All in all was a reasonable price.
Neighbor is very bad. A lot of homeless junkies and car thieves around. Seen two cars got broken in in Stevenson’s street. Blankets were stained.
If it wasn’t for the homeless crackheads screaming and harassing everyday all day and night, it wouldn’t be too bad but I don’t think I will ever stay here again.
If it wasn’t for the homeless crackheads screaming and harassing everyone all day and night, it wouldn’t be too bad but I don’t think I will ever stay here again. A crazy woman screamed profanities all night long and kept us awake most of the night. No peace, very poor shower situation, and bathrooms smelled of urine. the bed was very uncomfortable and broken. Overall bad experience.
The bedroom itself was clean.
I read the other reviews before and didn't expect much. It was better than I thought. My job is working with homeless and marginalized people, so I was used to a crowd what hung out in front of the building. If you go to San Francisco you have to expect seeing homeless people on the street anyways. I felt save in the building and it was quiet, we were on the 5. floor. The bathrooms were a little dirty, especially the toilets. The mattress in our room was too soft.
The hotel looks like a shelter for homeless people. Bathroom was not clean, the room was not clean, everything is old, stinking, not hygienic. You don't want to touch anything because of a possible disease. You don't want to sleep in the bed because it's simple awful. I used the toilet in the nearby shopping center. The shower is also very unhyienic. Book this hotel only if you are searching for some kind of a survival challenge!! Towers and sheets are old and not clean! Homeless people stay all day long in front of the hotel, all night long they play loud music. This was a really very horrible experience for me. This hotel is soo bad!! Don't make my mistake to book a room there!! The sanitary conditions are so awful, you can get any disease there!! I don't understand how such a place can be called a hotel, it's so unclean and dangerous for your health!!!
