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.

Staff was extremely unprofessional and not friendly at all.I was staying for 6 nights and on my 2nd day I had a knee injury and couldn't climb up the top bunk.staff didn't even try to help accommodate me better.I had a 1 free night voucher they didn't want to honor for no reason.It took 3 complaints to finally get my refund.the manager was never in. reception was more interested in flirting with the customers than taking care of people waiting to ask questions. Great place but awful experience.

It was more convenient and secure if I could have more electrical outlets, especially around the bedside.
