The good: Very nicely located near the Transamerica Building in Chinatown with plenty of good restaurants around. SF hotels are very expensive so anything under $100 a night is alluring. It can be easily reached by taking the #8 bus. The Suck: The whole place stinks of oldness, there are not enough bathrooms (especially in the mornings), you can hear... More

Since we only use hotels to sleep in, this place was perfect for us. Location was perfect for where we wanted to be: a block away from Little Italy and China Town and Peir 39. We didn't mind the shared bathrooms (as long as they were clean).

Good location and good price. Bad smell. The first thing we did was go out and buy a glade plug in and Clorox wipes. No air movement in room and a very bad smell. We were suppose to stay 5 night but left after 2.

Yes, the rooms are small. Yes, some of the bathrooms are dirty. Yes, the streets are loud and noisy, but I am more than happy with my stay!!!! Staff was super friendly and easy going.

It has very basic things you need and bathrooms are shared but hey you pay very cheap for it. It doesn't have AC and its gets uncomfortable sometimes at night but what you pay is what you get!

I was a bit sceptIcal after reading reviews but we were pleased we went for this hotel. It is excellent value and a great location if you don't mind the shared bathrooms. No breakfast but the cafe next door is open 24 hours and offers a great breakfast sandwich.
