San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf Hostel – Hostelling International

Welcome to the oldest and most famous hostel in San Francisco. Located in a National Park with beautiful views of the Golden Gate Bridge and Alcatraz, we’re a unique urban retreat for budget travelers of all ages. Come be our guest!


  1. Hi Lisa, I was there for a week during the 1st week of 2008 and have fond memories.  I'd love to stay there again.  For people who want to work in a Hostel, what type of experience should one have?

  2. I stayed there in March 2013, met a guy from Portugal, who was in San Francisco, and trying to make contacts for the company he worked for in Europe had a great time in San Francisco enjoyed my time there. It has been nearly
    7 years since being on the west coast of California. One of the best trips I have ever had in North America.
    I remember going to Alcatraz while staying at the hostel, and spending time at Fishermans wharf I wish I had spent
    more of my time exploring the coastal areas it was a good trip it's now 2nd Sept 2020 and I would love to go back to San Francisco and to Fishermans Wharf hostel it was $32.00 when I stayed there last time I checked it was about $65. it's seven years ago so inflation etc loved San Francisco

  3. It is a great place because my class from school in Australia went on an USA tour and we stayed their for 3 night and it was great !:)

  4. Hi, I'm planning on heading to a hostel in San fransicso. Any recommandation? And I'm concerned with the safety of my belonging as I'm traveling there solo. So what are the precautions to take while staying in a hostel to safeguard against theft? Thank you
