2.0 Poor

8.2 Very good
Pros:Value for the money. Clean facilities and comfortable room. Good and reliable Wi-Fi. Central location very accessible by BART and Muni close to shops, tourist attractions and restaurants.
Cons:Noise from alley at night or early morning, hotel staff is aware and provides ear plugs in your room but not really helpful. There was a strong smell of weed on my bathroom at night don't know where it was coming from but had to turn on extractor and close bathroom door and turn on ceiling fan and open room door to air out smell.
6.0 Okay
Pros:Overall, it was clean and good downtowns location.
Cons:Room had a musty smell and the walls are pretty thin, hence bery noisy- I guess that is why they give you ear plugs.
8.0 Very good
Pros:The location was excellent, the price very affordable, and the staff was very kind. The rooms were very clean and cared for by attentive staff.
Cons:The orientation of the bed was awkward, along with the pillows being very uncomfortable which impacted my sleep. The room got uncomfortably hot, but was held in check by an adequate fan. The bathroom was incredibly tiny and awkward.
7.1 Good
Pros:Very clean rooms staff came everyday and restocked. Staff was nice and friendly.
Cons:No bathroom or shower in your room. No sink in the bathroom in the hallway. You have to wash your hands in your room which is kinda gross touching handles. We didn't know that before we stayed. And room are no bigger then 7 feet by 7 feet. Clean but so small. And breakfast is literally a muffin. With nothing else in your room even a fridge I would have liked a breakfast.
8.5 Very good
Pros:Great location near Downtown BART stations and Moscone Center.
Cons:The room that I had this time had the sink located outside of the bathroom, near the bed and desk.
8.8 Very good
Pros:If you don't mind the shared bathrooms, The Mosser is a superb place to stay and it's right in the heart of San Francisco. Best of all, it's a great value especially for a European style hotel at a prime location! Very friendly staff and we felt very comfortable during our 5-night stay.
