San Francisco has to do something about the homelessness. Hotel has no common area. Be careful. A theft and death within one week. Long-term guest are very controlling. They literally put me in someone else's bed upon check-in. Once Ms. Shirely was back. She was not nice at all. Very uncomfortable.

The hotel is quite central, in a quiet neighbourhood. I was particularly amazed by the hotel staff. I had an issue with my reservation and I needed a last moment change with they did without even questioning. I would definitely stay there again once in San Francisco. Thank you guys for making my trip smooth!

Stayed here 7 nights, rooms were good. Was in a 6-person male dorm with kitchen and bathroom ensuite. The staff here are nice and helpful. Provided good services and felt safe entire time. Location is perfect for getting around places (attractions, food, transit, etc). Just be mindful it can get very noisy from things going on in the street below during the day and night (traffic, homeless, people talking, garbage trucks, etc), but this was not the hotel's fault. They have no control over what goes on around them. I would recommend staying here and will most likely come back in the future.

Concern on they way they don't fellow there policy that need to be met before someone really gets hurt cause the staff has no control of that kind of act that behave of violence cause of hardships taking it out on others of abuse that could become violent and death. Dominating the rooms cause they've been inthe sameroom for years and that they now own it and start to abuse even with the kitchenware the sharp knife cause I'm native American Indian. Thats unacceptable.

Stayed the first week of August and it was really great! Rooms are clean and comfortable, plenty of individual bathrooms throughout, and the staff are super friendly. Lots of fruit, breakfast brioche and coffee for free in the morning! Then there's the picture gallery of Bay area musicians! (I had the CCR room!) Btw I changed my booking from TripAdvisor to direct website and an glad I did because if you book direct they give you free breakfast vouchers for a nice restaurant around the corner, lots of delicious choices! Plus it was a bit cheaper for the room that way. Great location, and you can grab the California Street cable car, just a couple minute walk away, to the Powell Street cable car, down to the wharf. Super fun and easy!
