Well, even the half -naked 12 foother cowgirl on the wall couldn't distract from the inadequacy of this place. First, the heating didn't work during our entire 1 week stay (in one of the coldest December's in SF), second, the shower wasn't hot either and came out in a single mass at just below head height, making our massively awkward. The towels weren't changed, even when placed on the floor as obstructed, instead they were wedged soggily back into place on the single rail in the damp, cold bathroom. Speaking of bathrooms, we could hear any other toilet /shower / basin in the building like it was ontop of us. Which leads me to the paper thin walls that allow you to hear the receptionist listening to music all night, the couple next door having a barney about socks and the breakfast being prepared at 5am every day (who eats at 5am?!), swiftly followed by somebody who treats sweeping the corridor like a game of 1-person Icertainly hockey. All that enjoyed from a room with a view only of the backs of other people's rooms, with a window that had to be coerced open to alleviate the damp, a door handle that kept dropping off and completely non-functioning wi-fi. This place is described as a European-style hotel, but clearly by somebody who's only ever stayed in close proximity to an Italian airport. I wouldn'tstay here again if I was paid to, and can only be thankful I was on a business trip not a holiday, as this place would have ruined it.
Location is the only redeeming feature of this glorified, overpriced hostel.
