The hotel ha a great location. Very close to a Walgreens store and several restaurants. It's near to Union Square and the Civic Center. The rooms and the beds are very comfortable. The bathrooms are shared but there's no time limit. Great human resource, they can give you tips to start your experience in San Francisco.

Good located! The room we had was way to expensive. Not enough bathrooms. The towels smelled very bad. We had multiple flys in the room and doves in front of our window. The bed was clean. I think the rooms differ a lot so maybe we just didn't got a nice room.

I would propbably stay here again due to the professionalism of the staff. Room was messy though as I was sharing it with several other travelers and the refrigerator on premise needed to be cleaned out before we arrived.

Great location, very clean! Fresh sheets, towel, and clean bathrooms! Free coffee. I was visiting a friend nearby and this was the perfect location. It's a safe location and the service and staff are super friendly.

Lucas was extremely gracious and helpful, and the hotel location and price were great too. The rooms were clean, quiet and pleasant. Good to know that something like this is available in SF. Thanks, and hopefully see you soon.

The room was quite okay, but if they sell it as a hostel too, there should be also a public area to meet other people and more activities too. Most people in a hostel come alone and want to get to know each other, normally. The bathrooms are also separate on the floor and not for more than one Person.

What a cool concept for a chic boutique hotel turned musician-themed hotel. Very cool art deco, concert posters, and musical paintings on the hallways and inside the hotel rooms. The rooms were clean, big, and perfectly fine for the cost point. Nestled on Nob hill, perfect place to explore the city!

The guys at front desk charged me $10 more than what is mentioned in my booking receipt. This is the first time a hotel charged me more than booking total. Extremely bad staff and service. Please look into this team.
