3/5 Okay

Liked: Staff & service
I was here just for half a day as I had to catch the midnight flight- so take this for its face value. If you’re traveling with valuables, please ensure you have a lock and key as the lockers have only a latch. The facility does sell you lock and key for 6 bucks (need cash!). They also need a 10 dollar security deposit in cash- no cc allowed. I was lucky to have cash in hand. The room was okay. Bathroom was small- just a hop in and out shower. (Carry a spare towel or an old t shirt so you can dry off after the shower and slippers.) They have a hair dryer available. There is a kitchen in the lower floor. Water bottles are also available for 1 dollar cash. (There is a Walgreens just a few steps away). The lobby can be noisy- but it’s fun as it has a communal vibe- many strangers sharing stories and having a good time! There is a note on each of the dorm rooms that states “no sex allowed”. To my horror, around 7pm 2 girls came in to my dorm room and started making out. At first I thought one was in pain with her sighs. Well, they were at it for an hour- till I decided to get up and get ready for the airport. I wasn’t going to be able to sleep with those ungodly voices anyway. Maybe they were high off their minds to even care somebody else was in the room? So yeah- couldn’t sleep but I got to lay my head down for a couple of hours before a midnight flight- which helped. There was something truly San Francisco about the gals coming in and entering into a make-out session.
