So here is the deal on this place. Yes, it's located on the edge of the Tenderloin Distrct which has a very large homeless population. I read a lot of reviews about feeling unsafe but I don't think that is the issue that arises so much as, if anything, there once in a while might be some noise outside the hotel. We were on a higher floor so never had any issues, but someone else we know who has stayed here said one night they were woken up by some noise outside because of the rather transient population that passes by the hotel.
At the end of the day, the price was right, the hotel was located in quick walking distance to the Powell Bart Station, and the rooms were beyond nice (I loved the bed) and the staff were very very cool.
So if homeless people make you nervous, spend the money and stay somewhere else. If you'e looking for a full breakfast, again, go somewhere else. But if a good room at a decent price with cool staff that is convenient to transpo and cool parts of San Francisco is your main draw, it's worth taking a look here
