Since you’re visiting the City by the Bay, why not stay right on the waterfront? Located in historic Fort Mason, HI-San Francisco Fisherman’s Wharf is surrounded by National Park land on one side, and by the San Francisco Bay on the other. Just outside the hostel, take in breath-taking views of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge, then take an easy stroll to nearby Fisherman’s Wharf, Pier 39, or the posh Marina district.

To explore the rest of San Francisco, simply hop on a MUNI bus just outside the park, or join in on free or cheap hostel activities like pub crawls, walking tours, and museum visits. Heading further afield? Arrange your trip to Muir Woods, wine country, Yosemite, and beyond with our helpful front-desk staff.

Back at the hostel, relax on the sun deck, watch a movie in the theater-style cinema room, or curl up in front of the gas stove in our cozy communal lounge. Enjoy a free continental breakfast, including organic fruit and fair-trade coffee, at our on-site Cafe Franco. Later in the day, Cafe Franco serves homemade, organic lunch and dinner specials, as well as local beer and wine by the glass, to hungry travelers and locals alike. If you prefer to cook your own meals, a nearby supermarket makes it easy to take advantage of the hostel’s fully equipped guest kitchen and dining areas.

HI-Fisherman’s Wharf offers accommodation in shared dorms, as well private rooms sleeping up to 3 people.
On-site amenities include:
*Free Parking

“Wake up every morning and look out the window of the former military outpost at a million-dollar view of the beautiful Golden Gate Bridge in the sunrise there’s not a hotel in town, expensive or cheap, with a better view.

Please note that we cannot accept group reservations here on HostelWorld; for groups of 8 or more please call.

Awesome place to stay with great staff and facilities. I arrived pretty late and had a hard time finding the building- when I called, the front desk attendant not only gave good directions, but even came out and met me half-way to make sure I found my way through the confusing fort mason area!

Can't really think of anything negative to say. The Samesun SF is also nice. I had no trouble finding parking when I was at the HI SF Fishermen's Wharf and I did not experience a break-in, thank goodness! Some things that impressed me most... The ginormous kitchen is awesome. There are actually 2 sides in which you can prepare food. They have gas ranges, ovens, 3 toasters, cutting boards, chef knives, sink for washing, large fridges. I have reached my character limit.

Staff were lovely. Particularly Yana and Louis who organised the Welcome event where there was arts and crafts.Henry'swalking tour is also no to be missed. Hostel is in beautiful location overlooking the bay area with great bus connections across the city. In the big 20-bed dormitory we had our own private bathrooms which was nice, and the beds were also really comfortable. This hostel was amazing!
