Hotel & Youth Hostel Reservation FAQs
HI-San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf is the first -- and most famous -- hostel in the 'City by the Bay.' This is the ideal choice for travelers who want to stay in a park setting with stunning views, but still have easy access to the city's urban delights.
HI-San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf is housed 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, overlooking the San Francisco Bay with stunning views of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge.
Scenic, paved foot/bike paths run from the hostel, along the water, east to Fisherman's Wharf and west to the Marina Green, making for a beautiful, bayside morning walk or ride whichever direction you choose. Fort Mason is worthy of exploration in and of itself, boasting theaters, galleries, and performance spaces as well as outdoor activities.
In addition to shared dorms we offer private rooms sleeping up to 4 people. Free linens and towels as well as daily housekeeping service are included, and laundry facilities are available on site.
A free continental breakfast is provided every morning in our on-site restaurant, Cafe Franco, with fruit, toast, bagels, or waffles. Cafe Franco also serves healthy, organic lunches and dinners at affordable prices, and you'll find locals as well as hostellers enjoying the great quality food and gorgeous views.
If you prefer to cook your own meals, we have a spacious, fully-equipped guest kitchen, and you can dine either in the large dining room or on the outdoor deck, both with the beautiful bay views.
The hostel is equipped with free WiFi, and provides high-speed Internet facilities for rent. Cozy up at the end of your long day of sightseeing next to the wood-burning stove in our lounge, or make new friends over the foosball and pool tables in the game room.
Be sure to take advantage of the free or low-cost activities the hostel organizes daily, such as pub-crawls, walking tours, and day trips out to the Napa Wine Country or to the gorgeous Yosemite Valley.
