Green Tortoise -San Francisco and Seattle
 
Heading to San Fran or Seattle? Green Tortoise is your best bet. It's a legendary hostel/tour Co, they've been around since 60s, very busker-friendly. you can get a free night for doing a show, or trade for housekeeping on weekdays, you can bring your own beer, free computers and wi-fi, they have smoking rooms (anything goes), SF has a sauna and they both are right in the middle of nightlife, great public transportation etc. My favorite place to hang out nearby in SF is "Saloon" on Grant St - awesome blues-club, free admission, and in Seattle - Noc-Noc on 2d ave - best happy hour-1$ beer, 2$ mixed drinks and super-cheap appetisers 5-9pm. If you are staying in Seattle - say hi to Shawn, the banjo-man from Pike Market, he stays in GT on weekends, he'll give you all the local info. If you stay in SF - buy ear-plugs, it gets super-loud on Fri-Saturday with Broadway revelers, and the hostel blasts urban music downstairs... (it used to be a mellow hippy hostel, what happened?). Both have free dinners twice a week and free breakfast every day, coffee anytime. Do not leave beer in the fridge - it dissapers like magic!Peace yall.
