Had a great experience here! Clean, good location, and friendly people. If you bring a car, I recommend finding a parking garage to leave it in and walking or taking public transportation everywhere. Would recommend to anybody who enjoys meeting new people from all over the world.

Landed at SFO 2pm, picked up hire car and checked in at 5. Easy drive in, and thanks for the detailed parking instructions, just paid 32 bucks per day for an underground parking 3 min away. Great help for finding places to eat and visit and nice guests, everyone really respectful and friendly. Great location too!

I stayed at Pacific Tradewinds for a week whilst I was in San Francisco - I was there for business (4-day conference) but had extra days to explore the city which is what made me choose PT. I had a great group cycle to Sausalito and met some lovely folks from all over the world. I literally only used this...

I spent three nights in SF with every day shifting to another hostel because I couldn't find a one I would like. That one was really good though other than the other two places I tried. They're very friendly and the rooms and bathrooms were very clean. Only negative thing is that you will have to go up three floors...

This was my first stay at a hostel and I could not have asked for a more perfect stay. Pacific Tradewinds is excellent. From the bathrooms, the beds, the location... to the friendliest staff... this hostel is truly excellent! Thank you for making my stay so pleasant and keep up the great work.

Staying in Financial District

Neighbourhood Profile
Financial District
The Financial District lies just east of Chinatown but can seem a world apart given it’s San Francisco’s version of Wall Street. The rush of business people make up a hectic weekday and add to a frenetic pace of life, but visitors who spend a few hours walking the narrow streets will be rewarded with fine examples of historic and contemporary architecture, including the iconic Transamerica Pyramid. After business hours, bars and restaurants quickly fill up with happy hour revelers. Stocks aren’t the only kind of market being followed, the Ferry Building Marketplace on the Embarcadero is a gourmet food emporium and farmers market that will satisfy anyone working up an appetite.
