We stayed here as we were on a budget and this seemed to fit the bill. However it is not a pleasant place to stay, doesn't look or smell like it has been cleaned in a long time. The sheets were filthy, blind was broken so couldn't close it and that was also filthy. I have never slept in a... More

We got very good price when booking in advance. We stayed during the week and after a long travel around California we came back. For the weekend was a bit more expensive but worthy as we didn't spend extra money on commuting. Is close to walk to the main SFO places, as long you like to walk through SF hills.... More

This hotel gets an average rating because it is an older building with small rooms and it isn't luxury. However, the staff are extremely friendly and helpful. The location was excellent, walking distance to cable car on Hyde or Powell, the BART, several restaurants and on bus routes to Union Square or other landmarks. If you want luxury, don't book...

It is in an awesome location and the staff is very helpful. Check-in/out process is easy and the rooms are clean... but tiny and fairly simple. Which is what you should expect unless you wanna pay double the price.

If you don't have high expectations, this place is fine, been in a super expensive city as San Francisco, finding this hotel saved my life. It is true that it's an old building, with an elevator that reminds me an old horror movie, but to be honest, I enjoyed it every time. The location couldn't be better, there is a... More

Terribly dirty and dark room (bathroom was a lot cleaner). Stains on the bedsheets, filthy windows, horrible old smell, untuned tv. Thankfully we had our sleeping bags from a camping trip and ended up sleeping in those on top of all the bed linen...no way we were getting under those covers! Staff were also unhelpful and frankly, a bit weird.... More

Staff was great. Rooms size was ok for 1 person. Baths had been updated. Stains on shower and window curtains. My friend reacted as soon as she entered the building and said it was due to mold. 4-5 stairs to get hotel. That was tough for dragging suitcases. I would not stay here again

Booked in a hurry without studying reviews. Thick layers of dust, cobwebs, dirty paint. Never again. Funky dirty smell. OK, the bathroom is pretty clean, but the fan sounds like a jet airplane taking off and if you want the light on you get the fan.

Absolutely disgusting. You get what you pay for but don´t use this hotel in San Francisco. This place needs a good clean and updates. Tolet seat in the bathroom was absolutely disgusting and needs replacement.
