    I just stayed here with a friend for SF Pride weekend. I had read reviews beforehand, but none were very recent. We wanted to stay somewhere cheap and near the Castro for festivities, and this was the perfect fit at $59/night (versus another nearby hotel at $200/night). I had read reviews describing rude staff, but they were very polite and professional. The rooms are small and have outdated bedspreads, curtains, and carpet, but have fresh paint and are very clean. Our room had a full size bed, a color TV with Dish Network, a dresser, closet, small desk and a sink (unfortunately no mirror). There were two toilet rooms and two shower rooms on our floor. They were always empty and very clean. I saw the cleaning staff working regularly so it was definitely not a coincidence! We heard other guests in the morning, but it seemed everyone, like us, was out busy enjoying the city. Parking was hard to find, but you'll find that anywhere in the city. I would definitely stay here again, if my budget calls for it.

    For the price you can't beat it. Stayed there for a day, and the next day I called again to stay for another day. They quoted me a (weekend) price which was a bit higher, but didn't make problems to let the room for the same price I paid the night before. The room is clean, the shared bathroom is also clean. I wish they had wifi. No noise or anything, just a great place to stay if you're on a budget.

    You really can't complain about the place, especially when traveling on a budget. I paid a weekly rate of $250 and did NOT have any complaints. The room is a little small for my taste but comes with a sink, TV, twin bed, and a clothes drawer. The shared baths (2nd floor) were clean and barely used. It was extremely quiet and private. Honestly, I ran into only a handful of guests during my time here. I would highly recommend this place to any guests or travelers looking for an expensive hotel in a secure and safe part of town.

    Nice little hotel, with great location. One of the best deals in San Francisco, European style, which means that most rooms share a bath.
    2 water closets and 2 showers on each floors, I've never had to wait for one, and they are kept clean. Staff can be a bit rude, but they work to keep it clean. Parking is hell in this area, but it is right on a lot of bus and train lines, and just 2 block's form the Castro This is not a 5 star hotel, bring your own truffles, but if you are looking for a place to sleep, shower and go out and see the city it is great

    Super cheap weekly rates!  

    Great, great central location.
    Secured entry.
    Private rooms
    Some rooms offer private bath.
    Overnight guests are welcome.
    Super clean bathrooms on each floor (2 per floor)
    Color TV in each room.
    Halls were quiet
    I felt extreamly safe in and out of my room
    Clean sheets/room, smoke free
    Staff was friendly and I think they might live on site

    No wifi (cant even pick up a signal from somewhere else)
    No parking (but no one has parking)
    Dont clean rooms daily, but I liked that because it made me feel like my stuff was more secure.
    No website

    There are a couple other weekly motels in the Mission, but the Twin Peaks is in a much better area of town and is more centrally located.  (Its a half block away from the Muni.)

    I would recommend this place if you need a weekly place to stay for cheap, or if you need a place while your looking for an apt (like me).

    If this is still too expensive for you (aka student), than I would recommend a youth hostel, you share a room, but its cheaper.

    For the cheap price, I suppose a person must be willing to endure a LOT in a hotel for a week in San Francisco.  This met and exceeded(in astronomical measures) my threshold of tolerance.  

    First, the staff are liars and thieves- my initial check-in was heralded by a wretched and poisonous Middle Eastern woman whom lied to my face about speaking to me on the phone about a reservation; it was in fact a man i spoke with... I believe perhaps the poor soul married to her. She then tried to alter the terms and pricing of my weeklong reservation for 2 and threatened to eject me from the hotel if i allowed my partner to stay in the room because, as she stated, 'you asked for a single room. Just you.'  Fortunately the gentleman came in mid-dilemma and in some non-native language set her straight because she then looked acridly at me and said 'he will finish this for you' as she wandered into the backroom/office/apartment they live in. The gentleman was very pleasant and accommodating. However...

