What Do I Need To Know About Hostels in San Francisco?

I'm going to be in San Francisco 10/30-11/2(ish. may stay a day or two more). I am attending a conference at Westin St. Francis. To save money, I want to stay in a hostel. There seems to be plenty in the immediate area. But I've never stayed in a hostel and I just don't know the area. What should I be looking for and what should I expect? [more inside]

Mom's day out in San Francisco

A new friend and I are spending Sunday without our babies in San Francisco. We are excited! But neither of us really know the city, and also we are used to doing child-centered things like going to parks or libraries or whatever, so our brains are mush. What do adults do in San Francisco besides the deYoung museum? Looking for offbeat, fun suggestions that don't totally break the bank. Thank you!

Looking for Union Square Restaurant Ideas

Coming to San Francisco next week for a conference and staying near Union Square. Looking for restaurant ideas for quick breakfasts, hour long lunches, and long lingering dinners within walking distance. I eat everything, and while cheap is good, good is more important. The only other time I've been in the city your recommendations for Bi-Rite and Tartine were spot-on, so let me know where I should go next. [more inside]

Place to store luggage near SF airport?

I am flying into San Francisco (SFO) airport early morning on Monday next week and have an entire day to sight-see before heading to Sunnyvale for work meetings next day. I would love to go see the Golden Bridge from the airport, however, I will have my luggage with me and it would be great if i could store it somewhere for about 6-8 hours and then pick it up on my way to Sunnyvale. Is this realistic and/or reasonable? This will be my first time visiting SF. Are there any recommendations where I can leave my stuff securely for a day? Thank you for your suggestions!

A chilled Thursday afternoon in San Francisco. What to do?

My wife, 12 year-old son and I will have a free afternoon and evening in San Francisco this coming Thursday. We fly in the afternoon before from the UK, will probably take bikes over the golden gate bridge in the morning, and we'd like to soak up a bit of SF in the afternoon and evening, before we head off on a road trip for the following three weeks. Yay! So what to do? Where to go? And perhaps somewhere relaxed and nice to eat in the evening? [more inside]

What to do in San Francisco with a 17-year-old girl?

I'm going to be in San Francisco tomorrow morning until Friday night to meet some relatives of mine from Sweden, along with my parents. Most of those two days are going to be spent with the family but my dad wants me to show my 17-year-old relative around so that we aren't with "the olds" the entire time. I haven't been to SF since I was 14. My friend told me to stop by the venue he works at, Thee Parkside. [more inside]

Bay Area beaches: out to murder me or what?

When and where in the SF Bay Area can I safely boogie board? Are there safer beaches? Safer tides? I see scary reports of several drownings a year, and it seems like all the beaches say, "Hazardous rip currents, if you go swimming you're an idiot." Baker Beach and Ocean beach don't seem especially hazardous to me, but the conventional wisdom is that they aren't safe for swimming. [more inside]
