I arrived in San Francisco hours before leaving Melbourne today, thanks to the International Dateline. It's fun being a time traveller! Getting from the airport to downtown San Francisco was easy enough on the train ($4) and then another $1.25 to get a bus up to the Green Tortoise hostel in North Beach. Don't be fooled, it's not actually located on a beach but this suburb is really central to all the places of interest and an ideal hostel location.

As soon as I checked in ($20 per night) I could see why this place is so popular. It had a very bohemian atmosphere and the staff were very knowledgeable and helpful. The only disadvantage was the location of my dorm room... right above a night club... and it was Friday. Ear plugs - don't leave home without them!