    The initial room was a converted laundry room barely large enough for a single occupant with the furniture. They have excellent wifi, and sattelite tv... Although the old television that they provided was constantly static-y or fritzing out until you smacked the side of it or spent countless minutes jiggling the loose coaxial connection.  The sink was small and hastily plumbed in a corner(with no accompanying mirror) of the room and a 3' white wire overhead laundry shelf provided the only gesture to what could be called a closet in which to house the baggage for 2 PEOPLE ON A WEEKLONG STAY.  So after a day of quiet endurance with the annoyances and subtle mentionings to the front desk, by evening the next night we were complaining openly and freely until the point stuck. We were given a new room the second NIGHT, when they got the bed in there, and left to shuffle all of our belongings down to the new room.  Exhausted and delirious after trucking all our crap from room to room at the end of a long day we thought would be spent in the small room, we passed out in the new room. My partner was then asked to turn over keys to the old room the next morning. That evening he realized he left several valuable electronic peripherals and our hair dryer in a dresser drawer of the old room.
    The next morning he asked the front desk and cleaning staff about it to no avail. There wasn't anyone else in the room besides us but staff, yet mysteriously no one could locate our missing items, not that anyone was overly concerned to find them either. Although on the fourth day of our stay, a maid brought us back our hair dryer and acted nonchalant, as though its hijacking and housing 'somewhere else' for nearly four days was something to be ignored.  Unsurprisingly, the electronics never resurfaced.

    Issue two: BEDBUGS! UGGHH!!!  Not one, but THREE incidents of these disgusting bloodsuckers crawling around us on the bedding or even on our clothes(which were on the bed) and had us leaping out of our skin. I was so freaked for the reminder of my stay that every couple minutes I was anxiously brushing my skin and suddenly twitching out of fear that I had them crawling on me. The management's answer to this: they gave us a bedbug fogger can and casually said we would need to wash all of our laundry at the laundromat down the block.  According to the can of poison we were handed, we would need to vacate our room for 3-4 hours while it effectively gassed everything else we had left in the room(like food). There was no mention of compensation, paying for the laundry we now had to clean because of their hotel or the time we had to vacate during the poisonous fogging; much less any inkling of an apology for the sheer embarassment of such an event.

    The story only gets worse upon checkout, but you catch the drift by now...  Saving money is not worth this nightmare of swindlers and infestation.

    For Wi-Fi I put 'Not sure' since it did exist in the building, I asked on 3 different occasions for a password, none of which worked. They owned the Wi-fi but kept on providing me with incorrect passwords. this was irritating.

    but the location was ideal - close to everything. pretty safe neighborhood and all that.

    I payed $259 or so total per week.

    my room was quite small, but it had cable TV. no fridge or anything for food, but it DID have a sink which is good.

    A friend and I stayed over halloween/world series weekend (SweepSweepSweep!) and Twin Peaks was awesome! I forget the name of the gentleman at the front, but he was The Best. He was so hospitable and helpful. With all the spending over the weekend, Twin Peaks was just what we needed. Like all the other reviews mention, the location is definitely the best part. The Lex (best lezzie bar in SF) is in walking distance. It's like a mile walk, or a cheap cab ride away. I will definitely be staying here again.

    Location is this place's one and only saving grace. Other than that, yes - the essentials are there (ie. running water, a bed, towels, lights), and there is cable TV..

    ..however, the room carries a strange smell, the bed is very uncomfortable, the bathroom is tiny, and there is NO fan or air draft. And this is all at $90/night during the week for two people. Now, SF is a very expensive city, but TP made me wish we had spent the extra $20-30 for a more comfortable experience.

    If you're just in SF for a night and don't mind the discomfort, this place does have an unbeatable location. But if you are looking to wake up feeling somewhat rested and clean, do not choose Twin Peaks..

    I give this place a 3/5 stars because like other Yelpers, this place's only saving grace is that it's cheap, walking distance to the Castro, and the Muni is right in front of the hotel.

    If you're trying to save a couple extra bucks choose a room that has a shared bathroom, there's one per floor. They're clean, and I never had a problem with people rushing to use them. For two people this place runs cheap if the cost is split.

    Downside is that there is no air conditioning so if you're here in the summer or when SF is having hot weather, prepare to be uncomfortable, or avoid a street room (where the sun hits most).

