It's like going back to summer camp, but with a jaw-dropping waterfront view of the San Francisco Bay and Golden Gate Bridge. Nestled into historic Fort Mason you'll feel right at home in this rustic natural retreat. Enjoy the friendly communal feeling at this super eco-friendly hostel, cozy up to the fire, play a late night game of billiards with friends.
You can choose from a shared dorm or indulge in a private room at wayyy below San Francisco market prices. Eco-conscious Cafe Franco serves up breakfast, lunch and dinner, and you're always welcome to join staff-led outings into the city. Daily activities include bike tours, pub crawls and movie nights. When you head back to the hostel, you'll be surrounded by the natural aromatherapy of eucalyptus trees wafting through the air... and the sounds of David Bowie as you head for a cup of tea before bed.
