    After travelling across NZ, Oz, Fiji and San Francisco for the past six months I had experienced my fair share of hostels. Green tortoise was by far the best hostel I've ever stayed in. First off the beds were so comfy, thick mattresses nice warm...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.
