Lots of stairs when coming up and leaving hostel. The commons area has no windows which makes it a bit dark and... dungeony as well as stuffy. Besides that I would describe the hostel as a 'family like vibe'. Open kitchen concept, and you can still speak/hang with other travellers while cooking. Very inclusive. The staff were very helpful and had recommendations for anything you were looking for. Bathrooms are cleaned regularly which is fantastic.read more

The location is great as it’s near to financial district and 10 minutes walk from BART. But for check in, you need to... climb up the stairs all the way up to 4th floor which is pretty tiring.However, the staff there is really nice and friendly. There’s activity for every night and free breakfast every morning. Extra Pros of this place is they even have a WhatsApp group which connect everyone and allow you to find a travel partner easier!Cons: Room hygiene really need to improve at some point 🙂read more

Sublime location with parking garages just a five minute walk away. The owners were very nice! Although I had been up... since 5 AM yesterday morning working, so I was a little exasperated when he made sure to show me every bathroom location, my room, the storage compartments, and the kitchen. I was ready to be like ya girl can figure it out herself, 'cause she's resourceful ... For a w o m a n (all my homies will understand). 😮‍💨🤗read more

I will it 6/10 Rating. Good things about this hostel is Guy Named TJ on the reception. He is super cool and nice guy.... aother 02 ladies staff of hostel are also nice. Location is Ok. Wasrooms are super clean.Very small but ok.Negative Points. - Breakfast items are very limited. Hostel is located in 4th floor. And so many stairs you have to Climb.If they give you room on 5th floor than add some more stairs too.You should have to be Physically fit to climb many stairs.Not recomends to old age people. Its a very small hostel with Limited space in lobby. You may try if not have other option.read more

I really enjoyed my stay at the ITH Pacific Tradewinds Hostel in San Francisco. Apart from the clean rooms and beds,... the experience as a solo traveler was great. Multiple suggested activities are offered by the hostel, such as the weekly rooftop barbeque! Also the staff is super friendly and will help you to the best of their abilities all the time. Kim-ly for instance was able to provide an early check-in for me which was super helpful! All in all a good hostel for solo travelers!read more

Very nice and full of life ! The staff was great, breakfast is basic but it's free and that is very kind! Rooms are ok,... I found the mattress to be perfect but it can be thin and uncomfortable for some. Bathrooms always found clean so that's great as well. Thanks to everyone there !read more

Have stayed here both times I've come up to SF for more than a day. Nothing but positive things to say. Great location,... warm and helpful staff, feels like a home away from home. They always have things to do, easy check-in and check-out - met a lot of great people there, as well. Also, the free PB&Js are useful. 🙂read more

Pacific Tradewinds met all expectations I had before the trip. Located in the heart of SF, nearby North Beach... bars/restaurants area, next to Chinatown and on reasonable distance of main SF attractions.Staff of the hostel were all super friendly, room was clean and breakfast included in the price is an extra add-on!I originally was planning to stay in the city for 2 days but because of cozy conditions in hostel I prolonged it for 2 more nights.read more

A 5 star is in order....it's my own personal setback that was accomadated.... Make sure that if you may not have a... cellular signal through a carrier ( like me) exercise a bit of patience at the entry. There is a sweet spot to connect to the wifi after booking and then able to utilize the keyless entry.A very memorable experience I will hold dear. I was there on International affairs. Walking distance to many many excellent spots to see. Hit Chinatown on foot and grab some whole foods and experiment in the kitchen.Very functional shared kitchen, clean bathrooms.read more

My boyfriend and I stayed here in October during covid and we had a great experience! The staff had it set up so there... was a no-contact check-in (but also were readily available on the phone in case we had any issues). We were very pleased with how clean the hostel was and the staff had sanitizer available to clean up yourself. Definitely sad we couldn't enjoy it as an open hostel and meet friends but we still loved it!read more
