Our location allows for a smooth and eventful visit to San Francisco. We are centrally located between historic Chinatown, North Beach (Little Italy), and the Financial District. Fisherman’s Wharf and Pier 39 are a quick walk away and the cable car takes our guests to Union Square with ease. Traversing San Francisco is a breeze as our hostel sits close to all types of public transportation: Muni, Bart, cable cars, and ferries!
