San Francisco hostels are one of the most economical and friendly ways to stay to explore the city. A favorite of student travelers, San Francisco international hostels offer private or shared accommodations, storage and laundry facilities, common areas perfect for meeting fellow travelers, and often, Wi-Fi, breakfast and proximity to city attractions.

Make your reservation at one of our San Francisco hostels today.

Ranging from dorm-like rooms that sleep many budget-minded guests to private rooms with en suite bathrooms, San Francisco hostels have surprising variety. All of the city’s hostels are either located downtown in the middle of all the action or are just a short public-transit ride from San Francisco’s museums, performing arts venues, shopping districts, colorful neighborhoods and transportation hubs.

International hostels in San Francisco cater to those for whom the adventure of travel is the main priority — who don’t need all the frills and amenities that often come with pricier hotel rooms. And they generally don’t require advance reservations.
