The cleanness is very good, also the bathrooms are as clean as shared bathrooms can possibly be. Very good prices especually for longer stays. Best thing is the location: On the edge of Chinatiwn, next to little Itaky and the financial district too. Bus nearby. Ferry building and Fishermen's Wharf can be walked (10 / 20 Min). The free Wifi... More

The location is very convenient, just next to the China town, so right in the centre. Do not expect the parking, which was the mistake we did, but kind staff navigated us to the garage where we could park our car (for like 25 dollars / night ). We stayed in the double room with shared bathroom (and nice view... More

We didn't have any great expectations, but this hotel has been perfect for our visit to San Francisco. The hotel is situated right in between Chinatown and Little Italy, there's loads of good places around to have breakfast and dinner. Walkable distance to Fishermans Wharf, the Cable Cars and Union Square. The rooms weren't very big, if was just a... More

I was going through tons of places to stay and if you are like me, you would know that San Fran is insanely expensive when it comes to accommodation. If you want a hotel, you just have to pay for that kind of luxury in SF. I count myself lucky to land a room in this hotel. Despite comments about... More

This is a wonderfully clean hotel. You will be sharing a bathroom and shower with the entire floor of people so be sure to take shower shoes. It's also very noisy at night so be sure to bring earplugs if you are a light sleeper. The location is a major plus. Located just between Chinatown and North Beach you can... More

Room wasn't clean when I arrived, the woman in the reception didn't even give a "we're sorry", just a "you're welcome" on my thanks. Bed was very uncomfortable and noicy. Bad smell in the room. No A/C. On the plus side, the location is perfect, there are enough restrooms and showers and the pricing is ok.

For the very reasonable price paid, Hotel North Beach was good value. Shared bathrooms were of a very good standard, nice new fixtures and fittings. The room itself however, had an individual aroma. This did dissipate after a while though. Overall, average, good for travelling on a budget!
