The rooms are very small and they didn't make the room every day, so that was kinda weird. The entire hotel could use some improvements, but overall a positive experience.
The location of the hotel was right downtown San Francisco and the area is quite and safe. Great price and staff very friendly.

One receptionist hardly spoke any English, the other (also the manager) was extremely rude. The room was very noisy, the water out of the shower ran yellow, and one of the two plugs could not be used because some metal was in it. No kettle anywhere in the hotel, only some lukewarm water out of a thermos in the common kitchen (no accessibility)
Very close to Union Square, just at the edge of the dodgy district. Free good wifi.

bad advice about shuttle service to take us to airport.
so handy to Union Square and all the tourist activities and shopping. Quiet in the evenings and close to lots of different places to eat. Staff cared about our safety.

Parking could be nice but I understand that they are rare in SF.
Nothing fancy but clean. It was just enough for us, walking distance from many things and in our budget. We could use the little kitchen to save a little money on food. Felt safe. Wifi work fine.

I stayed at Sheldon Hotel when I attended a conference at Hilton San Francisco. Sheldon is a much more affordable option. The location is very near Union Square and within walking distance from Powell BART Station. The staff were really friendly and helpful. There is a shared kitchen and laundry facility that is considerably clean. We can warm up food using the microwave too.

No hand or face towels or glasses in the rooms. Old and a bit run down. Feels like a cross between a pensione(without breakfeast provided) and a hostel. No frills.
Very friendly staff. Great location. Affordable.

Not windows in the bathroom.
I stay here with one friend for 4 days. Staff were really welcoming. Professional but without being too tight ass. Location is good, close to union center. Rooms were clean every 2 days. There is a kitchen in the hotel (not in the room). Very useful...

Another hostel is just next to the Sheldon so there was some noise at night. Also, there was characteristics smell such as cleanser. It wasn't bad but it wasn't good.
- Cheap rates, location, Wifi, Cleanliness, kind staff - There is a good Korean restaurant(Cocobang) near the hotel.

coffee making facility and a few disposable cups could have made the stay more pleasant.
friendly staffs and convenient location.

Kitchen room very small. The area is full of homeless people, but I never felt unsafe. They just ask for change outside shops. Just probably wouldn't walk alone late night.
Comfy bed, good wifi, helpful staff, central location just two blocks from Union Square. Felt safe as they give you a key to enter the main door of the building.

The small size of the room. The cleanliness. No housekeeper during our stay, the towels have been changed once during our stay.

Pretty responsive staff and awesome location. We loved San Francisco and this was a prefect base for us with everything for the budget traveller.
