Location is hard to beat; close to restaurants, theaters, shopping, etc. The building is funky and old and wonderful. How many people have ever ridden in an authentic OTIS birdcage elevator that is 100+ years old? Wonderful! Staff was terrific and actually cared about what they were doing. They were friendly and helpful. I had to request a new light bulb in bathroom and the staff person performed the change before we returned from our day out. We were given a huge room with five beds! Eighth floor had nice city views. Room was comfy in November, but might be a bit toasty in August, although SF is not that hot in the summer. Bathroom was small, but clean, and the antique claw-foot tub with surround curtain was cool. Plenty of hot water for an enjoyable shower. Breakfast was decent, and there is a wonderful coffee shop/cafe a few hundred feet down the street. We felt a bit old compared to the average age of the usual hostel crowd, but everyone we encountered was friendly. Restaurants are within easy walks, i.e. Cafe Claude, Farallon, etc. Airport shuttle is $11 (cheaper than Uber). Beds/pillows were comfy.
We are not city people, so the sirens and normal city noises were startling for us and woke us up frequently. If we were used to such things, it would probably not have even disturbed our sleep. Do not expect a new, sterile, shiny hotel! This is a great old hotel and a guest can either bi...complain about everything that is not perfect, or enjoy a unique stay. Your choice. I had to change channels on TV manually (oh, the horror!). SF hotels are PRICY. So many of them has shared bathrooms. We had a private bath at the Dakota. Bring a 10ft extension cord with multi-plug (which I did) and that way you can plug in a hair dryer and use it in the bathroom, and charge all your devices. Otherwise, you might be cursing the paucity of plug-ins.
