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.

After 3 stints here, It's the most beautiful Hostel in the City limits & part of the NPS, (National Parks Service). It is located on a hill between the Marina Safeway & end of Van Ness Blvd (a main thoroughfare in SF). Fort Mason is outside of downtown, but still close enough to stroll to {Union Square,(Ghiradelli, Finance District, Pier 39/41,43, the Maritime Museum, shipyard & all the attractions near the Pier area). Due to location, it's closer to the GGBridge & Crissy Field.
