first of all, I stayed here regularly as I'm in San Francisco very often. I used to stay at some other hostels but now if I must stay in the city more than a week, I will definitely stay here at Pacific Tradewinds. I know and have met so many friends here from all over the world including the staff...

Brilliant atmosphere, nice small hostel with great people. Had so much fun. Great activities, even better cooking for the group meals and the staff are great. A unique place as its small and cost effective in the center of downtown. Great cosy atmosphere. Would recommend

You should most definitely book this hostel if you're a backpacker and you had no luck Couchsurfing in SF. You should probably book this hostel if you are on a budget, because it's very cheap by SF standards, and its location is very good. You should probably stay elsewhere if you want any privacy. Note to the people arriving with...

Nice place to stay and visit San Francisco, the guys of the hostel are very funny and help me a lot to find the best places to visit in the city. They have good activities in the hostel and in the city to do everyday. I hope to come back soon.

After climbing a steep 4 floors, this 16 guests hostel is compact, friendly and for the rate is good. You will need to use the ear plugs and eye shades to sleep in this bunker beds, it can get a lot noisy and disturbance for the light sleeper. The location is good, 10 minute walk to the cable car station,...

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s version of Wall Street. The rush of business people make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of historic and contemporary architecture, including the iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours, bars and restaurants quickly fill up with happy hour revelers. Stocks aren’t the only kind of market being followed, the Ferry Building Marketplace on the Embarcadero is a gourmet food emporium and farmers market that will satisfy anyone working up an appetite.
