For my first solo trip, I went to San Francisco. Of course, with any city, there are sketchy areas to avoid, but generally, I felt really safe. The city is very easy to navigate and I was able to get around quite easily.Posted: February 8, 2024
It was fairly safe! Although, I went back to my hostel when it got dark and I used Uber half the time for transportation. If you love seafood, I highly recommend Swan Osyter Depot (get there as early as you can because the wait can take long)! For dim sum, I recommend Good Mong Kok Bakery! If you like relaxing and sightseeing, just walking through Crissy Field East Beach is calm ans scenic. stayed at Green Tortoise hostel. 🐢 The staff and people there were friendly! The hostel was calm and cozy even though it was next to bars and nightclubs. Absolutely enjoyed my time there overall!Posted: January 23, 2024Experienced: November, 2023
After my Work and Travel program in USA I have saved some money to travel to other states and big metropolitans. San Francisco was one of the most vibrant and dynamic cities i’ve ever seen! Me and my friend were staying in the city for 3 days but I recommend staying more if you have time. They have one of the most beautiful ChinaTown in the States because it’s the oldest one. I recommend taking more time to explore ChinaTown, vintage shops and authentic asian restaurants! I would also recommend visiting JapanTown and Golden Gate Park! The safety is moderate, and I would not recommend traveling at night alone.Posted: December 20, 2023
I was in San Francisco alone and mainly traveled by buses and walked on foot. I found this place to be very safe, although of course there are many homeless people with mental health problems there, but none of them approached me.Posted: July 8, 2023
I definitely advise against going to the Tenderloin area alone. I felt safe everywhere else, but after just a few blocks in the wrong direction, I was followed and accosted several times. I highly recommend visiting Alcatraz, but make sure to buy tickets in advance as they always sell out quickly.Posted: May 19, 2023
I grew up 2 hrs south of SF so this is the closest major city I interacted with. I’m a native Californian as well , so making a trip into the city was something we did every few months during the early 2000´s, and when I became an adult, I made monthly visits there. It has always been unsafe in SF (I have a vivid memory of my mother get attacked by a disturbed homeless woman without any warning when I was 5yrs old). But even since my childhood, it has become progressively worse. I have now traveled through most of Europe and some pts of the Middle East solo during my early 20’s and still I can say with absolute certainty that SF is the most dangerous (and unhygienic) city I have ever been in: human feces, needles and condoms on the sidewalk, people walking in front of cars and laying in the road because they are so high and unaware, being verbally harassed and threatened by psychotic individuals on public transport, being grabbed physically by desperate people when you turn a corner and are the only one on the street, the list goes on. I was there a few months ago and it’s even worse than the last time. There is a reason why most businesses have left SF and people are moving out. It’s a city that lost its soul owing to the corruption and misguided policies of every SF mayor.Posted: February 22, 2024
I have lived in San Francisco for 30 years. I know it is getting a bad wrap lately, but truth be told it’s like any other big city. Be smart, don’t walk around flashing your $$ belongings, and everything will be fine. With regard to the homelessness, it is true, but it is mostly in the Tenderloin & nearby areas. It’s not dangerous, it’s just very sad. I am comfortable walking through there during the daytime. I would not at night time just to be safe.Posted: February 21, 2024

I spent two days in San Francisco in August. I must mention that the weather was surprisingly cool, so you should take long clothes even in August. We slept in the Zeppelin Hotel, cute and pleasant. A beautiful and interesting city, I enjoyed the walk along the boardwalk, lots of shops and restaurants. I highly recommend going up for an amazing view of the whole city from the Coit tower, it was amazing!Posted: November 24, 2023Experienced: July, 2023
When I went alone to San Francisco, I rented a car and drove along the coast on route number 1. It was stunning. But most importantly, I spent the night in Half Moon Bay, and it was absolutely the best decision I made during my entire trip. It's a small seaside town south of San Francisco, with amazing seafood and beautiful views of cliffs and beaches. I definitely recommend stopping in this town.Posted: April 9, 2023
Hey ladies! I’m Julia and moving into a crypto nomad phase of life. Previously I was philosophy & cs at Harvard, founded and failed my own edutech startup and seriously competed in Latin dance once upon a time. Have always wanted to join a community of sisters and super looking forward to meeting you :D
Based in the US but love travelling every year. It's hard to pick my next destination. My favorite things are to wander around, get lost in a new place, and eat all the delicious food.
Hello! I am eager to begin a several month traveling adventure. To kick off my trip, I am hoping to spend some time in different cities and get advice on where to go from locals! I am low maintenance, understanding, clean, and communicative.
