The 7th Street & Market Street subway station is just steps from this downtown San Francisco hotel. A 24-hour front desk with tour services is available at the Aida Plaza Hotel.

close to central
drunk, high,agressive homeless people barbecuing right under the window dangerous, noisy neighborhood
Very central location for SF and highly affordable.
Sketchy part of town, not much effort put in to keeping the facilities sparkling, basic though they may be.
The hostel manager was the best I have ever met. So helpful, above and beyond the norm.
One had to be aware at all times to avoid 'unusual' people in the street. For 2 blocks there can be some awkward moments during the day and at night best not to walk alone.
The place was clean in general terms, bathrooms were clean and the staff really helpful (despite sometimes I found a but hard to understand what the guy was saying).
The location is bad, lots of pretty weird people. The good part of the back location is that after walking 2 blocks everything turns to normal.
No air conditioning, bed wasn't a queen as I requested and I thought shared bathroom wad between two rooms. Bathroom had a broken window. It was terrible
Room was clean and good size Staff is nice Comfortable
Sketchy neighborhood Some loud neighbors from the building next to the hotel
Hostel is alright inside. No bedbugs or anything like that. Sink in room was convenient. Bed was OK. For cost purposes can't be beat. The neighborhood and noise are bad though.
The walls are paper - thin and you can hear everything outside. I barely slept and I checked out early due to the noise. The neighborhood is not good. Lots of drunks, mental illness cases. I'm quite fine with homeless people but we were constantly being cat-called at night and most were really inappropriate. Didn't feel safe.
The staff are friendly and helpful.
The location is central but that is the only positive thing I can say about it. Me and my partner are adventurous travelers who have stayed and lived in many basic places - comfort is not an issue to us and we're also not paranoid about personal safety. I have however, never felt as unsafe as I did in this place. It actually influenced our stay since we felt that we needed to be back in the hostel before dark. I would NEVER stay here again. It's not worth the bit of money you save.
Friendly staff, safe and quiet inside of a hotel most of the times. Fair price for that place, nice cheap hotel.
The area around is not the best for sure, homeless people and some crazy dudes are walking around, screaming etc. Google the description of a Tenderloin to learn more, you have to be aware especially traveling alone. It's not that deep and just a few blocks from the safe street though.
The staff is very cooperative and helpful, also the hostel is very close to the Market Street, less than 1 km.
The area is full of homeless people, prostitutes etc. but as far as I've seen all the central area is like that.
Staff extremely friendly & helpful, clean room & decent shared bathroom. Would stay here again
Bit of a dodgy area but then again it is San Fran!
super cheap clean big rooms
rooms are hot, no fans neighborhood awful
Very dangerous location, police said better leave
That it was close to Market St.
That the room smelled bad That there´s no control about who smokes inside the rooms despite having signs of no smoking allowed. That they had never cleaned the windows (they are all full of ashes, rest of joints, cigarretes) and they smell terribly bad. The wifi had issues. The showers have nothing to hang your towel or to place your gel/shampoo.
Cheap place to bunk down for the night. Our room was clean.
There was nowhere to park. We had to pay $50 to park in a private lot for the night.
very close to Powell station.
Very sketch block, but didn't have any problems.
for the price and location you probably cant expect more
its a very basic accommodation. nothing like a youth hostel as i would expect young people and helpful stuff and kind of a communicative fibe. nothing like this you can find here. its a night stay with basic amenities.the windows to the ventilation shaft are filled with people from the neighboring building smoking and listening to loud music...from 6am to at least 10pm so be prepared.
Staff were lovely, wifi was always good, bathrooms and shower were always clean
The street isn't the greatest. Isn't safe at night. There's a lot of homeless during day but if you're street smart and not too uncomfortable by this it's fine. Once you walk to end of street you're in a busy shopping mall area
The motel have situation on most dangerous area in the San Francisco. To much homeless.
It was dirty, the staff was unfriendly, the wifi didn't really work with the cell phone, the blankets were too thin, it was cold in the room and the area was really unsafe, homeless people and drug addicts were hanging out in front of the hostel all the time, it was definitely not worth the money
The staff is superfriendly and the hotel is located in close proximity to everything. The hotel is clean, a verry nice budget hotel.
Honestly the area is a little bit rough, due to a homeless schelture next door, if you don't mind this I highly recommend staying here.
Street is too bad. There is no security. There is parking lot problem. In hotel room, there isn't bathroom , restroom.
near to downtown
bedbugs! a lot of vagrants around hotel
Room was okay
