The hotel is located at one of the worst locations in San Francisco, the street where the hotel is located is full of needles, drug addicts and homeless people. This continues in the other streets with the additional gangsters and drug addicts try to sell you stolen stuff and shouting against you. Definitely not feeling safe at night. Staff is moody and looks like they don't give anything about their guests, probably because of the neighborhood.

Horrible location. The rooms were being refurbished, there were holes on the wall, half painted walls, nasty smell in the rooms.
