            The check-in process was fast and great, the location is perfect. However, please note that you cannot ask to leave your luggage at the hotel if you are coming early or would like to leave early, the will tell you to go to other hotel to do the baggage drop and it costs you $2 per bag. Although I was checked-out and come back to check-in the day after tomorrow (as I spent 1 night in Yosemite), the hotel did not allow you to leave to baggage with them.

            Satisfying stay in San Francisco!”
            Stayed at this hotel for two nights. I stayed at 2-queen beds with a private bathroom. And it was actually two separate rooms connected with a bathroom which is cool. The rooms and the bathroom were tidy and clean. The staffs were nice and helpful. Location was really nice with trams and subway nearbyand you can find probably all the shops you need near the hotel. Satisfying cozy hotel and I want to visit again.

            I booked a room with public bath but felt surprised and happy to be upgraded to a private bath room. The room was good! With a view of the street Powell with cable car, but no worries, the room equipped with double windows so that the room was quiet, at least, the noise was not from outside, but it was an old, traditional SF building so I knew what to expect... overall I loved my stay there.

            Pros: clean sheets. Firm mattress. Hot shower. Cons: bugs crawling on the bathroom floor. Loud city noises audible with poor insulation. Sketchy neighborhood. Poor service/staff. For example, our flight was delayed, so I called to notify. They told me there is 24/7 concierge. But we got there at 4am, and had to wait for 30 mins to be let inside (we thought we were gonna get mugged), despite calling (no answer). The concierge eventually came out, clearly didn’t care, and was totally unapologetic.

            Excellent Value for the money -- I took the room with the bathroom in the room -- a deluxe -- this is important. It is spartan, as many others describe -- there is a funny smell in the hallway -- but inside the room is fine. Bathroom was older, but ok. If you want a great location for almost under 100, you can't beat this.

            For San Francisco on a budget this was a great, convenient hotel to stay at - just down the road from Union Square & very handy to the cable cars (one of the stops is straight across the road). I do recommend to book in advance so that you get a cheaper deal & make sure you book a room with an ensuite. I had a Queen shared bathroom & while the amenities were clean, there were no mirrors in the room or in the bathroom (which was only a shower with a towel rack & wooden bathmat). In saying that the Staff were very friendly & helpful & I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to San Fran.
