We stayed for 2 nights in mid September.
The room was very small but clean, and very quiet. The receptionists were super friendly and nice as well as very attentive.Breakfest is served by the reception desk, we took ours up tp our room,
The free parking is a real bonus.
Great location by foot or car, just 10-15 minutes of walking from Union Sq.but the entire area is quite creepy at night...

The place is a bit of a hack, but I feel I should be a bit less critical as the staff was trying really hard to make visitors' stays enjoyable. However, they had little to work in their favour. First, the location is terrible - do not walk around here at night by yourself! The rooms are facing an open space parking lot and I actually wondered how hard it is for someone to climb to your door right from the street. In other words, it does not look like a secure place and, given the neighbourhood, this can be challenging. The doors don't close very well and the windows (which face the same parking lot) don't look to safe either.

The place seems cheap, but it is actually quite expensive for what it offers.

Dear Aschiuta,

We are very sorry about your unpleasant experience. But maybe it was just the circumstances you were in. Our hotel is in the Soma District of San Francisco, which is quite well known for it’s night life, but there aren’t many safety concerns in this neighborhood. People often come here for the convenience our hotel provides by being at a short distance from the great things to be enjoyed in downtown San Francisco. I am sorry, the staff should have reassured you about the how safe our property is: we have security cameras all throughout the property; there is only one entrance in and out, and only guests have access to it; and there is always a night employee on duty to assure that everything is going well. We hope you come back to stay with us, and we will make sure you enjoy your stay this time. Thank you

The hotel is infested with pidgeons, which are very noisy during the evenings.

The breakfest is regular to poor.

Good thing is that the parking slot is for free. You will be also from a walking distance to Market Street, full of stores...

Perfect service, clean and tidy rooms. Staff couldn't be more helpful. Very secure place with parking.
It was a bit away from the tourist attractions but a can cost less than $20 dollars to most of the attractions.
I would recommend the vagabond to people on a budget :)
