Really really nice for a hostel. Proper beds, nice linens, room was more spacious than most hostels in the area (and I was in the 6 bed). Also in addition to a bathroom, each room has its own little kitchenette.

      A really cool hostel. We got a good price too but there was construction outside and other loud mechanical noises at like 3am! No AC so you leave the window open. Didn't bother me but some might not like it. Black bedsheets had weird stains...

      I arrived at SFO about 9pm and the reception close at 11 pm. I took a shared ride van to get to the hostel quickly. I was surprised with the size of the bed. It's super wide and two people could stay there. I will stay there again when i come to San Francisco next time.

      Good place to stay in SF, esp for music lovers”
      The stay is a good value for money. I stayed in a shared room with 3 bulk beds. Pro: good location with access to supermarkets and public transport, though not at the heart of downtown; clean room and bathroom; friendly and helpful staff; free music facilities trial for music lovers; free coffee and apples Con: The room is small... not even enough space for me to open my suitcase; lack of bed lamp in the share room; facilities a bit old; need to do stairs and no lift; front desk is not 24hrs;

      Hello Chun! Thank you for providing this feedback from your stay at Music City Hotel. We are happy to hear you enjoyed our complimentary coffee and apples and found our front desk staff friendly and helpful. Our front desk does close at 11pm daily however there is an after hours phone number posted on the front door if a guest has any assistance overnight before the office reopens at 9am. We are currently in the process of making certain updates to our shared dorm rooms and bed lamps at each bed is something we are working on. We hope to see you again in the future!

      The famed beatnik culture of San Francisco has seemingly gone with the winds from silicone valley... yet Music City Hotel/Hostel shines a light of optimism in this disappointing tide of change. When the downstairs bar/venue is completed I'm sure this place will be the go-to for those with a nose for the artistic echoes of this famous city... however I wonder if the prices will rise with the completion of the facilities.... nonetheless I will look for a bed here if I ever-again grace the streets of San Fran Psycho ;)

      It was an excellent starting point for the trip around the city. The room was spacious and clean. The bathroom - a bit chilly, though still acceptable. There're excellent music rehearsal rooms in the basement, so I'd especially recommend this place to all the musicians.

      Great find!”
      We've been going to SF for over 30 years. Living just down the coast a bit, we like weekend getaways in the city. We've stayed at many hotels, from high end ones near Union Square, to off the beaten track ones. The Music City Hotel is a great small lower-end hotel, in the style of older boutique hotels - meaning small rooms, with shared bathrooms. It was clean, quiet, and comfortable, and a great deal for the money. The location is in Polk Gulch, where we've never stayed, but will return. There are lots of great restaurants and it was a lovely walk to the theater district. I definitely recommend this place.

      We are so happy you found us and hope you keep us in mind for future getaways to the city. Thank you for taking the time to provide this feedback from your stay. It is wonderful you were able to explore a new part of San Francisco after all these years as Polk Street certainly does have a lot to offer.

      Kitschy vibe, clean rooms, hot coffee”
      If you are looking for a good SF experience on a budget this is a cool place to stay. The aesthetic and color palette are loud kitschy and fun but somehow kind of chic. Decorated for the "experience", it has a fun and cool ambience, and cool place to see for someone seeing SF for the first time. The windows to the outside atrium area were quite pleasant with succulent-filled window sills, reminiscent of Europen neighborhoods, and a thick black curtain to block any early morning sunlight. The coffee was free and hot. Showers on one floor weren't functioning perfectly but the other (1st I think) worked wonderfully. Plan you showers smartly to avoid busy hours bc everything is shared and sometimes you have to wait. Clean towels. Free coffee and tea (and coffee mate creamer) in the morning. Good stay.

      helpful staff and pretty clean amenities
      If you are looking for a hostel this place is pretty good. Staff were really helpful and quick to suggest things like transport to airport, attractions in San Francisco and directions. The actual building and furniture are pretty dated but they are kept clean which is good. About the location, it is not exactly near Union Sq or SFO CBD but it is a good 15 minute walk on a slow pace. So it's do-able but if you're out to explore make sure you have everything because it is not a quick walk.

      This is a hostel, not a hotel”
      Pretty average experience from the get go to be honest. Arrived early, not expecting to get in to our room but didn’t expect the sass the receptionist was serving up. I asked if i could leave my bags and was met with a gesture at the pile of bags everyone else had left. I also asked if I could use the bathroom to get changed and was told repeatedly it was only for guests... The bed in the room I had, had a mattress that looked like it came from the 1980s and had some pretty severe roll together problems. I think if you keep in mind this is very budget accommodation it’s ok, unfortunately SF prices make it hard to remember that.

      The location is the greatest privilege about this hotel. It will take you around 15-20 mins walking to the bustling Union Square. You can also reach some bus stops and cable car stations within a few steps. There are some good cafe nearby for breakfast, and some Spanish and Thai restaurants for dinner.

      Music city hotel is a cheap hotel. Seriously cheap. People might think this could mean they are not good at some services or something. It's okay to be a cynic or criticize others. I must admit I could be neither after staying here for 6 nights. The people at the reception desk are super friendly. They serve nice hot coffee from 9 am to 11 pm! Room is cleaned every day. Yes, you read that correctly! Every single day!!! How many hotels do that these days?! If you are going to be in SF for some work and are near the vicinity of this hotel, don't bother looking to stay anywhere else. I bet you won't regret it!
