2.0 Bad


2.0 Bad

Cons:It was loud and scary area. No fan no air felt suffocated. Got there at 9pm and I left at 1am found somewhere else to stay. Overpriced for a hell hole. Pitty I can’t get my money back

2.0 Bad

Cons:We didn’t actually get to stay here. Since the front desk was not open past 11 per the website, we had to cancel our first night. Went the second night we had booked and they had tossed our reservation and had no rooms. Still got charged for both nights even though we didn’t stay there at all.

3.4 Poor
Pros:The proximity to Union Square and Powell station was convenient. The immediate neighborhood (the Tenderloin) was dodgy. I wasn't hassled going back and forth, but I was very aware that there were people living on the street, and some who appeared to have varying degrees of mental health/addition issues. The gentleman who received me was polite and professional, so I was pleased about the courtesy.

Cons:The photos posted on this website and others are inaccurate. Perhaps there are rooms that look like that. Mine did not. My bed had two different types of hair on it when I arrived (one black and curly; the other, long and brown). The mattress was covered in plastic, likely for my protection (bedbugs, fleas?). The bed felt like a foam pad on top of planks of particle board. The blanket was a dingy gray and looked like it had not been laundered in 17 years. Someone kept taking the toilet paper in the shared bathroom, so I purchased my own, which I took back and forth with me. When I tried to take a shower, I could not: The entire bathroom had been soiled. The tub was covered in heavy dirt streaks and what appeared to be blood. There were bits of bloody paper towels stuck on the glass; perhaps the person had tried to clean after themselves, but they failed miserably. It was a public health hazard, in my opinion. It seemed that some occupants were actually living there, which didn't make me feel comfortable. I have stayed in some very, very inexpensive places/hostels in traveling, including in the developing world, and none had these issues with respect to the bathroom/bathing facilities. It is too bad - the bathroom itself looked remodeled. But the terrible state of it turned my stomach. I generally don't leave bad reviews, but my friends encouraged me to do so for future visitors. Just know that this place appears to be VERY hit or miss.

7.4 Good
Pros:I like that guests are provided q front door key and that there is not a 24 hour desk smiling and greeting you evwrytime youcomw amd go, small hotels can tend to bw o. The nosey side and we all know that once bias sets in it is over for the defenseless traveler.

Cons:Front desk man has rhe personality of a catty teenager, shotty, spoiled, and kind of a priss about everything thing. It gets old. Also, more towels are needed and there are bugs, lots of bugs.
