San Francisco: Backpacking
For those looking to visit California and San Francisco on a budget, staying in hostels and backpacking around the State is a good option. You’ll find hostels in San Francisco that cater to backpackers in several areas – from downtown to Fisherman’s Wharf. You can expect to pay around $20 - $30 for a bed in a dorm, depending on the time of year. Some San Franciscan backpacking hostels include breakfast with the accommodation. If you pre-book your accommodation with the hostel online you may get a slightly better rate. If you are planning a holiday to San Francisco as a backpacker you’ll need to be careful which hostel you use, as some of the less expensive ones are in or near the rougher areas of town.
