We stayed here for 3 nights as a small part of an extended trip. We chose it for the location; accomodation in SF is not cheap and this was a way to see the city on a budget. I read the reviews beforehand and understood you get what you pay for and I am usually fine with this (especially for 3 nights), but in this case I wish I had paid the price to be somewhere else. This hotel is in a very dodgy part of town. The stretch of Market St from the hotel into town is run down and full of homeless people and gangs. When I say full, I mean hundreds. It is totally unsafe to walk at night. When sleeping at night all you can hear is shouting and police sirens, and one evening the police actually turned up to the hotel due to some incident in the room next door to us. The rooms themselves were fine considering the price we paid, and the breakfast was really good but I felt so unsafe. We took valuables and passports out with us every night because we geniunely expected that the room would be robbed at some point. I would avoid this one and pay a bit more to be in a nicer area.
