If you are looking for a traditional hotel stay you will hate this, but if you are like me and a student travelling on a serious budget this is everything you need; a bed with clean sheets, a private en suite and a locked door.

Location-wise is good, a lot of restaurants near by. Room is a little bit dark and smaller than expected. But if you only want to crash after walking around downtown or out and about SF, then this is the place. Wi-Fi connection is very strong.

The table and chair were broken, and old microwave. Just few channels on TV. The Indian office push you to park the car in the parking which cost 25 a 30.00. He did not explain you that you can not park when the curb is painted yellow, white or red. Just read the signs very well.

One of the worst places I've ever stayed in, not particularly clean, hallways smell of urine, reception is on the second floor....stairs or a creaky old-fashioned elevator. Too hot, a fan, but attached ot the light so both would have to be on at the same time....Window hard to open with a huge TV stand in front of it....Didn't actually...

the hallways smelt of urine and the curtains had blood stains on it. Outside our window was the dump so we didnt dare open the window!

I've given this a five but it's like comparing a hotel on Earth and a stay in a hospital in a swamp in a war zone which is being fought over by drug warlords on a similar planet to Earth. About the only things that are comparable with a normal hotel are the staff and the wifi which were both...

Adequate. Nothing more. The "continental breakfast" was coffee & tea. My room was clean but nothing more. Because I am willing to settle for nothing more than a clean room & bed at a cheap price, I'd go back to Mithila again. But if I found a hotel in S.F. that I thought might be better, I'd give it a...

We booked a room for 4 people and a double room, and because we didn't put six people but only 5 people in the initial booking, only 5 people can stay in the room! What a nerve! If you pay for rooms with space for six people, six people should be able to sleep in this room no matter what...

I booked a non-refundable room at Mithila on booking.com for an entire week without reading reviews on tripadvidor. This was a mistake and I learned my lesson. It was during AGU, so the room charges were high everywhere in town. I paid $170 per night without a private bathroom. The shower was a down a long hallway, too far away...
