My room was small but had a sink, TV and microwave. The toilets and showers are in the hallway and were clean. Although rooms are basic the price is excellent. Staff very nice. Excellent location in an area with bars, restaurants etc about 20 mins walk from the BART station and ferry building. I loved staying here the building had... More

Price and location can't be beat. There aren't many cheaper private rooms in SF. North Beach area is great for food and nightlife. Even Fisherman's Wharf and Alcatraz Tour boat were within walking distance. Room is basic but a private room with fridge and microwave. Bathroom and shower are shared, and although the shower/bathroom to guestroom ratio was not that... More

On our road trip though the US the prices were sky rocketing in San Fransisco, this is why we ended up in this Hotel. Probably for normal prices this would be great value for money, but when we were there it was not. There was nothing wrong with the hotel itself. The location is just great, right spot on in... More

I've stayed at this hotel several times over the past few years and have always had a very comfortable and pleasant stay. The rooms have TV, fridge, microwave, phone, & desk and are spotlessly clean. You have all you need for a quiet night in, or if you want to go out, there are so many restaurants in the North... More

We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights, it was an amazing location (round the corner from City Lights, Vesuvio's and Chinatown). It was also in walking distance to pretty much everything. And on all the transport links too. I liked the laundry facilities and felt safe in the hotel, we met somebody doing his laundry who had lived the... More

Picked this hotel primarily due to cost and location for one night. As is with most cases, you get what you pay for. Bathrooms are shared, and when I visited I wasn't fond of the toilets as they didn't smell so clean. The shower was pretty decent, though. The room was clean and so were the sheets and pillows. There... More

Good value for your money : - Great location : the North beach area is nice and safe. (You should NOT pick a hotel located in the area of Tenderloin/ Civic Center/ South of Union Square. Those areas are not safe, really , just don't) - Very Clean Room : I was in one of the single bed room without... More

If you are looking for a place to stay close to The Emracadero and Fisherman's Wharf, and you dont really bother about super standard, this is a perfect place for a couple of nights. Decent price, helpfull service and 10 min walk to the Pier 39.
