Firstly, Casa Lomo isn't a hotel its more of a hostel with private rooms so bare that in mind.
Location: Located in the Haight neighbourhood it's in good striking distance to all the usual tourist spots (def a bus ride to come home, uphill!). The Castro is also around the corner. A tip for parking, make sure you check the signs for the street cleaning, as you'll need to move your car, and also make sure you turn your wheels curb side or you'll have a nice surprise on your windscreen. There's 2 little supermarkets around, open late which is very handy.
Room: The rooms are on the smaller side but more than enough. The decor is fairly new, Ikea inspired. The bed is slightly small, I guess to match the smaller room, but was comfortable. The room also has a fridge and tv which is welcomed. The bathroom was again on the small side, but still functional and clean. Quick tip, you need to pull down on bath faucet water ring to engage the shower head. Possibly the only issue is the walls aren't particularly thick, and we may of hit a bad patch of younger guests, plus the traffic, it was rather noisy at times, but bearable.
Service: The service is minimal, mainly for checkin/out, but it was very friendly, and they make sure you've parked correctly which was really appreciated.
Value: Well this is where Casa Lomo wins, compared to the prices in San Fran it is very good value. Just remember its more of nicer hostel than a hotel.
