About San Francisco Backpacker Hostel - Pacific Tradewinds

Our hostel is different than most you have likely experienced. We are much more than a cheap place to stay, our house is an extremely social community of travelers.

For some, the journey is more important than the destination and who you meet is more important than what you see. Pacific Tradewinds Backpacker Hostel was created for this type of traveller.

This travelers community is small, welcoming, warm and personal. Guests tell us the feeling here is like visiting friends in a home rather than being impersonal and institutional as some larger city hostels can be.

Because of our small size, guests and staff here really get to know each other. In the hostel, there's a lot of socializing, playing games, music jam sessions, etc. We also frequently go out with the guests to see sights, do pub crawls and other fun stuff.

Our services include most amenities you would have while visiting friends. The focus is less about making money and more about making your stay as comfortable as possible. Our kitchen is modern and fully equipped for making real meals. The bathrooms are bright, clean and private. Beds are made of solid steel (which means no shaking or squeaking) and have large backpack sized lockers underneath.

Finally, the location is great. We are located just 2 blocks from the Downtown Transamerica Pyramid, one block from the Cable Cars, a few blocks from Chinatown and North Beach, and buses to everywhere are just outside our door.

This hostel is primarily popular with 'off-the-beaten-path' backpackers and these are the sort of travelers we love to have. We give priority to our existing guests, so once your here you can usually stay additional nights up to the maximum stay of 14 nights.

** We are a travelers hostel and therefore only serve people who are actively on vacation/holiday. Unfortunately, this means San Francisco bay area residents, or anyone in the 94XXX zipcode, would not be eligible.**

**Reception hours are from 8am until midnight. We do not allow check-ins after midnight.**
