Historic Hostel, Urban Oasis

Set in a waterfront National Park, HI San Francisco Fisherman's Wharf overlooks San Francisco Bay, with views of Alcatraz and the Golden Gate Bridge.

Housed in historic buildings, we offer a range of accommodations including both shared dorms and private rooms. Our on-site cafe, Cafe Franco, has beautiful bay views and serves up three meals a day, including free continental breakfast. Common areas include a spacious guest lounge, theater-style TV room, rec room, self-serve kitchen, and outdoor deck. Our friendly staff host daily activities including walking and biking tours, pub crawls, dinners, and movies.

From the hostel's back door, paved foot/bike paths run along the water, east to Fisherman's Wharf, and west to the Marina Green, Crissy Field, the Presidio, and the Golden Gate Bridge. Within walking distance of North Beach and the Marina District, we're a great choice for travelers seeking a peaceful, park setting that's a unique oasis in the midst of a world-class city.

Please note: Parties with children under the age of 12 must stay in a private room or rent out an entire dorm room. US citizens under the age of 18 who are traveling without a legal guardian must submit a notarized permission form from their guardians stating that the person with whom the child is traveling is acting as their guardian for the exact dates of their stay. Please contact the hostel at sffishermanswharf@hiusa.org and we’ll be happy to send you the necessary form.
