It's a pretty good place for the price you pay.Pros: Pretty good location. It is located in an area with lots of restaurants that serve good food. If you have a problem with musicians practicing, playing music in thw basement until 11pm then do not book here. They even warn you on their website.Cons: Having to share a bathroom is not one of my favorite things. Also, felt the room could be cleaner.
Pros: Such a nice hostel for the price. Did not feel like a last minute option.
Bathroom cleaninessPros: Everyone is friendly. Was not worried or paranoid rooming with so many strangers. Cons: Since bathrooms are shared, the hotel should be cleaning them more frequently. People go in and out and not everyone is a clean person. I had to clean the counters because everything was wet and there was no place to set my things. There was water all over the floor and need to be careful how you walk.
MusicPros: I did like that the owner promotes music. I am not a musician, nor do I ever wish to be. But Googling this "Music City" Hotel has a few haters. When I left (today ) 10-09-2015 there was construction adjacent to the hotel (next door) looking inside ... I think there is expansion in the future.
Good for this owner to foster Music. AND young musicians.
It's a hostel!Pros: I like hostels because they're a good value for an area of the city that can otherwise be pricey. The staff is laid back yet professional and knowledgable about the local area. I stayed in a small room with plenty of storage, sink, fridge and TV. I liked having the large window to the courtyard/ open area that you can open completely. Cons: I was worried about getting enough sleep because of the music rehearsal studio that is in the basement. While in my room at 9pm I could hear the band play muffled but clearly. The tv would cover the sound easily. This went on and off till 11. I could hear some construction sounds from next door through the open area out my window until 7pm, but not again until after 9am.
Great for the pricePros: Clean, comfortable, friendly staff. The building has a lot of character and is in a relatively convenient location (a little far from the BART station).Cons: Not a lot of noise insulation from other rooms or hallway.
