This hotel is in an up and coming area of San Francisco. It is across from the federal building (which is beautiful) and public transportation as well as other public services. As expected, this location comes with a colorful assortment of people hanging around outside. The hotel itself seemed secure. The doors require a room key to enter from outside and the stairwells and elevator also require room keys. The rooms are small and eco-friendly. I didn't really mind this. They could use updating (paint, carpet, flooring), but I was told that they are slowly working on this. There will be a cool wine bar/restaurant downstairs soon - it is under renovation now. The staff was incredible. Because I was traveling alone and was unfamiliar with the area, the GM, Haiyi, walked with me to grab food and he showed me the area and told me more about the hotel. He was very professional and knowledgeable and seemed to care very much about the hotel's quality and the customers. All of the staff members were amazing and helpful. Bottom line: if you're on a budget and can handle the surroundings, this is your spot. It's not the safest, but crime rates are high in cities no matter where you are (in all communities really). The staff will provide earplugs, or you can do what I did and download a sleep sound app and you won't hear as much street noise. This place will someday be one of the hippest spots in SF, so I enjoyed experiencing it now.
