    Mid-Columbus Street in SF! Chinatown, North Beach and great Italian restaurants only steps away!

    The place itself is a run down, nasty dump. The family that owns it stinks up the place cooking with curry. No maid service, sheets exchanged once a week, you are issued a roll of toilet paper at check-in. This place is tolerable if you plan to spend little or no time in your room.

    Location is great. It is basic unpretentious hotel with great price.

    Shared bathroom are very basic; the room could not be very well aired.

    Good

    The staffs of the Europa is nice and helpful. The room of the Europa is very quite and fairly clean. And it is very convinent to walk to shops and restaurants (especially for chinese food fans), walkable to the fisherman's wharf (Pier 39).

    The room I lived (near the trash room) is slightly smelly and the blankets and sheet makes me itching a little bit.

    Cheap & vibrant location.

    My room had mice, and the staff were unhelpful when I complained. Facilities very basic.

    Very good

    I would say only one thing. Great location and better in price but no comfort. If you are looking for a place just to sleepthen you can consider as an option. Hostel mentality...

    Superb

    Excellent value! Clean room. Conveniently located. Excellently met my needs. Would stay again, should the need arise.

    The shower doors need a rubber flap affixed to the bottom to keep the shower water from running out onto the floor. The vending machines need some fine tuning. My room needs a smoke detector. The previously existing one was missing from the mounting bracket.

    Fabulous

    It was great for what we wanted, a cheap place to stay right in the city, for two 20-somethings. It was a lot of fun and the location was awesome, right between Little Italy and Chinatown.

    The only issue with the hotel is that because there is no air conditioning, we had to leave the window open. The location was loud at night time. We also stayed over 4th of July weekend so there were fireworks being set off until late at night.

    Europa is a hostel, and has small private rooms and dorm style rooms with a shared bath. The place is fairly secure with front door buzzer.

    It would be difficult to recommend this hostel because the lodgings are extremely dilapidated and this is not even really a one star accomodation.

    Exceptional

    I like that the service staffs are great! Very friendly. Nice room, huge and cosy for the price that we are paying!

    Don't like the long flight of stairs to get up to the hotel. Take note when you are bringing along heavy luggage. The room has a sink but has not heated water, but we aren't very bothered about it. Room was made prior to our check in but there were still a cluster of hair under the sheets when we moved in. So I can't say how clean it was, but there was definitely no bed bugs for sure.

    The hotel staffs do not bother you, they go about minding their own business. However when approached them to ask for information & direction about the city, they are helpful to provide information. During my stay, a power failure happened along the whole units of the street affecting also this hotel, the hotel staffs are readily on hand to check that the guest are ok & ensure candles are lighted in the common toilets especially if anyone is bathing halfway when the lights are cut off.

    There are no lifts in the hotel which was not indicated in the website. I was given a room on the third floor & it was tiring & a hassle to have to carry 2 heavy luggague all the way up which was upsetting. The hotel is beside a night strip club & along red light district where you will encounter rowdy & tipsy crowd during the night, if one cannot accept this then this is not a hotel for you. Suitable for solo traveller & young adults definately not for couples on honeymoon & families. The location however is accessable by walking to the city, china town & the pier.

    Good

    Great location, cheap, nothing else left.

    Very basic, toilets in hallway and shower doors not fitting properly so a lot of water on the floor. Toilets often blocked. Bed uncomfortable and old bedspread covered in cigarette burns.
