HI - San Francisco Downtown (Union Square) Reviews


A block from the excitement of Union Square, in the theater district, this hostel (formerly the Hotel Virginia) provides private and small dorm rooms. Right outside the front door is a variety of restaurants, shops, and art galleries. Union Square is a great place to people-watch or enjoy a picnic under the palm trees. Just two blocks away at Powell and Market Streets are the world-famous cable cars, which will give you a breathtaking ride to Fisherman's Wharf and the Bay. You'll also find convenient public transportation to most areas of the city.
