I read awful reviews about this place, so I had really low expectations. I actually tried cancelling after reading about bugs and rodents, but I would have had to pay for this place plus another. We booked this place because of its budget-friendly rate ($50 online) and because of it being only a 10 minute walk to the embarcadero. I... More

The place is full of flying and crawling insects everywhere: in the bathroom, in the corridor, in our room, on the walls, and (!) ticks in bed. And yes, they bite and suck our blood. Terrible place. Not worth it at all

We stayed here for 1 night, and only for sleeping. It has a good location and rooms are fine. It is also clean. Internet runs well, and the staff is also nice and helpful. It was cheap so was totally worth it.

... but maybe in the whole world. If I had the chance to go somewhere else during these 3 nights, I would have been grateful to leave. Not only the badbugs, the extremely loud music over 4 different striptease bars in its corner, but the terrible condition of room interior. After first night we asked to change room - was... More

If I couldn't give it no star I would. This place cost us $90 for the night but I've stayed in a $49 hotel and had a better experience than this. Firstly we arrived at the hotel and to the left was a brothel and to the right was an adults shop followed by a massive flight of stairs with... More

We wanted something cheap and near harbour in SF but this place was just horrible. All people there are junkies or really weird, we didnt feel safe, our room was dirty and with bedbugs. Shared bathrooms at the hallway are one big disaster. Dont you ever stay there

You would definately expect more for that price. Little bit smelly. The receptionists are not very serviceminded. There was no air conditioning in the room. The shared restrooms are ok, expected worde. It's would be an ok budget stay if the price was lower.

Disgusting! Most terrible and grossest place I have been to all my life! Room is full of bugs and mice, loud surrounding... I don't even know where to start. Cleanliness is a big issue! Never, never consider a stay here! It's not worth any penny!

Staying in North Beach / Telegraph Hill

Neighborhood Profile
North Beach / Telegraph Hill
The aroma of freshly roasted coffee beans, the sounds of opera, and the sights of the romantic Italian ristorante come together to create the charming neighborhood of North Beach, once the stomping grounds for the Beatnik Generation. Although parts of North Beach are known for nightlife that’s not always suitable for younger visitors, few neighborhoods in the city exude as much European charm and style. Peruse a bookstore for the literature of Kerouac, Ferlinghetti and Ginsberg, grab some gelato and head to Washington Square for a perfect afternoon of people watching. Just east of North Beach, the hills and staircases of Telegraph Hill are a unique delight. At its peak, the art deco Coit Tower provides sweeping panoramic views of the bay and city. The beautifully landscaped Filbert Street Steps, a street too steep for a roadway, rewards those willing to hike uphill. Keep your ears open and you might even hear the squawk of the wild parrots who call this neighborhood home.