    This is an alternative for a more expensive hotel, if you want to save bucks. However, an even better alternative might be a hostel (if you REALLY want to cheap out and rather use your money on activities, food, transportation, etc).

    I would never, ever recommend this place. In fact, I'm still a bit haunted about my stay here. Creepy men getting into arguments in the hallway at 5 am, rooms that are so small you can barely fit two people and your stuff, and just an awful awful experience altogether. The only thing I liked about this hotel is the location and I loved that there was a Walgreens right across the street. Location really is amazing. Parking wasn't bad, I could usually find something within a two block radius, but my god does this place suck. The sheets on the bed are so old, you can tell they're from the 80s. We found a hair in the towel, the bed was so disgusting and smelled of urine... I understand the argument that you're only there to sleep, but if your sleep is uncomfortable and anxiety ridden, how can you get any rest and be refreshed enough to tackle the next day in San Francisco? My sister and I slept on top of the bedspread, we didn't even want to see what was underneath. And the smell of pee was enough of a sneak peak at what else was lurking in that bed. The staff also entered into my room even though I had the privacy sign hanging from the door nob. I've been under the impression that meant Do Not Enter Please, but I guess not.
    I read an earlier review calling this place a gem, I have to beg to differ. I would rather stay in Daly City for the same price at a hotel not "european style" and drive into the city then stay here. Or just dish out an extra $20 a night for something more comfortable.
    I'm so disappointed. I was so looking forward to my stay here after reading some of the reviews. When I called to ask about the place the person I spoke to left me under the impression that it was a two floor hotel with 8 rooms on each floor. But alas, this hotel has a whopping 5 floors with 60+ rooms.  I paid $200 for two nights to stay in a dump. I feel like a fool.
    Please, if this is your first time visiting the city, don't stay here. Don't make your experience in SF one where you're nervous and having anxiety about going back to your hotel. Do yourself a favor and stay somewhere else.

    Still a good deal in San Francisco, not luxury  but good price and location and clean. found this on line someone  made a quick video of their floor and room.  It's pretty accurate.   youtube.com/watch?v=6Y0W…

    ok so this is one of the best kept secrets for staying in San Francisco. it is clean, quiet and close to some great areas, Castro, Mission, Dolores Park. it is also very affordable with daily weekly and monthly rates. Peter the owner is super nice and friendly. he seems to be there 24/7...hmm I wonder if he ever sleeps? I have been coming here for over 4 years. i have stayed for a few months, a few weeks and a few days here and there. I would call this place a second home and will continue to talk about it with everyone I know and will keep coming here as long as I can... thank you peter!

    defff would have been better off never going there in my life. the owners are thieves  and continue swiping your card after you go home. good location isn't worth all the drama the unprofessional, uncooperative & unfriendly staff caused. do not recommend  at all.

    The Twin Peaks Hotel is the most accommodating for those on a budget. The rates are so cheap and the location is amazing as it puts you right in the Castro district and right on the border of the Mission. Check in took less than 5 minutes and in 15 minutes we had unloaded our stuff and were in a restaurant enjoying some excellent cuisine minutes from the hotel. Sharing showers (showtime!) and bathrooms with those on our hall was never an issue and the small room slept 3 comfortably with one of us on the floor. You really can't beat the location and price. I want to eat this hotel.

    I had to find a hotel last minute on a friday and this was all that was available....at $80/night it was worth it but its sketchy. There are literally no ammenities, including outlets in the room....the only available outlet was 8 feet above the floor. I used an extension cord I found in the room and climbed on bed to reach outlet to plug in. It's located on busy street so there is noise. No ice but at walgreens they sell small bags I'm guessing just to accomodate guests of twin peaks....ha. there was a bag of weed at the top of the stairs when I returned. The one bath towel is sized for a small child....But..hey, it's 80 bucks in san fran...and has a bed :)

    Twin Peaks hotel was a decent place to stay. Not wanting to spend our whole vacation budget on a hotel, we chose TP because the nightly rate was under $100. The room was pretty clean and had plenty of space. It could definitely use some upgraded carpet and bedding. If you are worried about the shared bathrooms, I would say - don't be! They were very clean and we did not have to wait in line like I had feared. It seemed like the cleaning staff was constantly cleaning them so it was no problem. The hotel was very close to the bus and the underground, Walgreens, and plenty of restaurants. It's quite noisy but it's to be expected in a city.

