Good place to tay, convenient location, safe al most except midnight, clean bed, room & bathroom, thanks the authority for good maintainance. Better if they add some more furnitures in rooms, plenty of natural light in room, ac was working nicely

Okay first the only pro, there was pot everywhere, you'd take a step outside and there'd be a guy selling you some. so if you're into that, you won't care about the cons... But there's a few, 1) it's location is bad. In two ways; it's in a really dodgey area of San Francisco, didn't really feel safe walking alone... More

a girlfriend and i stayed here in 1999. i still refer to it as the worst place i have ever stayed (as covered in other reviews: paper thin walls, disgusting bedding, people throwing up in the shared bathroom, super dodgy homeless area) and out of curiosity i looked it up on trip advisor to see if it was still around....

Cheap place by San Francisco standards and it shows. I stayed here for a week with my boyfriend after traveling up the coast. We were in a tiny room with bunk beds, even though we booked a double. The room was opposite a shared bathroom and the walls were paper thin. Across the hall was a massive dorm filled with... More

Where do we start......... We stayed here for a total of 8 hours before leaving. The sign at the reception stated that if we checked out early there was no refund, obviously they are used to people leaving this horrible, disgusting excuse for accommodation. a) The Area. To set the scene, walking to the hostel we saw a couple having... More

No seriously, we tried to save some money but this was not worth the fungus, dirt, lack of sleep etc. Stayed in a private room featuring nothing but a double bed with a V-shaped mattress with stained sheets, forcing my girlfriend and I to sleep on top of each other in a noisy ditch. Don't bother putting a damper on... More

Located in a really dodgy area (tour guide from a tour I did the day after I checked in literally told us to AVOID the area as it's quite unsafe!). I checked in early in the evening, still daylight, but as a solo female traveller, I have to say I felt pretty unsafe. Once I got inside, it was very... More

The house is quite close to city center and among the cheapest we found in SF. The main concern is safety in the neighboring area. Roaming the nearby area in the night should be avoided for safety. The rooms were okay. Not very cleaned but okay for a short stay. The kitchen was not maintained well and cleanliness was a... More

We stayed two weeks in a double room, which was defiantly too long. It wasn't the worst place I ever stayed at but there are some very big issues with this place, if you are only planing on staying two or three nights, its okay but any longer: Go somewhere else!! First the good things: Friendly staff, free wi-fi not... More
