I was in SF for 3 days. Hotel was in very good localization,Owner was very nice too,but room was so tiny,smelly and simply awful. Seriously I dont need exclusive hotel,I travel with my backpack through the States and I just wanted something clean. Hotel looks good on the photos but in reality is really old(not in the good,vintage way). Bathroom... More

At the Day of our arrival we got a mail from the hotel saying that they can't provide us a night even though we made reservation 2 months ahead. Very unprofessional. Won't recommend to stay there. We are very disappointed and we won't come here again.

I would really recommend this place. Good price, perfect location (5 mins from my business office), clean. For its level, hotel is very good. It's not the hotel for the family/couples, but totally fine for 1-3 days stay for business/having fun purposes.

Good and extremely cheap place to stay in San Francisco. Don't expect Hilton quality for such price, but it costs its money. What is important: take taxi from the airport, because you may get lost the first time :)

I wouldn't recommend this place to anyone, it was an absolute nightmare. I didn't expect much for the price I paid, I am a very down to earth person, but this place was disgusting. The whole hotel is falling apart, it stank like everyone in there would smoke weed, the matress had a hole in it (a huge one) and... 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...
