Our on-site cafe, Cafe Franco, has beautiful bay views and dishes up free continental breakfast, as well as lunch and dinner. We have a spacious, fully equipped kitchen, and our dining room doubles as a rec room, with a pool table and jukebox.

The large, comfortable guest lounge has a fireplace and park views, and our media room has a widescreen satellite TV, DVDs, and theater-style seating. Enjoy our outdoor deck with umbrella tables, and of course there's a National Park at your doorstep!

We offer free, fast WiFi in all of our guest rooms and common areas, plus we have internet terminals available for rent.

Activities and Tours

We know that travelers choose to stay in hostels not just to save money, but to meet other travelers! That's why we offer daily activities (walking tours, pub crawls, dinners, movies) where hostellers can mingle, explore the city, or get a local's advice. For more, see Hostel Activities.

We also partner with local tour operators to offer trips to Muir Woods, Wine Country, Yosemite, Monterey/Carmel, and more. See Day Trips.

“If you want character, good prices and a great location, this is the place.”
