This hostel is a 5min walk from Fisherman's Wharf in San Francisco and is situated in Fort Mason. The best thing about this hostel is the location and free parking permit, although when we arrived on a hot Saturday it was difficult to find a space and we drove around the car parks within Fort Mason for 30min trying to find a spot. Having said this, apart from that Saturday every other day we had no trouble at all finding a spot and having free parking available in the heart of San Francisco really was a bonus when staying here. The hostel itself is slightly shabby, the rooms are basic and when we stayed here the rooms were unbelievably hot overnight. It didn't help that the other travellers in the dorm that had beds closest to the windows wanted them closed all night!! The bathrooms in this hostel have a lot to be desired. There was a strong stench of urine in the bathrooms and they are in dire need of a revamp. The breakfast here was ok although there was a limit on the items you could have with little choice. At breakfast you had to present a token (given upon check-in) which enabled you to have either; 2 waffles OR a bagel, one piece of fruit, and a glass of juice and coffee. Overall, this hostel is ideal for travellers with a car who don't mind putting up with dirty bathrooms.. but it wasn't for me!
