Hostelling International San Francisco Downtown (HI San Francisco Downtown) is auctioning its VIP suite for a 4-night stay during the Super Bowl, February 4-8. Located near Union Square, the room is up for bid through January 28, at 8:00 pm (PST). All proceeds benefit HI USA’s Outdoor Hostel Adventures program, which helps at-risk Bay Area youth to expand their horizons by experiencing the natural world.
The private apartment-style VIP suite is typically not open to the public, and this is a rare opportunity to have your Super Bowl stay make a lasting local impact. At the “buy now” of price of $7,500, the winning bid can help up to 80 local youth participate in OHA. Additionally, a portion of the winning bid may be tax deductible to the extent of the law.
“We have a large population of Bay Area youth who are trapped in their neighborhoods. Outdoor Hostel Adventures has the potential to break the confines of their thoughts and their goals,” says Danielle Brumfitt, Northwest Vice President of Hostelling International USA (HI USA), the national nonprofit that operates the hostel. “The winning bidder will undoubtedly leave a long-lasting legacy for residents of the Bay Area.”
The room features its own fully-equipped kitchen, and the package includes a private cycling tour along San Francisco’s picturesque waterfront and across the iconic Golden Gate Bridge. The winning bidder will also have the opportunity to experience HI San Francisco Downtown’s free walking tours of Chinatown and the Mission District, as well as other locally inspired activities offered during their stay.
