Book Now You’re planning to visit us - great! Pacific Tradewinds has the best location in the heart of San Francisco. Just step outside our door and you’re close to Chinatown, North Beach (Little Italy) and the California Street Cable Cars. In fact, you can frequently hear the familiar San Francisco sound of the cable car bell from the hostel. This section contains detailed directions on how to get to us by plane, train, bus or automobile. If there is a form of transportation we've forgotten, let us know.
