Bad, bad neighbourhood. It's just on the edge of the Tenderloin which, during the day, is fine. At night however it's a different story. I walked to the end of the block at around 8pm one evening to go to the small grocery store and didn't feel particularly safe doing so. The sirens at night are non-stop, there is so much noise coming off the street it's difficult to sleep. "Free breakfast" consisted of coffee from what I could see, and I wasn't aware of any appliances to prepare my own food. I had a room with a private bathroom which was small, dark and dirty. In the 3 nights that I was there my dorm wasn't cleaned once and there was only one double plug socket for 4 people. The best bit had to be as I was walking into the lobby and saw the ceiling cave in, flooding the floor with water. You are required to press a bell and show your key to prove you are staying there each time you enter the hostel which is a good thing considering the area it's in.
