For my second trip in SF, my goal was to find the cheap hotel in a good quality. Very tidy rooms. Good and clean bathroom. If you want to have cheap but good place to stay - it's one of the best options.

I have stayed in some of the poorest places on earth but nothing has come close to the total dump that is the Sweden House "Hotel"...this is NOT a hotel! At best this s**t hole is a halfway house. Wen to check-in and the guy had no idea how to do anything so we had to wait for the "manager",... More

'This is the worst place I have never stayed, aera is unsecured, hotel is uncleaned & very low standard, in my own case I had no electricity & poor access to wife' In one word, this hotel must be avoided

As pretty much the cheapest place to stay downtown I wasn't expecting it to be amazing. I'd read the reviews on here and was actually quite nervous about staying here. We arrived around 6pm and were expecting somewhere to park as the website we booked with said there was parking. However we had to park the car in the parking... More

Terrible. I booked with a friend of mine to share a double room and all our experience was terrible, for the same amount of money you can book something wayyyy better, like the Orange Hostel, HI Hostel, Green Tortoise, etc First of all, they don't say in their website that if you check in later than 10pm you will be...

Reading the reviews of this hotel is actually quite unbelievable after staying 5 nights here! We stayed in a private room with shared bathroom / shower. The bathrooms where good, not private which was a tiny bit annoying, shower was a private room which is fine. Females get their own facilities. The staff are very helpful with anything, even managed... More

Bad neighbourhood. Hotel is dirty but the room was okay and quit modern. Unfortunately a dirty shower and too dirty toilet. Wouldnt come here next time and prefer to pay some more bucks for an other hostel or hotel.

Categorically never stay here! It is an unsafe environment for anyone nevermind females. Cannabis smoking is common place inside and out. Fire doors are propped open allowing anyone access to the building. Shady "hotel" in an even shadier neighbourhood. Beyond unhygienic, bona fide health hazard. As seasoned backpackers, we are used to an element of roughing it. However, we lasted... More

We booked for 3 nights and stayed for just 1. We were lucky - we'd been camping in Yellowstone so we had sleeping bags and roll mats. There's no way we would have gone near the bed. The shower was hot - good point. Bad point - I don't know when it had last been cleaned. There was a ball... More
