    Close to downtown, making it accessable to everything. Cheap compared to the others. In the first impression you may think you made a wrong choice, but believe me, I visited another hotel and I must say, this is much better...

    In my room the wifi wasnt working (low signal). The room is not that clear, there was hair over the bed and in the towel, I saw some flies, probably because of the downtown area, wich have a lot of beggars walking around. The funny thing that happened is that I received a call from another guest complaining that he saw a mouse on his room (lol), so I said to call front desk and closed the door gap of my room with a towel... There was nothing else I could do anyway...

    The room was ok but for the price should have been better

    The breakfast was a joke - a very bad joke - basic and nothing like the 'continental breakfast' I paid for. The location was absolutely terrible. There were crowds of vagrants outside the hotel 24 hours a day, screaming, shouting, fighting, urinating and defecating in the street. It was impossible to sleep due to the noise outside and it was unsafe to leave the hotel after dark. I advise people not to stay at this hotel.

    Price

    The street outside of the hotel had a large populous of homeless people that were more than likely also dependent on some form of substance. They were very polite though and every encounter I had with them was pleasant. One of them was a Vietnam war vet and he walked with me for about 4 blocks and we exchanged stories of our life experiences. I was greeted every day with good morning and when one of them was blocking the trash can, he moved out of the way for me when he saw that I wanted to use it. He said,"excuse me ma'am" as he moved. The point is that I had normal social exchanges with them and they were very polite and (more than likely) harmless. I would recommend not letting your guard down as desperate situations can cause crime of opportunity.

    The room was pretty nice until I discovered bed bugs. Yes, I had one crawling on me. I didn't bother to complain to the manager because I had already been in the room for 4 days, so not much could have been done. I had to package up all my clothing and items into plastic bags, now they are in my freezer to kill them. Then I'll have to transfer them to the wash, hopefully kill them.

    It is close to Union Square (the center) and it has low rates. The room provides all what you need for your staying

    It is located in a bad area (many homeless around the hotel). The breakfest is poor (only muffins to eat). The corridors and the elevetor are dirty. It is not possible to use the phone in the room to make a call outside the hotel.

    The beds were very soft & comfortable. Awesome Vietnamese restaurant 2 doors down if you like Pho!!

    The area was awful. My daughter & I were scared to leave our room due to the crazy crack heads screaming & yelling on the streets outside our window (of which I found a glass crack pipe lodged in our window seal!) Spend the extra fifty bucks to stay a few blocks down in the "real" Union Square!!!

    Unkind guy at reception. Never found him at his desk, always outside smoking a cigarette, furthermore my mobile had no coverage and I urgently needed to make an international phone call, I asked him to help me, but he didn't give me any kind of assistance. The reception girl of the orange hostel, a few meters down O'farrell st., Was much more helpful with me, in spite she knew I was not a guest of her hostel! About the room: very dirty blanket on the bed, window faulty, no window or aerator in the bathroom, W.C. waiste system not always working properly, dusty floor, room daily cleaning insignificant, no chair in the room (I had to sit on the night table - the blanket on the bed was too dirty to sit on it). This was supposed to be the deluxe room! And when I arrived they even pretended from me to pay a deposit for this!

    Helpful and friendly staff. Other young travelers

    Hallways are not that clean. Location is central, but a lot of homeless people are located around the hotel, and in the lobby. I personally have no problems with this, but some people seemed to feel uncomfortable about this.

    Cheap.

    The guy passed out on the sidewalk and the people screaming at each other outside my window at all hours of the night.

    I liked nothing about this hotel.

    Room and bathroom was very small, foyer was in need of repair and was uninviting, there was a strange (homeless?) lady occupying one corner of the entrance and asked me for change, located in a dubious area with a lot of street noise. I only stayed one night out of three and moved to better accommodation. I was advised to contact Booked.net to advise of the cancellation which I did but was not afforded a refund. While I expected to have to pay for the night of the day that I left I feel that I should be refunded one night's rate as I gave more than 24 hours notice.
