"Clean & value for money" Green Tortoise Hostel - San Francisco Tip by sfyam

Green Tortoise Hostel - San Francisco, San Francisco: 685 reviews and 5 photos


I spent 4 nights in this hostel, and I just love the atmosphere for the staff are very helpful and friendly. They share with you travelling tips, budgeting ways to get around (better than guidebooks) and for they are also travellers. You will be amazed some of them are great chef too.

Unique Qualities: I had a private room to myself. The room is located on 3rd floor with no attached bathroom but there were many pillows. Plus points are you get free WIFI, free daily breakfast and free alternate night dinner which help to save some bucks for travelling. It is conveniently located at North Beach, walking distance to Chinatown and Columbus Tower. Whatelse could you ask for at that price?
