    It was small but clean. There is no restaurant or even lobby. The beds are not very comfortable and there are no coffee pots in the room. It is a great location though. It sits in the heart of Union Square.

    The hotel is just a 1-minute walk away from BART station and the Powell Street Cable Car station. Lots of shops and eateries around. Staff are friendly and are ready to give you advice on good restaurants nearby.

    We arrived around 12pm from Melbourne and were able to leave our bags (in a separate room) until our room was ready.Checkout was 11am. I found check ins in the US were either 3pm or 4pm everywhere we went!

    I'm not sure about the laundry facilities. as for a shared bathroom we had a jack and Jill bath but there was no one in the adjoining room. I'm guessing you can request your own bathroom but it'll cost extra
