          Very good location in downtown San Francisco. Walking distance to BART. Clean and comfortable rooms. The restrooms are not always clean but that's not usually a problem. The TV is small and old, but hey, for this price what would you expect? Overall, an excellent experience.

          Good hotel for travellers with limited budget”

          Location

          The North Beach Hotel is situated in a very good and safe location - close to China Town and Little Italy, with many restaurants around. You can walk to the Coit tower and to the Fisherman's wharf (up to 30 mins walk) if you don't want to take the public transport. It is also not far from San Francisco cable cars. My room was quiet (facing backyard) although I could clearly hear neighbours once they moved in. Not sure whether they have rooms facing the street, if yes - the street is very busy and therefore it may be noisy. Wifi works well enough to check all the tourist stuff, but it was not fast enough if you want to upload and share photos for example. The room I stayed in was without a bathroom (there were shared bathrooms in the corridor) but a sink was provided, which was very convenient. The room also had fridge and a microwave. There is no hair dryer but you can borrow one at the reception. Reception offers air shuttle to the airport but beware the driver tip: they quote you a price at the reception but the driver asks you to pay $2 more due to a compulsory tip - one thing I will never understand when travelling to the US. The place is overall clean - clean room, clean shared bathroom etc It is totally enough if you are on a budget and if you are here to visit the city but do not expect first class service, mind you - it's not a five star hotel. They do not serve breakfast but recommend a great place for traditional American breakfast which is 5 mins away walking. The room is not cleaned every day - only once every three days I think. Overall - good value for money provided high San Francisco prices, would stay there again unless I can afford a better place.

          all good with price!”

          I stayed for 6 days, and I appreciated! I mean, I don't understand why many of people here expect such a very high standard from what you would pay here. You can't compare to other 5-star hotel while you wanna pay this price don't you? so this is my opinion and i really wanna share so you can decide carefully. the location is good. it's next to china town and to metro just 10 mins. if you got many stuffs, there is an airport shuttle bus then, 9 dollars. and what I like is it isn't located in very downtown, i mean if you travel alone and don't like crowded people, this is a good choice for location. and nothing bad happened to me. hopeless people are much more in downtown, not here. about the complain over the bathroom and cleanliness. it's share in the hall way, i know the hall way is a bit creepy because of interior design but all safe. it's share but it's very separated. there is hot water for you. and it's dirty because of visitors, mates always make it cleaned every day. so what are you guys blaming for? the room is very small but it's all you want. there is a big hotel you can stay all day. but this one is for traveler. for those who just back sleep at the night and ready to go at the morning. only one thing is would complain for the room here is mosquitoes in my room. i gotta kill 2-4 of them every night. most of all, i really appreciated their warm welcome. they always responded when I talked or asked. the only mistake they made is the poor on managing just sometimes. so I hope this would help you decide.

          Price, value, location

          Overall, this hotel is reasonable for the price. I have stayed here many times before because it is affordable and gives you the accommodations that you require. Just remember that you will have to share bathrooms and the rooms are not air-conditioned. Also the Wi-Fi can be a little sketchy at times. Other than that it is in a great location and is at least half the price of most hotels in downtown San Francisco.

          You get what you pay for...”

          If you're looking to save money and can live with a tiny room and a shared bathroom, this might be the place for you. The facility is dingy, but relatively clean. The mattress was comfortable and the wifi worked. But it truly is no frills accommodation. The front desk people were friendly and helpful and although it says it's in North Beach, it's right on the cusp of Chinatown and the Financial District. It's a 15-20 minute walk to a variety of the tourist spots, and there are a gazillion restaurants nearby.

          Free wifi doesn't seem to work in the rooms, but hallway it does Shared bathrooms, but plentiful enough that you don't have to wait - do bring your own soap and shampoo tho Can be hard to find nearby free or inexpensive parking

          For downtown SF, it's really hard to beat the value for this place. The location is fantastic, especially if you love Chinatown or night life (altho it's a lot of "naughty bars" in that area). Very clean, lovely room with great windows. Many nearby restaurants, morning cappuccino is right next door. Contrary to other reviews, the service was friendly and efficient. I totally loved the place and will definitely stay there whenever I come to SF again.

