The hotel itself was ok for the money that we paid. Clean room, some shared showers and toilets were clean too (you need to do little research and possibly use showers+toilets in other floors too). Breakfast was nice. The problem is totally scary neighborhood full of drug addicts and homeless people. Last nigh there was a shooting below our windows....

Yes, this is a dodgy area but the homeless people are harmless. The hotel is old but they are trying to improve things. The breakfast area is great and the coffee is good and I really enjoyed the cinnamon toast. The beds are new and the room is small but comfy. The floors are old carpet and they have shared...

In a nutshell, I would suggest staying here. The price is better than any other you'll find in the area, the sheets are clean and the folks are nice. Fresh fruit at breakfast :) Yes, the rooms are small, but the hotel is being renovated and you can see the changes and hard work the hotel is putting forth to...

I booked this hotel at the very last minute and I admit that it was mistake. The area is super creepy and I was kind of scared when I had to come back to the hotel. The common restroom wasn't always clean so I was also kind of worried when I had to go and you could hear all the...

We chose this place last minute after Frontier cancelled our flight. We saw that it had 3 stars so I was expecting average quality. It was 1 star quality. The rooms were not all numbered so we had to guess which was ours. All of our bed linens had stains. My bed sheet smelled like mildew. My friends had random...

This would have to be the worst Hotel as they call themselves but this is a HOSTEL shared bathrooms and dirty facilities. In the worst dangerous neighbourhood in San fran , you are taking a big risk staying here. We stayed because I saw this on hostels own web site and also on another booking site and reviews were a...

I'm a minimalist kind of guy so the fact that this place made my skin crawl is not to be taken lightly. When we arrived we were given a room with two single beds with no pillows or blankets. Tiny tiny room. No tv, more like a walk in closet. We asked for a double bed and got one. So...

Beware of this place. don't go near it! getting to it you need to pass by drug addicts and dunks. The sheets were dirty and had hairs on them, and the bathrooms were dirty. The receptionist was nice enough to tell us it would be ok if we leave after the first night, however they decided to double charge us...

As per other reviews, this is a Hostel, not a Hotel. The location is good in terms of centrality, but I would advise against venturing outside too much after dark - if you do, go via 7th rather than 6th. Our room was OK - seemed clean enough, but it wasn't what was advertised - we were given two single...

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.
