    The Green Tortoise is largely a place for the younger folks, ones who are generally more agreeable to bunk room situations. I'm not, but the Green Tortoise does have about five single rooms in a separate building, just a couple of blocks from the main...More

    I had a great stay at the green tortoise. There were many social events but the rooms were calm - when I didn't partake I got a good night's sleep. It felt sociable but not like you might expect a "party hostel" to be. The...More

    North Beach / Telegraph Hill
    The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds
    of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian
    ristorante come together to create the charming
    neighbourhood of North Beach, once the stomping
    grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of
    North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always
    suitable for younger visitors, few neighbourhoods in
    the city exude as much European charm and style.
