H.I. San Francisco-City Center
The Prohibition-era speakeasy downstairs may not sell moonshine, but we more than make up for it with FREE BREAKFAST, $1 all-you-can-eat pancakes and eggs, and an EVENING CAFE serving beer, wine, and snacks 6 p.m. - midnight.
From the hostel, join the FREE OR CHEAP ACTIVITIES we organize for guests: pub crawls, hostel dinners, walking tours of Chinatown, downtown, and more, museum visits, tea tastings, festival outings, and organized day trips to Muir Woods, wine country, Yosemite, and beyond.
Off the beaten tourist path but still close to it all, the City Center Hostel is in between the gritty Tenderloin district and the clean marble columns of the city's Civic Center and arts districts. The neighborhood is a hub for some of the city's best cheap cuisine as well as great nightclubs and music venues, big and small.
We're just 7 blocks from the Civic Center BART station, and we offer discounted shuttle service to and from the airport. Other amenities include free linens and towels, daily housekeeping, and a full professional-grade kitchen.
