In San Francisco, this motel is a 15-minute walk to Union Square and United Nations Plaza is across the street. Fisherman’s Wharf and the Ferry Building Marketplace are just 2 miles away.

The staff. They were friendly and helpful. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. Perfect for a single man or a couple to stay on a budget. Right outside the front door on Mission Street is all the character you could ask for in a SF location, the bus near and the BART within a couple of blocks to take you just about anywhere in the city.
Not really dislikes, just a couple of observations. Wood floors should have a throw rug or two in the room. And the bathroom as well (no bath mat to step out of the shower onto - I had to use the extra towel). Also, if I were a single woman, this might not be the place for me, but with the right room location, should be fine.
In the mission area=close to everything, muni transportation all day and night. plenty of bars, clubs and restaurants.
No fan on summer, no air conditioning=bring your own if needed.. No Shower in room, but no problem if you shower early=busy 7:30 to 9:30
There were good fresh fruit and veg shops nearby. Good tram service to the financial district and Ferry station. The room was OK and there was a fridge and wide screen TV. The bed and room were cleaned daily. We could leave our luggage safely at the reception on our last day.
We chose a shared bathroom option but the bathrooms were not really that clean and they were often occupied. Close to city but the area was rundown and there were many homeless people. The pavements were grubby. We did not go out after dark.
-Bed bugs -No toilet paper in the shared bathroom -Windows that would not close making the room so chilly that we could barely sleep -Extremely unhygienic
You can hear every word of the people in the rooms around you. Shared bathrooms were dirty, there was not even a sink in the bathroom, but in the bedroom.
Location, cheap price, facilities we're the worst I could tell they were trying to improve but I found a bed bug and that's gross. The Staff was nice.
The facilities were pretty bad, it wasn't clean, I found food behind the dresser, this would attract pests!
Clean tidy room. Well maintained. Helpful staff.
Subject to street noise. Felt slightly unsafe at night on Mission St at times.
Was well located
Was to hot no air conditionning
Decent location, only a couple of bus rides from tourist attractions
Dangerous area, sketchy area. Bathrooms wernt very clean, wifi didnt work well.
Fairly central with good access to BART. Room was clean. Laundry facilities available.
No lift. Bathrooms were dirty and showers were poor. Hotel is located in poor area with lots of homeless people and drug users on the streets. Wifi was very erratic and unreliable.
Theres only a community bathroom for the entire floor. Bad neighborhood. Smells really horrible. We ended up leaving in the middle of the night.
No bathroom inside of the room
I DIDNT LIKE ANYTHING ABOUT IT
No ac unit no bathroom in my room...place stunk Bed was uncomfortable Roaches in the hallway
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.
good value for money, good location near bars and near the BART
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.
Room was hot, no fan no ac name that song Ku ka ra cha wifi did not work at my report of the heat, wifi issue and a request for a partial refund was told to get out. what a great way to do business.
having our own bathroom and the actual building
asked for towels on our second day he said no. tv didn't work, hair was all over the shower the room looked like maybe they just change the sheets every guest.
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.
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.
