My daughter & I stayed here a week during COVID before my girl went into essential housing for her university. The safety precautions were outstanding and the manager Patricia was exceptionally great at her job. Always helping point us in the right direction, I even locked my key in the room at 3 am before my departing flight and I was able to call her & she was able to get maintenance to let me in my room not missing my flight. I am an owner/operator of a hotel in Costa Rica. To have a front desk manager as responsible and excellent at her job defines the service during these very difficult times. The hotel is clean and incredibly well run. I can't rate this hotel high enough !!! Outstanding service !!! The only negative is the uneasy feeling of so many street people out front. This takes some getting used too! and I hope San Fransico can one day address this problem for this beautiful city!:)

Redone in a trendy industrial style, this no frills option is in the heart of the city. Two blocks up from PowellStation, it’s an easy trek with a suitcase. No hair dryer in the room, and limited towels available, but a great value for the location. All in all a great stay with the Pinecrest Diner around the corner for a hearty breakfast.

Was staying overnight for business. Check-in was efficient and trouble-free. Pleasantly surprised by how bright and clean the room is. I would describe the room as hipster-minimalism. Lots of pipe fixtures and reclaimed wood. The location was near Union Square and Market Street. There was lots of easy walking shopping and food nearby. One small thing was missing. There were no cups/glasses in the room. I had to ask for some at reception. I'd stay here again.

Bottom line: affordable option at a great location. Read the cons, and if they are something you're ok with go for it ;-) Pros:  1. I could not find any other reasonably rated hotel at a price below $150-$200, at least in the dates I needed. 2. The location is right by union square. Close to everything. Also from a safety perspective, especially if you're travelling alone (a few blocks further from union square it gets less friendly).  3. Spacious room, well heated in the winter, has a safe.  4. My room was facing the back and was super quiet. Cons: 1. Low water pressure, at least in the room where I was staying 2. The bathroom had a funny smell at the beginning. Not sure the source, maybe the pipes. I left the vent on even when I was out of the room and after a few hours it passed.  3. Very basic mattress, not the most comfortable.  4. They will not accept a credit card for deposit and payment when checking out. Payment needs to be done on check in or when booking.  Even though these three things I am giving a high rating to the place because none of the cons bothered me too much and I think there's good value for money here.

Room was fine, clean, cosy and quiet at night (on the top floor). WiFi seemed to work well. Location was decent for Union square and shopping. Provided a baby cot fine. Missing the little touches to make it anything more than a 3* review. No fridges in rooms or anything really apart from a bed. Would it hurt to put a couple of glasses (paper ones even) in the room for drinks ? As has been commented, it’s tough to get accommodation in San Fran at a reasonable price so you’re always going to feel you’ve paid through the nose for something very basic! Room was fine but don’t expect anything fancy.
