free supply of tea, hot water and coffee.
the surrounding environment looks unsafe. TV not work.
WIFI, price, clean and secure
Homeless people outside urinating against the building, playing loud music all through the night, shouting, asking for money when you leave. If your room is street side, prepare for no sleep whatsoever.
Close to city
Area run down with lots of strange people hanging around outside. Door operated with an entryphone buzzer - which the staff sometimes taking several minutes to open - meaning there was plenty of time for the (probably harmless, but nonetheless unnerving) people outside to bother you. "Deluxe" room was far from deluxe - and window was on to ventilation shaft.
the location was not good for family.
Wifi worked well and room was relatively spacious.
Old matrass, the homeless upfront the entrance were completely harmless but we wouldn't park near the hotel. The Tenderloin got it's name from the fact that police men who worked there were paid more and could afford a better steak, but this place is just a few blocks from union square. It's a trade off to be made with lodging so expensive in SF...
Location, 3 mins away from the Market street by walk. Rooms are not bad.
The environment is totally crazy, drug addicts, sick people, people that need to stay in an institution. We had trouble several times entering the hotel cause people were doing drugs right on its front door. Yet I think these people look more scary than they really are, so if you can bear with a situation like this, you should stay in the hotel because it's good if you take the environment out of the story.
Dirty place, too expensive
The tenders are really kind and will help you and take care of what they can help with. The hotel is a safe place. The price is cheap. Your are at one block from the Hilton Union Square... You can not be more "into" SF.
The 50 meters of the streed in front of the hotel are full of homeless and junks. There are not aggressive at all but... it is still an experience!
Everything worst hotel ever
Almost each times I passed through the door I had to ask junkies, homeless with dogs or dealers to let me in our out. I did not have a problem but it really is an unsafe place.
Within downtown San Francisco, very near landmarks.
Lots of homeless people at the street at night and even at early morning. Felt like somebody would just mug me or hold me at gunpoint. Scary. And the 2 flights of stairs. Left me breathless. Breakfast should have included bread or biscuits.
Nice room for the price and close to the event
Not much air flow in room and located on a bad side of town
1. The hotel is one storey above the ground level and there is NO elevator to it. I had to carry a 50 pound suitcase by myself. ELEVATOR is a BASIC facility in current times and booking.com should highlight if there is NONE. When I asked the front-desk about it, the reply was he preferred to have an elevator for himself as well :-( 2. There is no air conditioning in the premises. When I enquired about it, the reply was you don't need one in San Francisco :-( because of this I had to keep a window half-open. 3. The location of the hotel (tenderloin district) needs to be considered if you are choosing this hotel. 4. The Wi-Fi is powered by a wireless AP (home grade device) and doesn't reach all corners of the hotel. It kept going up and down during my stay. 5. Based on the above factors, I don't think this asking price for a room is fair; it can be cheaper.
Amenities, room size, clean
Smelly. Homeless , drug dealers, drunk people awalys stand in front of the hotel door all the time. I dont feel safe when I stay at this hotel.
The room is clean
The hotel is in a very bad location and the staff sometimes no available 24 hours. Really bad location!!!!
Staff is good.
Hotel is in dangerous street.
NOTHING. WAS THE WORST HOTEL EVER.
Let's be honest: if you can afford one 160$/night hotel, you shouldn't go to this hostel. I went because it's cheap and I wasn't disappointed. It's in the normal standard of city cheap places. Location is good, pretty close to everything. The free tea and coffee all day long were good. TIP: I think it's worth to pay a little extra to have your own bathroom, mine was clean.
Honestly: don't bring your girlfriend here! Romanticism is out of the question. Comfort and space are minimal also. The bed was not so good, soft matress, and it is impossible not to wonder how much they cleaned the sheets, but it was ok, no bugs or anything. The homeless people at the entrance look scary at the beginning, but after a while (I spent three nights there) you realize they are totally harmless, and they are all around the downtown anyways.
I love them they are all great. location is bad but mostly late at night
*The Price *Location * Friendly Staff * Comfort of Room & Cleanliness * Free Wifi This hotel is only one block away from everything! Union Square is only one block away, from there you can take the trolley to Fisherman's Warf, Pier 39 and it also connects you to many other forms of public transportation. So I am not going to lie when I booked my stay here, I was not happy. This place has only two stars and many people have said really negative things about it. I prepared heavily for the worst brought my own blankets,pillows, disinfecting wipes,spray...everything. Now let me tell you, why you should stay here. The Price & Location: All the tourist hotels are all within a walking distance of each other . I could have payed double the price for a hotel that is only two blocks away from me. Don't be afraid to stay here, the only reason why this place has bad reviews is that there is homeless people standing outside the hotel. I stayed here for a total of two nights and the homeless people never bothered me nor did they ask me for money. Union Square Area is generally filled with random homeless people so regardless of where you stay you will encounter them. I don't usually write a long review about something, but I feel like this place gets too much of a bad reputation. If you can afford a more expensive place to stay then go for it, but if you are looking for a simple place to relax and sleep then this your place. The hotel has free wifi, flat screen TV with cable so after a long day of walking and sight seeing, I did enjoy my stay here.
5 min walk from union square and city center (market street ) , staff very friendly and helpful ....
The noise out street ...really noisy at night...
I agree with other reviews for the price of hotel room it was excellent and if your not used to seeing city life (good,bad and indifferent then you will be disappointed with the area homeless and drug addiction issues but if you understand these issues and are not judgmental regarding these issues the area is ez to get around
I had no issues because I knew what to expect but if I had to say something negative it would be it is not available for handicap persons and I fell in to days world this issue should be addressed in all places of business.
The service staff Ketan is very nice and tender, very good service in any our request! The location also good for the travler!
The hotel is in 2nd floor, have to carry our luggage by stairs, and the stairs smell not so good! Out side of the hotel, the street is very dirty and full of homeless!
