They were very accommodating when (being a tourist) i found I had booked the wrong day. They managed to sort something out in a friendly and professional way
Didn't feel safe at all. I wouldn't not recommend this location at all. Scary place .!!!
Great position in the Mission District. Fairly clean but tired facilities. Overall was excellent value for money.
Pretty much what I expected, good location, fair price, mini fridge in the room was a nice bonus.
All good except bathroom was pretty nasty, since it's one of those hostel style hotels where they don't have private bathrooms, they dont clean your room, or offer free breakfast it would be great to just focus like 75% of the attention on the bathrooms. Need to be cleaned more frequently and thoroughly.
The proximity to everything was certainly a bonus. Beats staying in east Bay and commuting to the city every day.
Of the 2 men who checked us in both days, one was indifferent at best - the other looked positively put out anytime we asked for anything. The street noise was almost unbearable. The communal restrooms were pretty dirty. Our 2nd stay of 4 nights we did not get the private bath and shower that we had booked.
