this was the cheapest place i could find in sf.
and it was discovered to be the best value for money!
the doorms are great and very clean.
most of the guests are very nice and you can meet fellow travelers there very easily.
the kitchen is very well stocked, and thoy even have a small 'store' in the hostel where you can buy food and drinks.

they have a very strange booking system. you can only choose a date and you can stay as long as you like (up to 14 days) since that date. so you should book ahead.

Room Tip: there is only a dorm option. and they have a giant window so it gets very bright in the morning. so if you are planing to sleep late than put on an eye cover and maybe some ear plugs since not all the guests understand they should keep it quite in the morning.

Pacific Tradewinds is one of the best hostels (or the best) I've been in. Why? First, it's clean. Second, the staff is friendly, helpful and very respectful and organized about the daily schedule, like the hours to cook, eat, clean, sleep and party. The Dorms are cool, you'll have big and secure lockers for your stuff, nice bathrooms and the most important aspect of a hostel: the common area, because it makes the difference between a hostel and any other place. It's a big place where you will eat, cook and relax with interesting people around you.

It's hard to find a single fault with this hostel. Friendly staff, great location, comfy beds, excellent nights sleep, nice facilities, fantastic social atmosphere - the list goes on!

It's a small place and the rooms are set up so that everyone ends up in the common room chatting with each other (the kitchen and front desk are part of the same room). The hostel is mostly staffed and maintained by previous travellers, so they are really friendly and are full of suggestions for things to do.

At midnight the lights go out in the common room and those that are left either move on or go to bed. This is a fantastic system as it means regardless of whether you have an early night or a big one, you are ensured a good nights sleep. Everyone seemed to love this idea.

I was here for a few days holiday at the start of a work trip, and surprised to find quite a few other guests doing something similar. There was a diverse group of people there, so you are sure to have no trouble finding people to join you on whatever you want to do (which is great for solo travellers like me!).

The hostel is in a very safe area away from most of the noise of the city. However, it's just a short walk to get to most of the popular areas and a short bus or train ride to the rest.

The beds are comfy and don't squeak and there are lockers under them to store your stuff securely. Towels are free so you don't have to carry your own, the blankets are nice and thick, they offer a reasonably priced laundry service. They have free wifi or you can use their computers for internet access.

A great, clean and comfortable hostel in the centre of San Francisco. Very safe area. The staff is super nice and helpful, ready to answer all your questions. You should be prepared to climb the stairs to the 4th floor, but it's a good (and free :P) everyday workout. Wonderful atmosphere, definitely recommend :)

Pacific Tradewinds is an incredibly friendly place, we were even given free chocolate becauise Halloween was only 3 weeks away. The staff are incredibly friendly and cannot do enough to help with anything you need, the free tea and coffee on arrival was amazing considering how far we'd come and how tired we felt, it really made us feel like we'd hit the jackpot of hostels. There is always advice on the best things to do in San Francisco and the staff will elt you know how good the various attractions are and whether they are worth the money. You can even leave your bags for free all day on check out. Thanks guys, it was an awesome stay!
