Friendly staff, great location & competitive rates - you could do a lot worse! We were a little sceptical about staying outside of the main tourist areas but Hayes Valley was awesome and I'd stay in this neighbourhood again. More bars and restaurants than you can possibly visit in a week and all good quality. Some great craft beer house... More

We know SF well, and decided to stay here for two reasons: price and location. We had no illusions about the European style, and it is exactly as advertised. Smallish queen bed room, toilet and bath across the hall (generally clean and available), traffic noise, and the restaurant/bars dumping their recyclables after midnight. That said, the price is fantastic, the... More

Stayed here for five nights, I cannot fault the location or the hotel. The Hotel team were friendly and helpful, Rooms were small with bed, Sink, Wardrobe and set of drawers. Didn't have any issues with the shared bathroom. The breakfast room was a great place to meet other travellers, had a bit of a laugh at breakfast but also... More

If you are seeking affordable accommodations in a fantastic neighborhood of great restaurants, this is it! Accommodations are simple. I had one of the smaller rooms, with a bed and a sink. Shared bathroom is down the hall, but I rarely had to wait more than a minute or two. The bed was very comfortable. Breakfast was great, from the... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for 4 nights. We loved it so much, we cancelled our hotel reservation for the last two nights across town to continue our stay here. Why we loved it: - The staff (hi Dennis!) could not have been more friendly with directions, airport shuttles, travel tips. - the free breakfast and afternoon tea are... More

The place is a good value, clean, well located. The only issue was that of the shared bathroom but we were warned beforehand. The staff was great, very helpful and they even mailed us back the sweater we forgot in the room, which was very kind of them.

A friendly, quiet and clean hotel. Staff were very helpful. We enjoyed the breakfast along with the free coffee and biscuits available from 4.00pm until 11.00pm. Although bathrooms and WCs were shared, we did have a sink in the room. A bit far out from the waterfront, but near good bus routes, so not a real issue. Plenty of restaurants... More

Pros: - Very low rates for San Francisco average. - Nice area with a plenty of restaurants, coffee shops etc. However, it's not very central, you have to get to downtown by car or public transport. - Helpful and very kind staff. - Free wi-fi in the room. Cons: - Three floors and no elevator. - Very dated interiors, though... More

Staff was very kind and helpful. Great breakfast. Shared bathrooms were always clean and fresh. It was easy for us to walk to bus and tram stops for transportation to other parts of the city. We enjoyed a concert at Davies Symphony Hall only two blocks away. My son left his Ipod in the room and the staff sent it... More
