If really, before staying at the YMCA in San Fran i had never ever heard about this kind of company, and if had heard, i would have never ever stayed there! Firstly, the room was very small and dirty! Secondly, checking out was a nightmare, they confused credit card details and returned the deposit to my friends card, who planned to stay there for 2 more nights, but apparently checked out after one night stay! Thirdly, when I parked my car for 10 or 15 dollars a night in the secure parking and wanted to leave the hotel at late hour, they said that i should pay 5 dollars for the key from the parking lot what I did despite the fact that if went by foot it would take less time, it is because of the location. The location, thus is just half a mile from the Union Square, is extremely unsafe with lots of homeless people and is considered to be the most nutorious district in San Francisco (Tenderloin) I could not even imagine using a sauna there, everything was so unpleasant to me at this establishment. Homeless people were sleeping just a corner from the main entrance, the smell was awful! Actually, we paid 85 dollars a night! It was very reasonable, but belive me, it is worth to pay 200 and to stay in other hotels, even in this neighborhood! despite the dissapointment, san francisco remains to be one of the greatest cities I have ever visited. I visited it 3 times and would like to return back, but definately not to this hotel!
