If you want to pay an outrageous amount of money to stay in a filthy broom closet, surrounded by San Francisco's finest free range homeless & junkies, then this place is for you. We got to see some real crack cocaine, and enjoyed watching the locals kicking over trash cans into the street. Not for families, but if I have... More

Went there for a meeting at convention center. It was close enough to walk. To say hotel was bare is an understatement. Rooms so small had difficulty walking to bathroom. Not meant for business nor pleasure stay. As last resort, maybe.

Amazing place to be in if you want to visit SF. The rooms are small but unless you have Claustrophobia, it is a great hotel to be in. Free breakfast, in-room coffee maker and hi speed interned, all really worked for me. And the staffs were really helpful and friendly. Would stay again!

In our room you can look out window into neighboring apartment or room. So we kept curtains closed entire time. Elevator sounds and looks as if it will break down any minute. Don't think they have...
