Location. And it reminded me of a hostel. The bathrooms are shared on each floor. Could have been a lil cleaner.
It was a clean room in an old building in a party district. I felt safe and slept with the window open. The music downstairs was cool as we had been to hardly strictly bluegrass festival and were coming down off the good times and good music. It is right by a Bart station but we didn't use it. Having the bathroom and shower across the hall was not an issue. It is hard to find free parking but possible. Bring good energy and the parking gods might smile upon you.
