HI San Francisco Downtown: a return to the 1970s

youth hostel

In San Francisco, you can't escape the 1970s, especially in a youth hostel!

If you are a young backpacker, you may be following in the footsteps of your grandparents who took the road to Kathmandu just a handful of decades ago. You probably share the same pleasure in meeting new friends, listening to music and remaking the world as they did. That is exactly what you will do when you find yourself in this hostel. Besides its vintage decoration, it has preserved the feeling of the 1970s and not just because you are listening to the Doors and Led Zeppelin!

This state of mind is likely cultivated by the view of the ocean as you look out your bedroom window. Whether in a private or shared room, all have a pleasant view of the bay. In the fog, you can hang out in the spacious living room in front of the wood stove while someone plays the piano.

In good weather, take one of the bikes available and go for a ride. Upon your return, you can improvise your own meal in the professionally equipped kitchen!
