Street View


From the airport - You can either take an airport shuttle ($19-20) or the subway (called BART, $8.65) We use American Airporter shuttle just give the driver our address, 494 Broadway Street and he will drop you at our door.
The BART is also fairly easy - take any train except the Millbrae train and get off at the Montgomery St. station. From there, walk north on Montgomery St. to Broadway. Make a left on Broadway and you will find the hostel on the right hand side of the street, at the corner of Broadway and Kearny. The walk takes about 15 minutes
The Greyhound station is located on Folsom and Main streets. If you prefer to take a taxi the fare should be less than $10. Otherwise, you can walk (25-30 min.) - walk east on Folsom street and turn left on Embarcadero. Walk up Embarcadero and turn left on Broadway and walk about 6 blocks to Broadway and Kearny, we are on the right side. Or you can take the city MUNI bus #41 ($2.00) from the corner of Main and Howard. It will drop you by the Condor bar on Broadway and Columbus. Walk 1 block to 494 Broadway.
There is no train depot in the city so the Amtrak shuttle bus will leave you at the drop-off point of your choice. The Ferry Building is closest to the hostel, about a 15 minute walk. Once there, you need to walk north on Embarcadero towards Broadway. Turn left on Broadway and walk until you reach the intersection of Broadway and Kearny.
