  • This was my first trip to SF. The location was convenient and prime if you're into shopping. Listed below are my thoughts. CONS -Did not have ice to provide to guest, referred me to buy ice next door. -Room was hot, I had to leave the window open the entire time I was there. Would suggest having a built in fan. -Homeless people were everywhere, this deterred me from eatting at local restaurants. PROS -Great location for Union Square -Can't beat the price -Cute restrooms -Enjoyed breakfast

  • The rooms and bathroom were clean and well kept. However, the atmosphere was dull and boring and there was nothing exciting happening. This place is good if you just want a bed to sleep in but it's definitely not the place to meet people or get assistance with what to do/where to go.

  • My daughter and I stayed in one of the private, 2 bed, rooms. Basic accommodations, but the atmosphere, staff, and other guests were great. Enjoyed the breakfast. I wouldn't recommend walking around alone at night, but that goes for most inner cities. Loved being within walking distance to China Town, and, even better, City Lights Bookstore. If you drove, make sure to ask the staff about recommendations as to where to park your car.

  • Matress and pillows are too thin, and the breakfast is only ok. However, location is perfect!

  • Surpassed my expectations. The suite private room had its own bathroom which was so nice. Very cozy and convenient.
