Welcome to our hostel

Vintage is in, and our hostel has all the charm and character that goes with being in a former 1920s boutique hotel. The lobby and guest lounges are all newly renovated, as is our café – a speakeasy during Prohibition, it still serves beer and wine nightly. We pride ourselves on being top-rated for service and amenities (although for many a weary traveller, the best feature of all is that every room – including dorms – has a full, private bathroom en suite). Our location is central and convenient, though we’re not in a “tourist zone.” The neighborhood is a hub for delicious (and cheap) cuisine as well as popular bars and live music. We’re a great choice for savvy travelers who want good value and an authentic, local experience. A few notes: Online prices do not include taxes. Daily bed rates of $40 or more are subject to a 15% tourist and hotel tax. Bed rates of less than $40 are taxed only a 1% tourist tax, per city regulations. Taxes are added at check in. The San Francisco City Center Hostel is operated by Hostelling International USA, a not-for-profit organization dedicated to promoting intercultural understanding, environmental stewardship, and world peace through travel. There is an additional daily membership fee of $3 per adult for non-Hostelling International members. We welcome guests from everywhere outside of San Francisco county. At check in, all guests must present a valid government issued photo identification Please note that we try our best to keep people travelling together in the same room. However, sometimes we may not be able to do so due to room configuration or existing bookings. If you have a special request concerning this, please email the hostel directly.
