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

We are a small, friendly and social hostel that feels more like a family than just a cheap place to stay. Because we are small, we say "There are no strangers here, only friends you haven't met!"

From the moment you step inside, you'll see what we mean. For adventurous and open-minded travelers, we are a San Francisco experience you won't want to miss. We also have an updated social calendar for every day of the week to encourage our staff and guests to spend time together and enjoy the beautiful city of San Francisco.

We offer more free stuff than you'll ever find in any other hostel, including free coffee, tea, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, ramen, towels, and sock wash! We hope to see you soon!

Booking and cancellation policy

Unless otherwise specified, booking payments are non-refundable.

We have a 48-hour cancellation policy. However, we will not charge for late cancellations if we are able to sell the canceled beds to other travelers. If a guest cancels less than 48 hours before midnight on their arrival date, they will be charged for the first night of their reservation.

Guests who have canceled their reservation less than 48 hours before the arrival date may ask the manager about a cancellation policy exception the day after the reservation arrival date.

No-shows without communication from the guest are charged a minimum charge for the first night for each guest in the reservation. No-communication no-shows are charged a maximum of two nights if the reservation was for more than two nights.

We are a small hostel with limited staff, so we CANNOT provide regular check-in after midnight! We know flights get delayed and all sorts of things can happen when you are traveling. If you are arriving in the later afternoon or evening, consider a hostel with 24 hour reception for the night of your arrival. If you realize you will be arriving later than midnight, please contact us by telephone by 5 PM to see if we have someone to let you in after midnight for a $15 late check-in fee. Thank you for understanding!!

How to get there

SFO airport is located 14 miles south of San Francisco, so once your flight arrives you'll still have the last little leg of your journey to complete. The San Francisco Airport is modern and easy to navigate, so you shouldn't have any problems getting where you need to be. It's served by a variety of forms of public transportation so it's up to you (and your budget!) how you'd like to get to the city - and to us! Perhaps the easiest way is to take the BART (Bay Area Rapid Transit) subway directly from the airport. You can also hire a shared door to door shuttle service.
