Reviewed October 19, 2013 via mobile

Easy walk to union square and public transportation. Clean rooms recently renovated. The staff was friendly. Shared bathrooms could use an update. For the price I'd highly recommend for a short stay. The old time elevator was great. Good weekend stay.

Stayed: October 2013, traveled solo

Post hotel was inexpensive, staff was helpful and friendly. Bed was comfortable and clean. Neighbourhood is great (6 minute walk to Union Square). Large TV in room and lots of channels to choose from (granted that you are in SF to watch television). 2 bathrooms (1 working shower) and 2 toilets in corridor.
Hotel did leave us with a 'run down impression'. On a couple of occasions the toilets were out of toilet tissue. For some odd reason the room maids appeared to be doing their work in the late afternoon. This, I have never before experienced. Elevator appears to have been installed in the early 19th century. Hotel is directly next door to Honey Honey, a really good breakfast place (this is a big plus).

So at 10 oclock at night I needed a cheap hotel in San Fran when I stumbled apon this place it was great I called in (keep to mind it was 10 at night) and was greeted graciously by the night watchman he told me he could reserve me a room for the night for a very cheap price when I arrived the generosity continued I was given advice on all the things around me and after I arrived to my room I was stunned to find it newly renovated with hard wood floors wifi and a new flat screen a queen bed mini fridge and a desk....the only problem was there was only one bathroom per floor which if u r a young single man this should have no effect on you...also if u are a young single man it's located right in the middle of a couple of nice clubs and also it's on the safer side of lower part of San Fran..over all very impressed

We got into town around 12:30am and didnt have reservations ANYWHERE. We stopped everywhere to get a room. No one would let me book a room because I didnt have cash on my debt card! I had a lot of cash on hand!! I was so tired having to drive around & no one would help. Going into "Post Hotel" the clerk alfonso helpped us out. He offered us a room WITH A RESTROOM! It was a great room n clean. Restroom was very clean. Got wonderful customer service n will stay again!!! THANK YOU ALFONSO AT POST HOTEL!

I was nervous about this hotel I have to admit. I haven't been on a budget for a long time. As this trip is a personal extension of a business trip, I am sharing a room with a friend and on budget by staying in Post Hotel. I really believe you get what you pay for. We get 2 queen size beds which barely fit into the room - but am contented that for 60 USD per person, we do not need to share a king size bed. We can hardly open the bathroom door as one of the bed was blocking the way. A little of a squeeze, for 2 petite female travelers. The bathroom is of a decent size with a bath tub. The basin is located outside the bathroom. Our room is facing the main road with a pub across the road - you can hear conversations till 2 - 3 am in the night. If you are a light sleeper - I recommend other hotels. The room next to us is undergoing some sort of renovation. We were woken up by noise of renovation works at 9 am on Day 2 - I guess it helps us get over jet lag by forcing us to be up early. The hotel seems fairly clean. At a corner of the room, there was a pipe which looked torn in the middle that ran from the floor to the ceiling. I really do not know what the pipe is for as the torn parts seems to be mended by some tape or some sticky thing that is soft......Well, we are only here for 3 nights - so it's an alright stay all in all. Location is great though - 7 minutes to union square :) Very basic hotel - not sure if I would come back though - it feels clean but rather shabby at the same time.

Post Hotel has a wonderful location on Post Street in the Union Square Financial District of downtown San Francisco. It is basic but clean. The rooms are smallish (so small that there was no table or chair), but the toilet was reasonably large and well furnished.

There is no restaurant, so prices are without breakfast. There is a vending machine in the hotel with snacks and beverages. There is a laundromat, but you have to buy your own detergent from the Walgreen's around the corner, which doesn't make much sense if you're staying for a couple of days.

The staff were reasonably friendly. They also provided a coffee maker which was requested during booking. The room I had was very quiet (also requested during booking).

In summary, although the room is clean and the hotel is well located, at around $120, this is somewhat pricey.

The boy at the desk was possibly the worst receptionist I have ever encountered. Every single time we came into contact with him, he screwed us around and seemed to lie to increase prices and change things around. He made us move rooms half way through our stay, charged us $3 to print 3 pieces of paper and then refused to let us have a room that another guest had given to us (because he wouldn't let 4 of us stay in the room he had moved us into - even though we had booked a room with two double beds) because he could sell it. Then when we asked to buy the room (which had already been paid for by the couple who was leaving and had given us the room), he told us it would be $350 a night.

I hope you are fired soon Mihau because you have probably ruined more than one experience at this hotel/ hostel.
