    Clean tidy room. Well maintained. Helpful staff.

    Location: Mission District is the non-tourist heart of SF and the street is active until 2am. Yuppyfied Valencia Street is one block over to access all the up-and-coming bars and restaurants. Walk to Philz Coffee on Folsom and 24th for best hand-brewed coffee in SF. Hotel good public transit as it is located halfway between 16th and 24th BART stations. A few blocks from 'That's It Market' where Anthony Bourdain got a great cubano sandwich. No cheaper place to stay in a double room in SFO. A great place for what it is--well located and cheap and void of tourists.

    Communal bathrooms are not well maintained--but there were 4 on our floor so check out and pick the best one for you. Booking.com does not disclose that this is a residence hotel that also rents rooms by the night. If that kind of patron disturbs you, do not stay here. Never felt unsafe though.

    Nothing

    The hostel was in a very dodgy neighborhod. We paid 130$ for one night, for that we got dirty room with dirty towels. The bathrooms were shared and disgusting, there was only extremely hot or extremely cold water so it was impossible to shower. The staff was unfriendly and kinda rude to us. Also the Indians who own the hotel were very loud in the morning. In general, very bad experience for such a price, would not recommend to anyone.

    1) strong and stable wifi signal; 2) quite convenient location. The hotel is on a pretty rough street. But just one block west, you'll get at Valencia where plenty of decent restaurants and cafes are located on. If you want to see a more local living-style district, I believe that area isn't too bad a choice.

    1) the ensuite bathroom was basic & very outdated. The bathtub was the worst tub I've ever seen. The paint on it was coming off. It's quite gross to look at. 2) The male receptionist working the night we arrived (Aug 1) didn't seem to care much about our business. 3) There're a number of pubs around so it was quite noisy during the nights of Friday and Saturday.

    The building was secure and the price was very reasonable.

    It wasn't the best area of San Francisco and it wasn't the best smelling place. Definitely low end and the shower didn't work. There wasn't much noise cancellation with the rooms and the view out the windows. Also, periodically there was some loud screamings.

    Let's be honest, you're looking at this hotel because it's cheap, and for a hotel right in the Mission it is very cheap. Unfortunately, the price and the complimentary WiFi are all this place has going for it.

    Shared bathrooms, cramped bedrooms, dirty hotel with bugs, sketchy area, no guests after 9pm, shoddy employees, etc. You get the idea.

    Kind receptionist.

    The location is in a terrible neighborhood. The building had a stale smell. Didn't stay the night. Don't travel the neighborhood at night. *No Parking*

    I was not very far from the tourist attractions, It was easy to find. The room was fine, they even had a kitchen which was great.

    Bathrooms were very old

    The worst "hotel" I've ever stayed in. Other guests were scary. Bathrooms smelt. Hotel was completely run down. Staff were rude. Nothing in the room worked. Totally overpriced.

    El Capitan is located in the heart of the Mission, where, in just four fours blocks, BART exists, ready and waiting to take you anywhere...

    It seemed it took the staff a 'while to trust their occupants. But, when respect was earned, the smiles quickly came thereafter. Just be quiet and courteous - seemed to be their mantra.

    He had our privacy and we were close to a lot of bars. The money we pay is what we got. Is ok if you dont look for a porch hotel and just for a bed.

    No private toilet on all rooms. Showers were bad. Room was a bit smelly.

    The hotel is located in a nice area in the mission district. For realy less you get a prived room and you wont have that in a hostel.

    Its not very clean, some people really live there but they are laid back and easy. The shared bathroom is not very clean but accepable. Althou the toiletpaper seams to fanish sometimes.

    Neat, clean room. The hotel is run efficiently, orderly everything seems to be under control. The price is fair in pricey San Francisco.

    Shared bathroom. Building and decor is old.

    Price, location, access to transit, and classical styling.

    The captains Bell! Thin walls, bathroom next to my room, intimidating people, weekly and monthly wage earner tenants, noise, and being forced to get up early 4th of July by neighbor who threw his weights set or something around until he heard me up walking at 9am as he talked he was mad about hearing a tourist enjoying himself. I did stay up late, typed, ate, watched TV, and walked around so this isn't suitable for tourists due to thin walls, cramped quarters, and cultural misconceptions as the other guys work and struggle to pay rent so it's not fun nor welcoming. The place truly gave me the odd sense of being on a wooden ship full of endentured servants on their way over.

    Room smelt like old cigar and just stale. Sheets didn't look clean. Found a pubic hair in the bed. Communal toilets resembled dirty public toilets. Did not look like they'd been cleaned in a while. Didn't bother to check what the showers were like. Staff were not very friendly. Rough area. I left after one night (was meant to stay two) and was greeted by some police officers on my way out... Something about a drug bust.. There were also liquidators removing what looked like furniture and other hotel fixtures when I was checking in. Just really dodgy. Spend a little more money and stay elsewhere.
