This place needs better reviews! It's obvious that the new management are working really hard to improve facilities and decoration. Looked like there was just the flooring to change whilst we were there. Clean facilities, if there is a problem just let reception know - all staff are friendly. Really nice breakfast area with backpacker vibe, good basic selection of... More

This is located a 5 minute walk from the city and a 20 minute walk from the bus terminal. We chose a room with no bathroom, which worked for us as they were kept clean. There could be more showers though. The rooms were a good size and looked like they had recently been updated as had the reception area... More

There are now microwaves and a small fridge. Additional electrical outlets and the new bed headboard has electric and USB for charging your mobile devices. Good customer service... More

Checked in and room was very small and two separate beds where as we were a couple. Receptionist was nice enough to show me a couple other rooms and let me pick a nicer one. Was at the... More

This hotel is well managed and clean. Hostel Style with shared bathroom and shower. The room was neat and well equipt and the continental breakfast was a nice touch. The neighborhood area can be a little intimidating late at night so be aware.

Nice hotel, fair breakfast with coffee, milk, bread, jam, butter, fruits, cereals, etc. The location would be wonderful if it wasn't for the homeless on the nearby. In fact, I wasn't disturbed by them, however I must say it isn't pleasant... On the other hand, the staff is excellent, specially Fernando, always eager to help!!!

Given the sheer cost of accommodation in San Francisco, this hotel/hostel provides a value for money alternative. I stayed in a private twin bedroom with shared bathroom facilities. The room was exactly as per the advertised images. Ongoing renovations were apparent, and on a whole this was very clean and modern place. The location is excellent in terms of proximity... More

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
SoMa
South of Market (SoMa), has an urban and sophisticated vibe, but you're more likely to find big nightclubs and lots of industrial loft residences than you are to find boutique shopping. Although it’s the epicenter for tech startups in the city, visitors will be able to do more than just business - museums, top quality restaurants, and the San Francisco Giants now call this neighbourhood home. Most of its freeway-sized streets may not capture the same character as other neighbourhoods in the city, but pockets of charm, like South Park, can still be found throughout its side streets.
