I've rated this hostel on HostelWorld but felt the need to rate it on here for those not using the website because I found it so good. The hostel is small which means you get to speak to people easily. Although I didn't get involved as I had other plans, there were lots of things organised for group outings which was good for single travellers. The showers and bathroom area were very clean, as were the dorms. The lockers underneath the beds were the best I've come across and allowed me to fit my large backpack in. Kitchen was well equipped and there were computers to use and free wifi. One small downside, it's about three flights of stairs up. However the staff did come down to meet me at the bottom when checking in and offered to help with bags. The staff were great - very friendly and informative. Great location too. Would definitely recommend and would stay again in the future!

This hostel is in a great spot in the vicinity of China town and the financial district, so huge range of local restaurants and prices! Loved the personal care from Pacific Tradewinds, great staff, and a fun place to be, thanks guys....and breakfast included!

I loved this hostel in more ways then I could describe . The staff were extremely friendly, helping me carry my bags, and after a few days we were all great friends. The price is so great for everything you get. A small place but perfect for any person traveling, you really become friends with everyone here. I loved the sense of community you feel within the hostel. Meeting the owner and the family was great, you really could tell they loved doing what they did. I would tell everyone to stay here, once you leave, you just want to go back. I have stayed at numerous hostels around the world, and can honestly say this was the best one by far! I will never forget the memories I had here!

Room Tip: All the rooms are great, great for meeting people!

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!
