During COVID-19 we require good communication in advance of your visit so we learn more about your specific travel situation. Our goal is to keep our guests and our housemates safe and prevent the spread!

We're typically a very social hostel, but due to COVID-19 we have had to cut back on our social events. We are asking guests to practice social distancing by keeping 6ft distance from one another and wearing a mask in our common spaces!

The space
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! We believe hostels are far more than just a cheap place to stay, and we are seeking out guests who feel the same.

Our accommodation is typically mixed gender dorm rooms with 6 or 8 beds per room, bunk bed style, with large lockers underneath each bed. During this time, we are spacing guests out so they can have dorm rooms to themselves. As restrictions change, we are too! So this could change for reservations that are made for the future. Feel free to check in with us about this if you have any concerns.

We also have a fully stocked kitchen, clean bathrooms, and cozy common room to hang out. We are currently asking guests to keep their distance from one another and wear masks as well!

We have free coffee and tea available for our guests and you are more than welcome to use our kitchen! We just ask that one person is in there at a time.

Freebies don’t stop there, check these out too:
Free fluffy towels
Free high speed wifi & guest computer
Free earplugs
Free luggage storage day of check in/out
Free hairdryers & straighteners
Free printing of boarding passes to new adventures

Our central location between Chinatown and the Financial District is fantastic, public transport is plentiful, and vibrant North Beach bars are stumbling distance away.

As fellow international travelers, this place is more than a hostel to us; it is our home. We are very social and personable here, and want to know about you when you contact us. So, what brings you to SF and to our hostel?

San Francisco, California, United States

Our location can't be beat! We are located one block over from the famous San Francisco Chinatown, one block from the bustling Financial District, a few blocks south of "Little Italy" in North Beach, and just a 10 minute stroll from the water along the Embarcadero.
