We are 4.5 miles from San Francisco International Aiport.
We are located 8 minutes from San Francisco Airport and just 15 minutes from downtown San Francisco.
There is a shopping mall within walking distance and multiple eateries, grocery stores, and fast food places.
Pacific Tradewinds is in the heart of San Francisco. We’re nestled comfortably between the Financial District and Chinatown, a stone's throw from the iconic Transamerica Tower, and stumbling-home distance from North Beach's vibrant bars. We’re also one block from the famous California cable cars, fifteen minutes away from the Union Square shopping district, and a ten-minute walk from Market Street, where you can catch a train to SFO and almost everywhere else in the city you might want to go!
We were disappointed with this hostel. Very limited level of cleanliness ... We slept in a converted cellar. There is too little sanitary for the number of residents .. Finally, the staff is not accommodating: while we had booked for 2 people for weeks, we realized that we could not sleep in the same dormitory even though the hostel was not full.
It's not an AJ but a home for young workers. Housekeeping really lacking and very noisy. The locals do not care about others with the TV at maximum volume at 4am !! I do not recommend!
Couldn't have asked for a more convenient and accommodating place to "crash". Had to drop my friend off at airport around 4 am and this made that situation very easy. People were super friendly and flexible. Clean bathrooms and provided super comfy blankets, pillows, mattress, ect. Only recommendation would be that there should be a volume/time expectation for noise. Someone was watching netflix at like 2:30 am on a projector. Other than that, I would 100% recommend this spot to anyone!
Overall it was a great experience. Staff and other guests were very friendly, well located, safe area. Its an interesting set up because is in a suburban neighborhood and in a regular looking house so its easy to miss from the outside. Great value for the money especially compared to other options in the area.
I loved staying at Pacific Tradewinds Hostel! We make friends easily because the atmosphere is very nice, it feels safe even for a girl traveling alone, which is not the case in all hostels in San Francisco ... Cleaning is done very regularly, it is well placed (between Chinatown and the Financial District), practical (except perhaps the floors to climb but I always found someone to help me with my suitcase!) It feels like home fast. You can even have peanut butter and ramen for free in the kitchen! The storage for the bags under the beds are really practical, a shower towel is at your disposal. The people who work there are all very nice and caring. I highly recommend !
I loved spending a few days at the Pacific Tradewinds Hostel, everyone was lovely with me, I had great meetings, the atmosphere is super nice, and safe even for a girl traveling alone! It is well placed, clean, nice. I felt so good that I was sad to leave this place! I highly recommend !
très bien. Très bon accueil convivial bien placé. Propre. Bien située. Par contre chambre un peu petites. A noter la présence d une salle de bains pour personnes handicapées mais pas d ascenseur...
Very attentive staff, facilities for any questions, good vibes, accessibility to all areas, well located and respectful environment
I recommend this place. The people who work laba are really friendly. The place is clean and really well located. It is possible to use the computer, printer, board games and free wifi. It also has bread, peanut butter and free coffee.

The photos of the hostel do not correspond to reality. Hostel located in the center of SF, but dubious area for families with children. The cleanliness leaves something to be desired, especially at the sanitary level. Average home
This is the second hostel I've been in San Francisco. The first one was wonderful but this one was horrible. It was dirty and sticky everywhere, the kitchen, the bathroom, the door handles... And as a girl traveling alone I wasn't feeling safe, the atmosphere was very different from my first hostel. I was supposed to stay for 4 nights but I decided to leave after my first night there. The employee who worked there the day I left was nice though.
Basic and cheap. Friendly staff. Working hot shower. Clean bed. Close to Public Transpo. So, if you're looking for a place to sleep and shower, this is a good place.
Could have been better. Stayed for a night. The bed was clean, the room was alright, but the staff were nice, so its ok.
Located in the middle of downtown at Post and Hyde, behind a gate.
