    Smack dab in the middle of downtown San Francisco, you'll find comfy rooms, free coffee, a friendly, helpful staff all at Hosteling International prices. A private room for two people translates into about 100 USD per night. Dorm beds are about a quarter of that. The big plus is that there's tons of great restaurants right around the corner and a hooka bar within walking distance. Dress warmly.

    There are a few Hostelling International locations around the city and this is the more night life oriented location. There's not a ton of character to it but it's practical for seeing the city. The dorm rooms have four beds, a bathroom inside and they recently redid the common area, which now resembles a cross between a cafe and a lounge. There are couches and chairs along with many tables and bars on each side. There is also a large kitchen and a bar. One thing is that it isn't the best neighborhood. I didn't really have any issues with it but I could see how some would.
