As soon as you arrive at pacific tradewinds you become part of the family. I know that sounds a bit lame but it's true. The staff, mostly travellers themselves, greet you by name during your stay and make sure you feel welcome. They encourage you to socialise upstairs in the common room but unlike most hostels, there isn't a heavy emphasis on drinking alcohol and partying, its all about getting to know the other guests and having a chat. The facilities are good too. The dorms were nice - steel blue beds that don't shake, hot showers, a well stocked kitchen...etc. The hostel is in a great location as well, it's close to market street where you can catch all sorts of public transport, its a 20 min walk to the ferry building (and then you can walk down to fishermans wharf) and union square and chinatown are also extremely close. A good hostel made really great by the fantastic staff.

I love the place. it is a small hostel with 36 (?) beds. people who work there are incredible and I still have contact with them. looking forward to going back there. it's free wi-fi, linen, breakfast, towels, and about 1 time a week they arranged a dinner party for all who live there for only 5 $. (thanks for the barbeque on the roof)
It takes about 30 minutes from SF International airport. location is good, and it is very easy to get around the city on foot from the hostel.

without doubt the best hostel I've stayed at, and that´s for only $ 26 per night!

I stayed here for a weekend enroute back to Boston from Thailand. My earlier plans to stay with friends fell through, but it turned out well in the end as this was a great place to stay.

The hostel is located near Chinatown and the Financial district. It is a quick walk up Montgomery street from the BART station (which connects to the airport). The hostel is on the 3rd and 4th floor. There is a nice common space with two computers for guest use and free wifi. It seems there are always people here eating or playing games or chatting, so it is easy to meet people. There were 3 bunk beds in my room with storage lockers under the bunks which are large enough for a backpack - need to bring your own lock. The beds were comfortable and I slept quite well. Bedding and towels are provided.

The location of the hostel made it easy to get around the city. I went to Berkeley one night on the BART and the rest of the time used the local buses/cablecars to get around ($2 for mutlple rides within a 3 hour period). I believe there are bikes for rent at the hostel as well. The staff at the hostel are very friendly and know the city quite well. They were able to give all sorts of pointers for which bus route to take, what restaurant to go to, etc. The kitchen is small (no oven!) but adequate and there is free breakfast in the morning. I have to give a special thank you to Avi, who made fabulous pancakes one morning and taught me how to make griddle pizza with some great mushrooms and fresh cheese purchased from the Ferry Building Market (definitely recommended - great food).

I would definitely stay here again.

I stayed here for a weekend visiting San Francisco. The hostel facilities are pretty good with fast wifi and computers free to use as well as free coffee all day. The common room is quite small but has a nice friendly, relaxed atmosphere and is very conducive for meeting/hanging out with fellow travellers. Good value, great location and great staff. Every member of staff was friendly and helpful and did everything they good to make it a great place to stay. Just don't stay here if you have trouble with stairs! 72 steps to reach the hostel from the street.

Remember, this is a hostel. Bring your hostel gear, earplugs, rubber shoes, decent pajamas. You will be brushing your teeth next to a stranger, but that's the fun of it.

Strategic location to public transportation - YES
Hot water - YES
Squeaky beds - NO
Large storage with normal lock holes - YES
Friendly staff - YES
Generous staff - YES
Helpful staff - YES
Fun staff - YES
Clean - YES
Accommodating - YES
Windows that open - YES
Full kitchen - YES
Computer Access - YES
Elevator - NO (4 flights of stairs, it'll keep the pounds off)
Location - Excellent, to most SF interests.

There was not an instance that I had an inquiry that they were not willing to assist with. Very helpful, more so than many hotels I've stayed in. As the staff are residents, they keep the place clean and fun.

One suggestion; as the community room is well used, because the atmosphere is so lovely, the cushions could use some re-upholstery, (maybe duck cloth to keep with the nautical theme).

One guest was very upset when I left due to another guest's accident. That is NOT the fault of the hostel. Guests need to be responsible for themselves.

I would stay here again anytime, it was a great find!
