“More than ideal place when travelling on a budget”
Reviewed 5 May 2014

Great location and easy to get around. The staff were always accommodating and the rooms were always clean. People complain that the rooms are small but I found them ideal for a solo traveller or couple sticking to a tight budget. The facilities were fine and breakfast was more than enough (not sure why people are so annoyed by paper plates, saves washing up). Basically, you get more than what you pay for here. If you're looking for luxury, stay in a 5 star hotel, not a budget one.

I had a good time staying at this hotel. It was central to everywhere I wanted to go in the city, I found the bed very comfortable, and Eric at the front desk was very personable and eager to help. Others have remarked about the room size, but while it was not spacious, I found it more than adequate for two people. My only complaint would be the street noise, which meant I needed earplugs to sleep well.

If you're looking for an affordable place in downtown SF, this is it. The staff were very friendly, the room was clean and breakfast was included. Eric was especially nice, offering us bus passes that a departing guest had asked to pass along and offering advice on how to get around the city. We would stay here again.

We booked a petite room...and it certainly was. A bit poky for two people. The receptionist was a bit of a stoner, when we arrived the front door was held open so he could "catch some sun". Breakfast is self-service and on paper plates. Parking is in the next street for $16 per day, but that is to be expected in a city I suppose.

However, the location is good for Union Square and the price reasonable. It is not a hotel to choose if you want to stay in bed, but for a place to crash it is well located and affordable.

From the moment we walked in the cleanliness caught my attention, along with the warm welcome from the front desk. Eric at the front desk was very helpful with his area night spot recommendations and good convo. Very appreciated, you can save a lot of $$$ to leave it for the great restaurants in the area !

this hotel has a fantastic location. convenient. Breakfast though was too simple and unappealing. the staff are like robots...they hardly notice or mind you. as if you were a bother to their computering and newspaper reading. the rooms are tiny but livable. would have been bearable had the employees been friendlier. and it was so noisy during the day and night! i highly doubt that i will stay in this hotel again nor recommend it to anyone.

Room Tip: NONE! Look for another hotel

I stayed as part of a couple for 5 nights. Staff were courteous but not overly friendly except for the young guy in the breakfast room who was lovely. The room was tiny but clean and fine for us as we were out every day. There was no air con or fan so it got hot at times. We had a room facing a small courtyard area and there was noise from the other rooms/ice machine on bottom floor at times but nothing too loud.
The front desk helped us to book a wine tour- would recommend it. The best thing is the location- 5 min walk to union square and central to various modes of transport. The fridge in the room was a plus.
The breakfast was basic but plentiful- chopped fruit, cereal, porridge, bagels, tea, coffee and juice. Breakfast is self-serve.
All in all it was fine for the price and location.
