English Language Institute has two campuses located in beautiful downtown San Francisco: Union Square and Polk Street. Many of our housing partners are located a short distance from both campuses.

Residence Hotels and Hostels are similar to living in your own apartment, but without the obligation of a long-term lease. Arrangements can be made on a weekly or monthly commitment, depending on the length of your study at ELI. Residence hotels and hostels include many of the amenities you would expect to find in your own apartment—including access to a kitchen, laundry, cleaning service, and wifi. Some even offer free daily breakfast.

Home Stays are a great way to practice your English outside the classroom and find housing that fits your budget. San Francisco is a welcoming and cosmopolitan city. Many families and individuals enjoy hosting international students.

Use the links below to find a wonderful residence hotel or home stay in San Francisco. Most of them offer exclusive discounts to ELI students—make sure to apply using the forms provided on each page!*

*Offer valid only for students who are enrolled in English Language Institute.
