Wake up to stunning views over San Francisco Bay at San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf Hostel. House in historic Fort Mason at the edge of the Golden Gate National Recreation Area, one of California's most beautiful and diverse National Parks, the hostel sits right on the waterfront looking out to Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge.

Offering a range of accommodation options including shared dorms and private rooms, the hostel has free Wi-Fi, on-site restaurant which serves free breakfast and up to three meals a day, spacious guest lounge with wood-burning stove, theatre-style TV room, self-serve kitchen and an outdoor deck where you can enjoy the beautiful bay views.

Take a beautiful bayside morning walk or ride along the footpaths that run from the hostel, and be sure to take advantage of hostel’s daily activities including pub-crawls, walking tours and day trips to Napa Wine Country or the gorgeous Yosemite Valley.

San Fran is a fantastic city and worth a visit for 2 days as we did but to review the Hostel...The location and price in comparison to others is good but still slightly expensive for a hostel that is not the cleanest nor quietest. When booking you expect to hear fog horns as its coastal but random humming noises from machines or pipes is not one you expect. I had to use earplugs to sleep and I'm a very good sleeper. The twin private room we had was dirty, didn't seem dusted for months 6/10
