This is a Trusted Review. Why?

It is cheap, considering that all other places are more expensive, BUT it is smelly, a little bit dirty and deteriorated. The place is about 30min from Downtown. San Francisco, except for downtown and a few nice places is a dangerous place, and El Capitan is in the dangerous part of the city. They can not keep your luggage after you check out, which can be a great incovenience. Overall, I do not reccommend El Capitan mostly because of the location.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

Ok for price but not the cleanest but not to bad, staff not over helpful but just do what they have to bathrooms need a lot of work as old and not very clean, about 25 minutes from fisherman's wharf, cheap Mexican restaurant close and also plenty of bars and clubs. If I go back to SF I would probably stay there again as for price was cheap ideal for travelers with low budget.

This is a Trusted Review. Why?

At first glance the place is rather run-down, old and slightly smelly. But in fact the rooms were nice, the shared toilets was all good and the people working there was friendly and helpful.
All in all a nice place to stay in San Fran, when travelling on a low budget.
