Guess what? Sausalito is also named and spelled San Francisco Bay Area - It is the same destination. Goodbye confusion.
Sausalito is a small, bayside town with many personalities. On one hand, it is rustic, artistic, and maintains undercurrents of the counterculture community it once was. On the other hand, it can be posh, pricey, and sickly sweet, so it's great to have the option of getting a hostel in the area.
The first town north of the Golden Gate Bridge, Sausalito has much to offer the hosteler. While the downtown area along Bridgeway, lined with waterfront shops and restaurants, is a main tourist attraction, much more can be found off the beaten path. Historically, Sausalito has been known for everything from shipbuilding to bootlegging to houseboat hippies to seafood. Now, it’s a mixed plate.
For excellent dining and cozy cafes with the locals, choose Caledonia Street. Nearby, houseboat communities and art studios, and sometimes a combination of the two, rest by the bay. For a view of the Golden Gate like you’ve never seen it before, head to the Hawk Hill lookout, complete with great views, a historical bunker, and raptor sightings. Hikers and surfers can find a groovy refuge at Rodeo Beach, fondly called “Cronkhite” after the military fort by its shores; if you are looking for a Sausalito hostel, you will find options near here. Camping may also be an option and day hikes to Hill 88 or the Point Bonita light house come highly recommended.
To get in, go by car, bus, or bike across the bridge from San Francisco. To get around, walking and biking are best because parking can be hard to come by while bike rentals are bountiful. Scenic bike paths and trails are everywhere and lead to picnic-worthy bay front parks. Golden Gate Transit offers bus service around town and also connects Sausalito to other natural and cultural destinations in the North Bay Area, such as beautiful West Marin and wine country. Sausalito is a rewarding destination explored by itself or in addition to San Francisco and the rest of the North Bay.

Sausalito sits just over the Golden Gate bridge from San Francisco. It's a wonderful port town with higher-end shops, good seafood, and pubs and bars. There are tons of sailboats in several marinas. There is a nice ferry to San Francisco. I'm a native of Marin County -- it is filled with mostly friendly people driving expensive cars. Pretty sites include Marin Headlands looking over to (I'm a native) and Golden Gate Bridge, Angle Island (good day trip/hike), Tiburon, and Sausalito Waterfront. Muir woods has gigantic Redwoods and Mt. Tam wonderful hiking. The best close beach is Stinson. Enjoy!
What a place! Unforgettable.
Wonderful wildlife, and nearby towns, a nice cozy environment.
