Green Tortoise Hostels have been the favorite of backpackers and travelers for decades. From our unbeatable location in historic North Beach* (a few steps to tourist favorites like Chinatown, Little Italy and a quick walk to Fisherman's Wharf), to our comfortable dorm rooms and cozy private rooms, to our free meals, and famous pub crawls, to our famous Adventure Travel tours...these are just a few of the reasons the Tortoise has become a legend.
*Some colorful adult entertainment clubs are located in our vicinity, also a busy & noisy area on the weekends and in peak season from clubs on the street.

If you're looking for a sterile, dull hostel that you can forget about the moment you leave San Francisco, the Tortoise isn't it. Time after time, our guests tell us that their favorite memories of San Francisco are of the times they spent in the hostel itself, meeting and hanging out with other backpackers, enjoying nights in our ballroom, making friends while enjoying our free dinners (3 times a week), or dancing in the ballroom until all hours. If the sun comes up before you've gone to bed, you know you've had a good night at the Green Tortoise.

To make it like your home, there's no curfew, huge kitchen, giant common room with a pool table and foosball, piano, stereo, bicycle rack and quiet places to fill in the journals of your travels. The rooms are all non-smoking with large lockers under the bed to store your gear safely, comfortable beds with reading lights & 4 individual outlets per bunk, and new friends to meet. Our private rooms give you a real home away from home feel with comfy beds so you can chill out and have quiet time with your travel mate.

Latest Review

" Definitely had a very strong backpacker vibes. Free breakfast and juice was nice as well. The hostel itself looks quite old and my room had a sort of funky smell to it. Overall a pleasant stay but I was not in the hostel very much but it should be a good place to meet other travelers but I would recommend HI-Downtown over this hostel. "
