Spending a long weekend in the Bay Area ? Here's what I managed to do in 4 days in this wonderful city.
Quick background : I arrived at Oakland and spent two days with family in the North Bay.
From there, there are different ways to get to the city. I chose the 40min ride on the Ferry from Larkspur, which cost me $10,50.
Took the bus to get to the hostel. FYI - buses have machines that don’t give money back so you need exact change. Know this before going in, I was not aware and I almost had to give a $5 to this freaking machine. Eventually someone saw my desperate face and gave me some change, thank you stranger !
I stayed at SF International Hostel, couldn’t be in a better location, right behind Market St, tons of buses to everywhere, easy walk to the Pier and Chinatown. And as things could not get better, the hostel was pretty empty and I had a 8 beds dorm with bathroom for myself and another girl !
--> 3 nights for $90
