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.

Travel safe! View House Rules

    Stayed here for a week and it was fantastic! It’s in a very walkable part of town with good food, China Town, and Target very close by. The atmosphere is chill and the folks working the place are super cool! It’s super clean. The mattresses are a bit thin but they offer extra pillows and blankets as needed. I will definitely be staying here again!

    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.

    Loved this hostel. Only the second one I've ever stayed in and my husband's first time. With COVID it's only two people to a room so my husband and I were able to have a whole room all to ourselves. The social aspect is somewhat lost because of the privacy, but I can tell it's a wonderful place to stay, covid or not.

    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.

    This hostel has great location in the Financial District of San Francisco. It it next to Chinatown and the food is so good in this section of the city. Public transportation is within walking distance, which can transfer all over the bay area. The hostel was a nice place overall. I'm staying during the COVID-19 pandemic, so I did not meet any staff members. Check in was completely online. I didn't talk to anyone face to face during my entire week long stay here.

    This is by far the worst hostel I’ve ever stayed at and I’ve probably been at 40+ hostels. It smells sooo bad, there is no real way to get ahold of any staff, the pillow was the thinnest thing I’ve ever felt!
