business trip in Dallas, TX in May. Spent 4D/3N in San Francisco from 21 to 25 May 2008.
Although San Francisco is one of the more expensive cities in the US, you can still get a decent holiday with limited budget with good planning. There are very nice parks where you can walk around for free. Or during certain days, some museums offer free entry or local residents conduct free walking tours. The schedule can be found here. Public transportation is affordable and convenient in San Francisco. Nearly all interesting places in San Francisco is accessible via train or bus.
We stayed over at USA Hostel San Francisco. It was cheaper to reserve directly through their website and the location of the hostel is good. Moreover, I do not need to pay any deposit. Total, we spent about RM300 each for the three nights we were there. You can make free pancakes in the morning and free internet. Lockers are provided but please remember to bring your own locks and towels. Towels can be rented out at USD2 and locks can be bought from a convenience store nearby.
