even though it is a hostel with a shared and not-so-enticing shower/bathroom. I recommend a night or two at this hostel, then splurge for a better hotel afterwards. I lived in the City 13 years and this is s good way to experience it. Stay away from Fishermans Wharf, its busy and expensive with horrible food. Fort Mason is near many of the tru SF neighborhoods: the Marina with Chestnut street, food and small shops; Union Street (between Laguna and Divisdero; all of Fillmore Street. Just walk up Polk Street from the water to Van Ness and you will see many aspects of SF. But the Fort mason Park is also beautiful. We has a "private"room for 3 here and the window had a view of the Golden Gate bridge! Priceless!
As directions to the #49 bus to take you to the Mission (mexican) or the next street over Valencia Street (all between 20th and 16th), which is the hip area for food (again!) art and nightlife. The bus too is an experience not to be missed. If you are truly exceptiional, you willl find the alley of beautiful murals--ask around..
