About Green Tortoise Hostel

Why green tortoise?

More for your money, free guest computers and WiFi! Free full breakfast daily! Free dinners three times per week! Free under bed lockers! Free sauna! Free tour information! Best facilities! Clean, fun, safe with world travelers and adventurers and international staff of travel folks just like you.
All this and a great location to be yourself in the city by the bay.

We know our hostel is the best value for your euro, dollar or peso. When you stay here you feel like a part of our family. We may not tuck you in, but we take care of you like no other place you've been before. It's our mission to make your stay in San Francisco the best possible. If you need anything, all you have to do is ask us and we'll help without hesitation.

To make here feel like home: we have no curfew, we do have a huge communal kitchen, a giant turn of the century ballroom with pool and foosball, a piano, cable TV, a bike rack and quiet places to fill in the journals of your travels. The rooms are all non-smoking with large lockers under the beds to store your gear safely, comfy beds with reading lights, self locking doors and new friends to meet. Our private rooms provide a chic hostel experience and a few have TV’s and a large selection of movies so you can chill out and have quiet time with your travel mate.

We are in a fantastic location. You came to San Francisco to explore and there is no better place to start than in our own neighborhood, north beach (little Italy), famous for entertainment, book stores, and beat generation history. The hostel is only a few moments walk to Chinatown, a short walk along the San Francisco Bay to Fisherman’s Wharf, as well as located one block from public transportation to take you all over the bay area. Our friendly staff will take the time to give you a free map and directions to anywhere you wish to spend your day. They are also full of suggestions on what’s cool to do in San Francisco on any given day!
