GETTING TO THE HOSTEL FROM THE AIRPORT, GREYHOUND, OR AMTRAK
From the airport-
  • There are numerous shuttle companies. We have a special deal with Airport Express SF and they will drive you to the Green Tortoise Hostel for $15 per person. You need to book directly through them and tell them that you are staying at the Green Tortoise. Their number 415-775-5121. It would be best to call them at Baggage Claim and have them pick you up there. If you cannot contact them, find them upstairs at Arrivals at "Ground Transportation". They drive shuttles until 9:45 pm.
  • There are other shuttles that will drive you here 24/7 and cost around $20 per person.
  • You can take the subway (called BART, $9.65) Their last train leaves SFO at 11:45pm. 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 in the Sales Force Tower at 425 Mission Street. If you prefer to take a taxi, the fare should be less than $10. Otherwise, you can walk (25 - 30 min.) - walk North 1st street to Market, cross Market and continue on Battery Street. Turn left on Broadway and walk about 4 blocks to Broadway and Kearny, we are on the right side. Or you can take the city MUNI bus #10 or #12 ($2.75) from the corner of 2nd St. and Stevenson St. It will drop you at Pacific St. and Kearny St. Walk 1 block up Kearny St. 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 Financial District drop off at the Hyatt Regency Hotel would be the closest, about a 15 minute walk. Walk down California St. to Kearny St. then turn right and continue up Kearny St. until Broadway St.
PARKING
  • We do not provide parking, but can offer you deals at nearby garages.
  • We do not recommend having a car while you are in San Francisco. Parking is a hassle, and we have a great public transportation.
  • If you are going to have a car while you are here we recommend you pay to park at a garage. We have a deal with a parking garage a few blocks away- $20 overnight for standard sized cars, $30 and up for oversize vehicles. That is about half the price of all the other lots around us.
  • You will need to collect a coupon from us first at the front desk to get this price. We have a loading zone, conveniently located right outside the hostel, where you can unload your car and come pick up the coupon.
Please don't hesitate to email or phone if you have any more questions.
Safe travels!
