We invite travelers and adventurers of all ages from all corners of the globe to rest their heads at this historic hostel in the heart of San Francisco.

Located in the culturally rich neighborhood of North Beach (SF’s Little Italy) and right on the edge of America’s largest China Town, we are surrounded by great food and fun. The rhythm of the Beat Poets are flowing in the streets outside their regular hang outs, like Vesuvio, and City Lights Bookstore, just a couple blocks away.

This is your home away from home, the perfect spot to leave your worries behind while you explore the many landmarks that the city is just waiting for you to find.

Our Grand Ballroom is the heart of the hostel where people play music, make friends and unforgettable memories, fall in love with the city and each other, and raise glasses in celebration.

Come find us – we’re waiting to show you the most epic San Francisco adventure that you could ever dream of.
