    2 euro hostels? Can you recommend some names?

    One of my best experiences was meeting people in the Amsterdam hostel. To make that time all the more worthwhile, I met my long time hero Laviathan

    A few more sights to see in SF:

    -Annual run around the city naked festival

    -The Unofficial Gay capital of the world

    -Francis Ford Coppola's film studio, conveniently located near Chinatown.

    -The wild parrots of Telegraph Hill

    -As mentioned by Lunar, The world's crookedest street

    -For a panoramic view of the bay area, climb atop Twin Peaks: originally known as Breasts of the Indian Maiden

    Of course, no visit to SF would be complete without a trip to nearby Berkeley.

    Great, memorable experience. I was there for only 1.5 days. Next time it will definitely be longer.

    If you go there, do yourself a favor and stay at one of the popular hostels, such as the Flying Pig (voted the world's #1 hostel).

    no, OC is a county. L.A. is a city. Then you have the city of Orange and L.A. county.


    Babe, you can spend a night at my place if you decide to come to Cali. Im sure my mother wont mind.
    Due to several complaints, I will stop using the terms "Babe" and "Baby" in reference to our female counterpart. They will now be replaced with "B*tch."

    Garden Grove and Westminster are cities in O.C. which is a county next to L.A. county.

    I checked on the web and it looks like prices have gone up. Seems to be closer to 10 euros now - still not a bad deal. In Europe, you could get a membership that reduced the price even more, but I haven't been able to find any information on it. Check this site and maybe pick up the free pocket guide mentioned in the bottom right corner.

    http://www.hostelworld.com/

    I had a travel book with lots of good information like the hostel membership, but I gave it away after my trip and I can't remember what it was called.

    Just found this one that might be worth checking out too.
