***IMPORTANT*** - READ RSVP instructions below or at

RSVP *required* here:

Mix and Mingle with other international female travelers & au pairs. Every Monday, Wednesday and Friday we have a free, vegetarian group dinner for all hostel guests. We have temporarily decided to open this event up on Friday night to all international female travelers in SF in an effort to connect solo female travelers with one another. Join us in our safe, fun international living room space where you are welcome to bring your own drinks. Enjoy a home-cooked vegetarian meal in our San Francisco hostel where you can connect with like-minded, international female travelers & au pairs. Then join a wide range of other international travelers as everyone from the hostel heads to the bar downstairs at 9PM to compete for their country at the SF Beer/Wine/Spirit Olympics. At 8:55PM, we will organize teams before heading out to the bar.

And yes, the dinner portion of the event is for INTERNATIONAL FEMALES ONLY. All others are welcome to join us at Horizon Bar at 9PM, which is below the hostel (Horizon doors open at 9PM - enter Horizon THROUGH Score Bar at 490 Broadway St. since Horizon is closed except when SFHostelParty's SF Beer/Wine/Spirit PopUp event is happening.)
