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.

This hotel is located quite close to the China town area, so walking to see this attraction was possible.
By far this is the worst place I could have chosen to stay. You enter the building to smell a strong scent of marijuana which is overpowered of the smell of damp in our room. My husband refused to use the communal shower after finding a used needle in it. A live-in tenant was the point of contact during our stay, we did not see the owner once in 3 days. For the price, we were ripped off - find some where else to stay.
Close to Moscone Center.
Neighborhood (just one block around) is dirty.
1. My room wreaked of a rat odor. Couldn't sleep cause of it. Didn't want to complain because when I arrived and came back to my place on the first day of stay, the resident manager stumbles out of his room very intoxicated asking who I was. He then said his assistant is slipping because he didn't know even though he was in the same room with me when I signed paper work. 2. No toilet paper provided. Bathrooms and showers are shared with 20 other rooms. Sanitation is low priority. Carpets felt very sticky. 3. Be careful where you park. Location is good in a bad area.

It was extremely cheap. It is an old building with very nice wood work in the first floor hall and a sky light in the stairway going up. The bathrooms have old fashioned looking wooden stalls. It is in a great central location and you can't beat the price. There were two beds, a microwave and a fridge. No TV, but who wants a TV when you're on vacation? Internet access in the room also, although it would go out from time to time.
My wife felt unsafe there. She had read about the Tenderloin area immediately before we went there, and was so freaked out that she had trouble sleeping the first night, as I slumbered beside her. Yes, there are lots of homeless people in the Tenderloin, yes, it has the highest crime rate in SF, but it is still fairly safe. If you have to come and go from the hotel at night, just walk briskly to your destination and you'll be fine.
Quiet central location. Very accessible. Fridge and microwave useful. Handy for cable car and buses. Staff listened to any concerns and handled them well.
Amenities could use an overhaul. Some rooms better than others. Fellow guests lack consideration towards neighbours.
We were very apprehensive about staying at this hotel given the amount of negative reviews. I was pleasantly surprised with the quality of this hotel, it is not in the best area however it is very close to the bus, train and cable car which makes it easy to get around. This is the best hotel in the suburb of Tenderloin (many other hotels are dodgey). A 5-minute walk to Union Square with all the shopping, restaurants, cafes and nightlife makes it perfectly located. For such a cheap price, the hotel is quite old but the rooms are comfortable, staff are lovely and helpful and you feel quite safe. The shared shower and bathrooms are kept clean but are still a bit old (some doors have no locks/old toilets etc) but for the price, this is a hotel you can't go past. The area is definitely not the worst in SF, there are homeless around however if you keep to yourself if out walking in the streets, you won't have any issues. There are a lot of other tourist hotels and cafes around so you won't have problems meeting people. slight smell of weed occaisionally and no TV in the room but that did not really bother us as the hotel was so cheap and conveniently located. overall I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking for a cheap, affordable stay in San Francisco
- some locks on toilets are broken - hotel is a tiny bit run down (older style accommodation)
NOTHING it was ridicoulos
EVERYTHING, room was not clean, bugs, smelt of Toilette, ....
I was right there downtown. This place is so ragged it's already kind of cool again...Bukowsky style. Toilets and showers (in the hall) were clean. Can't beat the price. Not for ninnies, though!
I didn't want to let any of my stuff hit the floor so kept everything on the bed as it seemed the only decently clean space in my room. Worked out good as I was on my own and the bed was big enough. No extras e.g. coffee maker, hair dryer, soap, but - surprise - a towel:) This place is another Grand Budapest Hotel that has seen better days...
Smelly room，dirty carpet, clogged toilets, poor insulation board, unable to lock window.Many homeless people around there. Everything is terrible!
The location !
Everything !! This hotel is terrible ! Disgusting ! It smells horrible ! No towels. No paper toilet. The bathtub was just disgusting we couldn't use it !! The staff is inexistant and the only ones they were here, they are not friendly ! The street is full of homelesses and junkies. 2 channels only on the "TV" ! It is not a safe area. Avoid this hotel !!!!
Hotel smells like weed all the time. Homeless people everywhere.
Only the location, not var away from the Union Square.
I had television, microwave and refrigerator, but no power cable and the staff was't able or willing to organize it. No switch for the light, only a cable in the middle of the room to switch it on or off. The toilet doors of the shared restrooms could not be closed.
I mean it is a hotel so I should be able to have visitors whenever but I can see the other side so other then that nothing.
Good location in Downtown SF. Wifi is working good. Definitely a bargain. Security mechanism at the door.
The smell of weed is everywhere. Toilet paper is a scarcity. No curtains in the room, we had to use our towel.
The fact it had security at the front of the location.
Communications via email and mobile were exceptionally terrible. Despite numerous attempts to contact the administration no communications were responded to. My accomodation costs were taken from my credit card before I vacated this less than desirable place. Conditions were filthy. There were mainly residents and not guests who smoked pot and smoked cigaretteson the premises. The room stunk of excrement and was substandard for the cost. I did not sleep properly for 6 nights because of the noises heard through the substandard infra-structure of this place. I would never come back to this place of horrors.
The location is good. So close to Powell station and Civic center. I could use the room alone.
The room smelled terrible and disgusting. The refrigerator was broken. I felt itchy when I lay on the bed to sleep. Yucky. The price is high even though it is located in the city center.
Nothing. I wish I had read the reviews of this place and not booked it!
This "hotel" was disgusting. It is located in the worst area in San Fran, surrounded by homeless and drugged up street people. I was scared to leave the hotel any time after it got a little dark. When we got there we were greeted by a very rude strange man. Our room was dirty, smelly and the quilt was flithy it looked like they had pulled it from one of the homeless from outsie!! I refused to touch it and I refused to sleep on the sheets which was a disturbing yellow dirt colour. I used my clothes as sheets and blankets. The next morning we woke up feeling sore from the hard bed and tried to get ready. There was a broken fridge in the room and a microwave. A little tiny sink in the corner and a dusty mirror. The bathroom was gross, smelly toilets, mouldy shower...the list goes on. It gets worse. The next morning me and my partner wake up covered in bites from bed bugs!!! They were all over my face and my hands and legs. When we told the strange man down stairs he said it was us and basically said we were dirty and didnt shower enough! It has ruined my whole trip (1 month holiday in america). My face is still swollen and looked disgusting from the bites. We demanded a new room which was slightly better, apart from a window that I couldnt open and vomit all down the side..... When check out came i was glad to get out. Honestly its not worth it. If you are trying to save money, save money in other areas, spend a little more on your accommodation. I will probably have scars from these bites.
Dangerous for female travellers, very shady establishment in a shady area. Beyond unhygienic. Lack of basic amenities. Not as advertised. Broken furnishings. Bathrooms without sinks. Open for exits, welcoming all from the street outside. Not fit for purpose AT ALL, we ended up checking into another actual hotel.
Located close to city centre. Rough-looking area but harmless.
Dirty. Unhelpful staff when there was anyone around at all. No toilet paper for several days, and co-ed toilets defiled each morning. Bed bugs. Stains on floors and walls.
Exposed electrical wires Non-grounded electrical plugs No cold water in sink Dirty Shared Bathrooms
