        A really cool hostel. We got a good price too but there was construction outside and other loud mechanical noises at like 3am! No AC so you leave the window open. Didn't bother me but some might not like it. Black bedsheets had weird stains...

        I arrived at SFO about 9pm and the reception close at 11 pm. I took a shared ride van to get to the hostel quickly. I was surprised with the size of the bed. It's super wide and two people could stay there. I will stay there again when i come to San Francisco next time.

        The stay is a good value for money. I stayed in a shared room with 3 bulk beds. Pro: good location with access to supermarkets and public transport, though not at the heart of downtown; clean room and bathroom; friendly and helpful staff; free music facilities trial for music lovers; free coffee and apples Con: The room is small... not even enough space for me to open my suitcase; lack of bed lamp in the share room; facilities a bit old; need to do stairs and no lift; front desk is not 24hrs;

        helpful staff and pretty clean amenities

        If you are looking for a hostel this place is pretty good. Staff were really helpful and quick to suggest things like transport to airport, attractions in San Francisco and directions. The actual building and furniture are pretty dated but they are kept clean which is good. About the location, it is not exactly near Union Sq or SFO CBD but it is a good 15 minute walk on a slow pace. So it's do-able but if you're out to explore make sure you have everything because it is not a quick walk.

        Great find!”

        We've been going to SF for over 30 years. Living just down the coast a bit, we like weekend getaways in the city. We've stayed at many hotels, from high end ones near Union Square, to off the beaten track ones. The Music City Hotel is a great small lower-end hotel, in the style of older boutique hotels - meaning small rooms, with shared bathrooms. It was clean, quiet, and comfortable, and a great deal for the money. The location is in Polk Gulch, where we've never stayed, but will return. There are lots of great restaurants and it was a lovely walk to the theater district. I definitely recommend this place.

        The location is the greatest privilege about this hotel. It will take you around 15-20 mins walking to the bustling Union Square. You can also reach some bus stops and cable car stations within a few steps. There are some good cafe nearby for breakfast, and some Spanish and Thai restaurants for dinner.

        Music city hotel is a cheap hotel. Seriously cheap. People might think this could mean they are not good at some services or something. It's okay to be a cynic or criticize others. I must admit I could be neither after staying here for 6 nights. The people at the reception desk are super friendly. They serve nice hot coffee from 9 am to 11 pm! Room is cleaned every day. Yes, you read that correctly! Every single day!!! How many hotels do that these days?! If you are going to be in SF for some work and are near the vicinity of this hotel, don't bother looking to stay anywhere else. I bet you won't regret it!
