    Bad neighborhood. Don't come here at night alone. Stay on a main street as long as possible - do not take shortcuts.

    Nice place from the HI Hostels family and they have a great bar. However, the neighborhood is dangerous for you to walk at night.

    Incredibly cheap, by SF standards. Surrounding area is a bit scary, with all the homeless people. But I guess that's just SF. ;-)

    Nothing special about this place. The guy at the reception was a douche as well (probably the dutch they say below). I'd try the other two options here before going here again

    El staff es muy amigable y dispuesto a ayudarte. Las habitaciones son pequeñas pero cómodas. Lo malo es el barrio, si no te molestan los drug dealers y los homeless es una opción buena y barata.
