We stayed at this hotel twice in July 2012 and really liked the hotel itself. Both rooms (twin rooms) we had were very comfortable although the second one was really great as it was twice the size of the first one. The hotel is quite cool, with a relaxed vibe and nice eco-friendly décor.
Helpfully, it was possible to arrange for a very early-morning (around 6am) airport pick-up from the front door of the hotel.
Unfortunately, the hotel is located on 7th street and getting to everything that visitors would want to see involves crossing over 6th street. I realized too late that our guidebook referred to 6th street as “downright dangerous” but decided it couldn’t be that bad, and headed out to explore on foot on the day of our arrival. When we walked back to the hotel from Union Sq that evening (at 9pm, so not late) we witnessed a girl being beaten up in the 6th street area. This was an extremely unsettling experience, really gave us a bad impression of San Francisco and meant we only went through this area by car from then on. Although I really liked this hotel, please be aware that it is not located in a safe area and I do not recommend you walk between the hotel and Union Square. This view has been backed up since our visit by a family friend who lives in San Francisco as well as various guidebooks (and other reviews on here, I see).
