Cheap, clean, simple and great location. Walkable to many great attractions.

The price was cheaper than competitors .. I'm sorry to see it a pattern trend concerning some of the cheaper hotels at orbit. I don't know if it's a bad taste with orbit or if the blame is on the hotels however they seem to always slip different guidelines and restrictions by U that swindle you into purchasing something you are not satisfied with. No matter how unfair they usually in tend to gravitate toward the hotel leaving it ultimately up to them, leaving the customer screwed.

the only thing that was very accommodating about this hotel was they was able to check me in early. the room was small and the restroom set up was not convenient.

Want to experience the Bohemian Lifestyle of San Francisco? This is your spot. First of all - if you want parking, an iron, mini coffee maker and a bathroom in your room - stop here and move on. This is more like a residence home of the seventies and eighties where people who were passing through the city would stay at an economical rate. That means, no frills, sink in your room, bathroom and showers in the hallway - yep - you share. The location is excellent - you have access to Chinatown and North Beach right outside the door - of course the Financial District is one block away but most people staying at the hotel aren't there to put together a prospectus on a social media app to replace salesforce and twitter. It's a place to sleep, clean up and spend your time visiting the city.

This is a hotel where low income and homeless live! They rent out a few rooms to unsuspecting tourist! The room was old and smelly. The mattress was lumpy and one sided. (A overweight person lived there) The room was the size of a broom closet. The furnace was loud and you roasted. But the staff was nice and it was clean. That's why the ratings

Nice room, small but it works. Nice and helpful staff.

Have stayed there before and always enjoy my stay. Very simple rooms which are clean as are the bathrooms in the hallways. Can't beat the price and location.

Hotel has no air condition and windows are Always left Open for ventilation but windows have no window screens so Mosquitoes and bugs get I ! Room too small and no coffee maker. Many bathrooms on floor but all not Always working

The hotel and room was well appointed, especially for being in an older building. The room (double bed) was clean and maid service was great. Our room was on the third floor, facing Columbus Ave, and had two large windows, a small fridge, small closet, and chest of drawers. The beds were comfortable enough, although I didn't sleep under the sheets due to the heat. We were nervous about the shared bathrooms and showers, but both were updated spaces with enough room and privacy. They got dirty towards the end of the day as you would expect, but we survived by wearing flip flops to protect our feet. The only significant downside, and it wasn't really the fault of the hotel, was the heat. We stayed during one of the record-breaking hottest weekends, and there is no A/C or fan in the room. Even with both of the windows open, it was pretty uncomfortable. At night, with the windows open, the street noise was brutal. As with some "cheaper" hotels, some of the clientele on our floor were very casual. Our first day, we walked down to the lobby to see a man clothed solely in a bath towel around his waist. Several people walked back and forth to the bathroom with very little clothes on. Many guests kept their room doors open at all hours of the day and night. Overall, though, I feel we had a decent experience considering we didn't want to pay more than a few hundred a night at the higher end hotels.

The room was very warm. Even after informing staff it still was warm. The bathrooms smell as and require more cleaning.

I've stayed at this hotel several times over the past 10 years. It's my "go to place" to stay when traveling to SF alone or with a buddy but not with my wife or family. You can't beat its North Beach/Chinatown location. There are numerous & variety of places to eat & drink, in all price ranges, close to the hotel. From the hotel, it's about a 20-minute walk to Union Square & about a 30-minute walk to the Fisherman's Wharf area. Otherwise, within a two-block radius, there are 5 different bus lines (8,10,12,30 & 45) that will get you close to the before mentioned areas. All my experiences with the front desk have been pleasant. The rooms are very basic, small, old but clean. Essentially, it's just a place to sleep on your visit to SF. The beds are comfortable enough. There's a small tv, refig & microwave along with a small desk, small closet & dresser. The wifi worked well for me most of the time. There's a small sink in the room with the toilets & showers down the hall. There are several on each floor. I have always found the toilets & showers to be clean. Also, I've never had trouble finding one available when I needed to use one. This place is for low budget travelers, a step above staying in a hostel, who are looking to stay in a private room. It's NOT for a romantic getaway or a family on vacation. However, for a couple who have low standards for a room, it would be OK. Also, you get the best room rate when you book for a week or longer.

Booked airtravel and hotel thru Orbitz. Great package price, but accomodations was represented for a hotel. This facility offers a room, but you have to out of your room into hall for toilet/shower. That makes this a HOSTEL OR DORM. Lived in SF all my life; this is shady area. Refused to check in.

Came to San Francisco for Game Developers Conference. The hotel was... well, our room was infested with bugs and the bathrooms seemed to never have been cleaned. I would not recommend anyone spend their money here.

The room had a sweet effervescence; the bedspread had a stain, but otherwise ok.

Nostalgic stay to re-live original stay 15 years ago, good improvements and same atmosphere as first stay (St. Paul Hotel); overalll good experience. Walked to SottoMare Italian restaurant (reservations a must) or you'll have a 2 hour probable wait. If you want Chinese cuisine, there are too many good places to visit all by short walking distances.
