students and 24 adults from Sacramento, CA, had the best time at this hostel. The staff is calm and accommodating, the rooms and hallways are squeaky clean, the location CANNOT be beat: be prepared for a wonderful stay!”
