    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!

    At first I planned to stay here just for a couple days, but I kept extending up to 2 weeks. It was one of the best times in my life, the staff helped me when ever I got any needs. Everyone was so gorgeous and I felt like living in a big family, which is standing on your side. I would love to write an whole essay about this Hostel and the staff but there is not enough space😔 #family #common area🎶 #bordgames🧮 #quiet floor🤫 #love♥️ #free food🍞 #clean #comfortable #events🏟️ #location📍 #🏳️‍🌈

    So! This is not a good hostel. This is THE BEST hostel I have ever been in my life until now. From the first moment you feel like a part of their family! Great vibes, very clean, happy faces and above all you are in the heart of the city. 5’ away from the marvellous China town. For sure I will come back. I feel like I’ve made some new friends there! Thank you very much for the awesome experience!!! ❤️

    This is a VERY friendly and social hostel. The staff went above and beyond to make sure I had everything I needed. I will be comparing all hostel hospitality to this one from here on out. :-) The mattresses and pillows are a little thin, but I still slept fine for one night. This hostel is also very close to a lot of things- it's really a great location. They have a lot of good systems in place. I highly recommend!

    This place is a gem. Staff are incredibly friendly and put on a lot of social activities for anyone that's interested. Really great vibe in the common space which allows for an easy way to meet other travelers or otherwise kickback in the hostel with everyone. Big plus is that its centrally located in San Francisco. Would absolutely recommend if looking for a place in the San Francisco area.
