          Central location close to shops, Union Square, and even the Civic centre where I caught a musical. Close to the BART station. Friendly staff; I was grateful that I was allowed to change the room as the first one I was given was close to a roof landing and I felt unsafe. Was pleased to find a hair-dryer in the room and a bath robe. Appreciate the provision of a sink as there was no attached bathroom.

          The room and the towels smelt musty. The bedlinen appeared musty too. The bath robe smelt clean so I laid it on the bed and slept on it as I didn't trust the looks of the bed linen :-)

          The room was not big, but I could feel comfortable.In the morning free meal (coffee and muffins) were provided. I think that it generally satisfied customers needs.

          My room (without bathroom) was near to the stairs. In the night, it was so noisy.

          Value and cleanliness for $65 a night was fantastic. Even the communal showers were clean. A great place to stay when you are on a budget.

          Absolutely wonderful and friendly staff! Super location, convenient, in the heart of downtown SF

          The rooms are very small. not soundproofed at all, all noise in corridors comes in thru the tramson windows.

        • Older travelers

          Hotel was clean and efficient. Location for the price is unbeatable. The cheapest rooms have shared showers and toilets but each room has a sink. The shower is only shared by four rooms and access was fine. If you want a clean, efficient room at the lowest possible price this is the hotel for you. Europeans should feel right at home here. Staff was excellent and friendly.

          Rooms are very compact. It can be tight for a couple but should be fine for one. Couples should pack light.

          Excellent place to stay in the middle of SF business district, especially if you plan to attend a conference at the moscone. Inexpensive, and the only reflection of the cost is the size of the room. Well kept, well managed, very nice.

          I guess the lady who checked us in was not very friendly but she may have simply been having a bad day. The rooms were small but that was expected.

          The Mosser offered great value for someone traveling alone to San Francisco. The location near the Moscone Center and Union Square is perfect; why pay for a big room if you're only there to sleep?

          The TV in the room was mounted on the ceiling, and with such a small room, you have to strain to watch it. A wall-mounted TV (doesn't need to be huge) would be much better.

          Very small room, bad breakfast, no internet, everything is small.

          The room was too tiny, they were pushing it a bit. The location is good, but you are in a small box. Breakfast is yucky. Cleaning staff 'forget' your room' Bed was greasy -pillows and comforter need a good wash.

          The location was perfect. The value for money was very good too. Also, i have to say that the Doorman/Bellman - Marlon was brilliant; Very helpful and friendly.

          There were no drawers or cupboards in the room, no storage at all, which was difficult in the small space the we had. Some of the desk staff didn't seem to know much about the area - found it hard to give advice, whilst others were quite helpful in giving us maps etc.

          The staff are very nice. I like their service as well as the location.

          The tray of plastic flower is too big.

          Old building with small accommodations but well kept and very comfortable - didn't feel cramped to me. Reminded me of an old city apt. Lots of character and many nice touches make it feel like someone is really paying attention to the guest experience. Location was great and it was at least $100/night cheaper than any of the other quality hotels in the area.

          Price. Convenient location. Helpfulness of staff. Lots of coffee, tea & muffins free in the lobby in the morning.
