            The room was a decent size. The internet worked consistently and was of good speed. The room had a fridge and an old, basic microwave. Also a table and 2 chairs.

            While the location was central, there were a lot of dodgy looking people in the area and I was afraid on the street even in the day time. It was also a fair way from the tourist attractions and you need to take at least 2 buses to get places. The advertiesed breakfast was a bit of a joke - help youself to a Danish pastry, mini cupcake or pack of instant porridge and take back to your room. No plates supplied, just a plastic spoon and polystyrene cup. And a pot of weak coffee on a heating device. The hotel is poorly maintained and old. The lift smelt like it had mould living in it and I wondered if I would catch anything bad. There are many much better looking places, even the hostels looked better.

            The hotel was located in waking distant to most of the tourist attrations in San Fransisco.

            The hotel gave an impression of poor maintainace and shabbiness. The room was dark and small. I miss a bedside table. A big TV cabinet stood in front of the window and excluded the day light. The illumination was bad. The double bed was too small and the bed clothes might not have been quite clean as one got fleabits there.It was impossible to get two keys, and the breakfast was not continental.

            Exceptionally approachable/friendly staff. Felt safe as a woman solo traveller and plenty of nearby small cafes serving breakfast etc.

            Linen (sheets/towels etc) fresh and updated bathroom facilities were clean - but my room stunk to high heaven and windows sealed shut with filth. Curtains ancient and rotten with mould. I decided to stay for location, friendliness + hotel clientelle who all seemed respectable folk appreciating the budget nature of this hotel.

            Eventhough the bulding was old, but the Hotel was clean and basic, value for money.

            There is a "smell" in the building, maybe because its old, but I did not mind it as its clean. but I know one of my friends did not like it.

            This hotel was absolutely awful, staff were arguing with other guests when we arrived, the carpet in the room had holes burned in to it which we were told was because the building next door had burned down and the rooms on that side had been damaged and never fixed, there was no lock on the bathroom door, the "continental breakfast" was a small table at the reception that had coffee and buns that only one person could be at any one time. I wouldn't recommend this hotel to anyone. The location was fine but there were plenty of other reasonable hotels nearby.

            I booked at Mathila but was informed by email that they didn't have a private room so they moved me to what they called their 'delux boutique hotel', the Amsterdam Hotel, which was up the street. Well, it was hardly that; in fact, it was a modest backpackers place, so I can only imagine what the Mathila was like! Still, the location was great! I didn't bother about the free breakfast, as the shared kitchen and common room were substandard.

            Very bad experience. I booked a room with 3 single beds, but actually there is only one 1.2meter width bed in the room. The room is not clean, very disappointed.

            Very disappointed.

            The location, and price for that location was reasonable. It's pretty close to everything. Hotels in San Francisco are very expensive.

            Very run down and old, only muffins and coffee machine for breakfast, which was on a stand near the check in window, no tables or chairs. Very old lift, no automatic doors. Drunk people screaming through the passage ways woke everyone up at 2am, and they weren't removed from the hotel, I was woken up and the yelling went on for 2 hours. A poor apology was given by the hotel receptionist the next day. Renovators started hammering and banging very early too!

            Torn blankets , and bathroom need a change over for all the fixtures For the amount 75$ with tax per night is not worth the room shifted to a near by hotel with better clean facility for the same price

            Needs to do freshen the rooms with fixtures and new blankets

            It's an old but clean hotel. Do not expect something like Holiday Inn

            There was a strong food smell in the room that comes from the restraunts near the hotel.

            The girl at the front desk was nice and very helpful although I have to say the room needs some renovations. For example, the door that makes a lot of noises, the outlets not working...The toilet handle didn't come back to the original position after flushing and I noticed that the sound of flushing did not stop, so I had to manually pull the handle back..which was okay though. Anyway it wasn't bad at all for its price. There was a shuttle service to the airport, so that was good, too. If you are traveling by yourself or with your friend, this would be a good choice.

            Location, clean good room.

            Impossible to sleep - drunk people coming in after 3am, crashing around, arguing and being sick - complained to reception who investigated but did nothing to resolve the problem, noise continued until 5.30am at which point we left to catch a train - walls are paper thin so can't recommend to stay there if it is important to get a good night’s sleep.

            It was cheap.

            It did not smell very nice in the hotel and the breakfast is not continental. The breakfast is a few muffins in the reception area of the hotel which didn't smell nice.

            The room was always cleaned, more than necessary. Location is nice.

            Heating was not controllable by myself, therefor the room was too warm, I had to leave the window open nearly all the time, a huge waste of energy. Furthermore, the heating made some noise every evening for 2-3 hours. It was best to stay out of the room at this time.