          Shared bathrooms are not always clean or dry

          The North Beach is a prefectly adequate place to stay right in the heart of SF's action district Noth Beatch. Walking distance to high end shopping, Chinatown and the warf the hotel is cheap solution to a potentially expensive problem. It is not a cheery interior, its shabby and run down but it also has an old world charm. The hotel has had difficulties with shady guests in the past and maintains a strict list of expectations that can come across as rude. Keep your expectations low, your youth hostel memories fresh and your hotel vs citylife ratio in balance and the North Beach Hotel is a great place to rest your head.

          Location, price, staff

          Let's start by saying this is a no-frills hotel. But for the price, you certainly can't get anything better. It has shared washrooms and showers that were surprisingly clean. The room was clean and very quiet even with the window opened. No small feat considering that is right by Chinatown. The bed was good, a little small perhaps, but I knew that I was getting a single bed, so no complains. Unlike other low priced hotels I staid, the staff were very friendly and professional. My only complain would be the wi-fi; it was too slow, even for checking emails, almost useless.

          The hotel is located between the food-goody Chinatown, the cultural hub North Beach, and the financial district. The room is small and you have to share the bathroom (one person use at a time, no big deal). However, it is quite clean and organized. There's a fridge and a microwave for you to heat your supermarket food if you want, but seriously, it's SF, go out and get some delicious stuffs right outside the door. The airport shuttle is quite convenient and affordable as well.

          Overall stay is reasonable, but the room is small. Another inconvenience thing is the bath room is not inside the room. The hotel is located near the downtown and looking for food is not a problem. We used to walk all the way to Pier 39 from the hotel (it takes about 30 minutes walk) but it is worth it as we could explore the city better in this manner (little Italy, Chinatown...) Yes, Pier 39 and the surrounding area is a place not to be missed!

          SF is really expensive. If you're staying for a week or two, this place has weekly rates which are a really good deal. I stayed in a few different weekly hotels and this was by far the best. It used to be a college dorm so you'll be staying in cheap dorm rooms, but they are clean, and they keep the bathrooms pretty clean all things considered. Some guests can be loud so if you don't mind the street noise ask for a room on the outside (most rooms' windows face an internal courtyard which captures noise). Staff is friendly but can be a little slow as they do everything by paper.

          A small hotel at a good location”

          Very well located, big fridge and microwave in rooms.

          The rooms were pretty small, but if you only plan on sleeping in the hotel, it is big enough. I had some of the best service when it came to book a shuttle to go to the airport, the night lady was extremely helpful. However the other guys were so-so. Be careful, the bathrooms are shared. Not a problem for me since they are cleaned often. The only thing that would make me hesitate about going back to the hotel is the oh-so slow internet. I was completely unable to upload a picture on internet. In 2012, I was expecting a lot better. Very good experience in general.

          Simple but pleasant room”

          This hotel was exactly what I needed; inexpensive and fantastic location. You do share a bathroom but the showers are private. I never felt unsafe and the room was clean. I would absolutely stay here again

          Good place to stay for solo traveler. ”

          Location. Staffs. Quality of the room.

          If u r a solo traveler n don't want to spend too much money on the accomadation I think it's the best place for u to stay. The location of the hotel is good. It's pretty close to Chinatown. Also the major bus stops. The hotel room itself is nice too. U have ur own fridge, TV, sink n microwave. The only thing tht u might need to adjust is Ull have to share restroom n shower with other travelers. But...for me it's all good! :)

          Adequate”

          Cleanliness, price, location

          -room was clean but small -bathrooms are shared but also relatively clean -no A/C -wireless was essentially non-existant on the third floor -damage deposit ($30) was not mentioned prior to arrival (only had CND$) -close to my new workplace and very central downtown to restaurants, chinatown etc.
