Pacific Tradewinds Hostel
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 9 November 2011

The atmosphere is great, it feels like you're part of a tight-knit family when you stay here. Everyone is really easy to get along with, and the staff are happy to help and will even join you for activities around the city. The facilities are good with a cozy common area and decent kitchen, and the bunks are sturdy and silent. I know the build quality of the beds doesn't sound all that important, but trust me; you won't lose belongings down the side or be woken up by creaking metal at 4am! I made some awesome friends while at the hostel and was really sad to leave. If you're traveling to San Francisco, stay here!

Everything is near. Great good and cheap food around the corner in China town. Not too big, but big enough to meet interesting people.

Such a warm welcome from the staff, and this seems to give the whole place a friendly atmosphere...felt really comfortable sitting and chatting with the other guests. The place is small, friendly, clean, safe and was somewhere peerfect to stay! I'd recommend it to anyone.

This was the greatest trip of my life thanks to this great place, you cant beat the value and location and my favorite part was all the great people I met while there. We made great memorys and lasting friendships that will never be forgotten. This is the best hostel I have ever stayed at.
Great community feel, very clean, and a very helpful and respectful staff. Hope to come back again soon! I love San Francisco and I will never stay anywhere else if I can help it..
