Online pictures and descriptions about the Pontiac Hotel did not match the place at all.

I was a little worried about staying here after reading reviews, but it was completely fine! Staff were helpful, rooms and facilities are fine. Location is great close to downtown, few homeless but they dont bother you at all. Would stay here again


I felt pretty comfortable at the hotel and togetherwith the staff there. They rooms are fine, not fancy but a nice place to sleep, relax, watch TV etc. Nice bonus: breakfast for free, they offer a fridge for personal stuff and computer to use. Was just a little disapointed they don't offer WiFi in the rooms, only downstairs @ the lobby and kitchen/ meeting room. All in all I would totally recommend that place to stay for a couple days to check out SF and feel safe at the hotel!

The worst hostel ever seen. Crazy people outside, dysfunctional WiFi inside, not that friendly stuff and speechless cleanness... Don't book it.
