Property Description

CORONAVIRUS UPDATE: We are committed to the fight against the spread of the Coronavirus!

We know being away from home as a traveler right now can be stressful. We would be happy to host you here and you can think of us as your “home away from home”. If you need a social no-party hostel to stay and “weather the storm” please consider our small traveler community.

We have modified our procedures to keep our housemates and guests as safe and virus free as possible. We are asking all guests to remain inside as much as possible to avoid bringing the virus into our home. If guests do leave the hostel they must agree to social distance from others on the street and promise they will not go to parties, clubs, restaurants, and other areas with gatherings of people. When guests return to the hostel, we require them to hand sanitize thoroughly immediately after opening the first door of the hostel.

Our staff is obsessively cleaning all high-touch surfaces in our hostel and we encourage you to participate in our virus prevention measures. We have a cleaning station for you to clean your cell phone, laptop, keys, wallet etc. Our dorms are only being rented as private rooms with a maximum of 2 people per room.

We have movie nights and even some non-contact games. Of course, we have free wi-fi so you can stay in touch with loved ones at home.

We have an isolation plan in place in case someone gets sick in the hostel.

If you are currently free of symptoms, and willing to exercise social responsibility with a friendly community of wayward travelers we would be happy to welcome you.

    Wow, this hostel is just top. Everything from location to staff to the free pb&j and instant ramen. I stayed at pacific Tradewinds for 4 nights, but with the friends I’d made it felt more like 2 weeks. The staff were unbelievable, I’ve never met hostel staff that are more friendly and down to earth! There truly is more of a family/sharehouse vibe here than any other hostel I’ve stayed in. Loved my stay, awesome and super safe location, unbelievably clean, can’t wait to come back to SF.

    Absolutely loved this hostel! The staff are very friendly and helpful. This is a super social hostel, so it is easy to make friends! The area is clean. Bring your own lock (which is normal). Unlimited peanut butter and jelly’s really came in handy too. You’re even allowed to use the facilities the entire day of your check out. There are some bad areas in San Francisco, but this is not one of them. If you’re worried about safety, stay here!

    I recommend staying at the pacific Tradewinds hostel for your stay in San Francisco. I stayed at here for three nights in the mixed dorm while I was in town working on my visa stuff and am super glad I did. The staff were all super great, always helpful and welcoming. The free food & coffee was tasty, the showers were hot and it was close to everything I wanted to do while I was in town. We played games, watched the super bowl, ate falafels, and there was a great book/game nook. Thank you!

    It's a comfortable little spot in the middle of downtown, close to subway, which will take you to attractions in little time. The best part is its size. This hostel has a single common area that is large enough to accommodate all the guests and yet small enough to encourage social interaction between guests and staff. The staff are friendly and helpful. They facilitate daily activities from Tuesday to Friday which provides a great opportunity for meeting other travelers.

    Lovely hostel with good kitchen/common room area. Staff were very friendly and offered advice on things to do in the area. They also arranged different food and drinks nights in the hostel and a trivia night at a pub nearby. Good for solo travellers. Good place to chill.

    The staff was great -really nice and interactive with the guests. Activities where provided which was great! I loved that they’re free PB&J. It was really clean. However, the beds are SO uncomfortable because the mattress is sooo thin. My back hurt really bad at night. Also the WiFi reception is really bad even when using the assigned 3rd floor WiFi. Also the dorm is on the 3rd or 4th floor which isn’t all to convenient if you’re traveling with a big suitcase.
