Would stay there again
Definitely worth the cost, no frills but not bad at all! Staff very helpful. Walls are thin and rooms could use ceiling fans as the air was a bit stagnant. Shared bathroos were tolerable. Perfect if u plan on spending most of your vacation out and about and just use it to crash.

Inexpensive Hotel
We stayed at this hotel for 5 nights total. On the first day our flights got delayed and we couldn't check in at this hotel on time. Be sure to check your arrival time and plan ahead, because we didn't know the hotel would not accept late check-ins and didn't have anywhere else to go (were lucky to crash at a friend's). Pros: The restrooms were mostly well kept. There are 2-3 on each floor. If you shower in the evening, it's usually quieter than the morning. The hotel is close enough to downtown/Union Square area and you can walk in 20-30 minutes. Also, they offer free coffee in the office, and they have coin-op laundry machines inside the hotel. Cons: The hotel staff was not friendly/helpful! We left our food in the fridge in our room. However, the cleaning staff accidentally touched the outlet and the fridge got unplugged. When we went to tell the receptionist that our food got spoiled, she simply said "okay, maybe I'll make a note." Nothing else. The wifi did not work for half of the time when we were there. The staff told us it was a "systematic problem" and "the entire neighborhood" was down. But as soon as we got to the French library next door, their wifi worked fine. I think this hotel just has really bad wifi overall. It can be very noisy at this hotel. They allow people to play music till past 11PM. Although we didn't go to bed that early, it might be something to consider.

Encore, encore!
Fantastic hotel, would definitely stay there again. It was centrally located and within walking distance to most of the major tourist attractions. The bathrooms were lovely and kept very clean, and the staff were friendly and helpful. If you're looking for a good hotel at a decent price in SF, this is the one for you.
