I generally stay in Oakland to save money or the Wharf if I can get a good deal but neither seemed that great an option so I reluctantly took a shot on this place. I've never done the 'upstairs hotel' or shared bathroom thing but the timing and the price were right. First, the neighborhood. It's vibrant and bustling. Yes,...

This is a great spot if you aren't spending much time at the hotel. It's not a spa and is best for sleeping and resting up. Make sure to reserve a room with your own bathroom ($25 extra), or you'll feel like you have been overcharged. The Europa defines the neighborhhod nexus. It marks district corner convergence for chinatown, financial,...

Decided to take my girlfriend on a quick trip to San Francisco, and in order to maximize our fun I skimped on the hotel we were going to stay in. I booked at the Europa hotel/hostel, and surprisingly enough, it was not all that bad. The hotel is located on Columbus St. And in walking distance of most of the...

This was my first time at a hostel and was better than I expected . The good points . It was within easy walking distance of Chinatown and the pier which was nice . The room was simple but was very clean . The staff working behind the desk were two young guys and they were very nice . The...

Firstly, I believe a lot of the people who booked this naively thought this was an actual hotel, hence the overwhelmingly bad reviews. My boyfriend and I are currently backpacking the states so this room was the cheapest private room in central San Francisco (hostels turned out to be more expensive). So generally, upon arrival and discovering it was more...

I dont recommend this place. Find something else.. If you do go to this hostel BUY EARPLUGS (I found them in a local Chinese supermaket nearby, take the strongest ones 30db.) even then we could still hear the street with the windows closed. You should know that it is located above a stripclub. Not sure if it is 1 or...

We choose the Hotel Europa because of the fact that all main attractions were about 15 minutes to walk away. We did not have a car while in San Francisco and relied on being able to reach everything within walking distance. The Bart Station to get to the airport was about 15 minutes walking distance also. The hotel is nestled...

My wife and I purposely chose this hotel because of the low price compared to other hotel within walking distance of Fisherman's Wharf. The room was clean, and there was a sink and TV in the room, but that was about all the good I can say. The separate men's and women's restrooms are down the hall and only moderately...

Good location in San Fran but even the rooms with private bathrooms are very basic, hostel not hotel standard in my opinion. We were in a twin room on the interior side of the building. Room got incredibly hot during the day even in the latter part of September with the window open. (Once the building maintenance man had managed...

Upon arrival at the Europa hotel my friend and I were happy with the hotel's location as there are lots of bars local (some porno!). When we got into our room we quickly realised that there was no wifi. The room also had an odd smell and the window was wide open. However there was a nice big tv and...

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighbourhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighbourhood home.
