A place for Younger Travelers
Small Rock N Roll themed hotel in the Tenderloin district of SF, seemed safe but will encounter local street dwellers. Friendly staff, staff not always available on site. Suitable for younger travelers, shared restroom/showers unless you occupy a "suite", several stairs required to get to room. Found beds to be very noisy and not comfortable. Room and common areas clean.

My Stay at Music City Hotel
This is a fun hotel. Lots of pictures, old and new, of the music scene in San Francisco. There is music coming from the studio in the basement all day. So you have to enjoy rock and roll. The rooms are clean and comfortable. Hadn't realized it is also a hostel, so lucky to get a private bathroom. There aren't many available. Great proximity to restaurants and nightlife. My only warning to someone who has never stayed before...There is no elevator and the stairs are a killer. They are okay is you have young legs, which I don't, but if this is not a problem, I would recommend this hotel/hostel to anyone.

Rock but no roll
Good things -- room was large, clean, quiet and bed quite comfortable. Not So Good things -- wifi non-existent, no heat in room (could see my breath), 4th floor walk up on narrow stairs without bannister, cloud of smoke walking in due to guests smoking in entry, no in-room coffee setup, shampoo, soap and lotion subpar, no tissues, 2 hangers in closet, no assistance with luggage.
