If I could have given this hotel 3.5 I would have. The staff are so friendly and helpful, the location is great and the kitchen/common area is really nice. Plus the beds are ridiculously comfy. However, you can tell that this hotel are really making steps to improve but I feel that they may still have a little way to...

I give this place 5 stars, not because it's a 5 star hotel but for what you pay you definitely get a 5 star experience. The staff is incredibly friendly and willing to help with anything, the rooms are clean, the beds are comfy the bathrooms and showers clean too! The rooms are on the smaller side so pack accordingly...

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...

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...

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.

Staying in SoMa

Neighbourhood Profile
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.