    Amazing!!!  The owners ( Peter ) go out of their way to make you feel at home. I don't think Peter ever sleeps. He is always there working hard always smiling.New flat screen Tv's dish cable. The rooms are spotless.. Margarita always says gives a great hello.. She works super hard to keep the rooms spotless.. The bathroom is shared.. However there are two on every floor and are shining. I could take lessons on keeping a shower so near. Thanks for being such a great place to dream in S.F. Jason room # 43

    This place is a gem. We'll run, clean and convenient. The rooms are clean and mine was quiet. I stayed for and extended period, so I can attest to the daily cleaning of bathrooms and common areas, diligent housekeeping and friendly service. The weekly rate is great and the management is usually on-site. Super location, too. Worth a visit!

    I though I wrote a review before but can't seem to find it.  I have stayed in the twin peaks many times over the last 8 years.  I think the management has changed a few times.  Every time I return I find the place to be cleaner and the front desk more helpful and very friendly.  This is a very standard low budget european style hotel (shared bathrooms) which they keep spotless, they are in there cleaning 2-3 times a day..I have never had to wait for a shower, ever. It has direct out the door service to the vintage F troll (the wharf - the castro) the church street muni (you can get anywhere from here) walk to the mission in 10 minutes, the castro in 5, lower haight 10 minutes, upper haight 20 minutes.  I don't expect the 4 seasons when I stay here. I expect a place to sleep and shower, so I can enjoy the city.

    First of all awesome service! the guy who worked the front desk was very helpful, even though we exhausted him with directions and parking questions he was breaking a sweat! Lol...

    My likes about this hotel is that it has that old Frisco feel to it.  If your just in for plain simple lodging this place is all you need. We never stayed at a hotel with a shared bath but it wasn't too bad, it was clean you get to shower and use the toilet. It was a good feeling that early cold morning, as I looked through that bath window while I was pissin' you feel the breeze and a view of cultured San Francisco, man that was beautiful.

    Travelers who need extreme privacy and not want people to hear your sex noises, I do not recommend this place due to the fact that their rooms are tiny dorm types. I was deep asleep and didn't hear anything but wife tells me she can hear conversations in the hallway in the middle of the night, so yes...do you get my drift?

    My least favorite about this hotel is that parking is a challenge because you would have to find curb side parking around the street at the backside about a block from here. We were lucky to find a spot there to park over night.

    When we came from the Embarcadero New Years Celebration we took the MUNI public transportation and the MUNI dropped us off not too far away to walk back to the our hotel, but hey taking the MUNI was cool.

    Good lodging here to say the least and nice rates. You got to appreciate the experience!

    Helped a friend who was visiting from outside the country get a room here. Naraami was amazing!!! He was patient and kind as we asked many questions. He went out of his way to help us find transportation, and called me back promptly at every step of the process. He really went above and beyond. I would go back in a heartbeat just due to the customer service. The room was also adorable, and the location is ideal with public transport very close by.

    OMG I did not care for this hotel at all. It has some good points but overall I'm disappointed with my friend for booking a room in this wretched dump.  Thank goodness it was only for 2 nights.  The bed was thoroughly uncomfortable. It squeaks the minute you plant your behind on it.  The location is good because it's in the Castro district so easy access to loads of good restaurants, lounge, bars but this hotel just suck big time.  
    The wifi, oh god, was miserable; losing signal and takes forever to look anything up.   And this hotel had no elevators.  How do people with disabilities get in and out? The ADA be damned I suppose.  I don't mind the walk because I don't do enough cardio but that's beside the point, isn't it?!
    I did like the water pressure in the shower but that's about it. Just that.  Just 1 positive.

    **I joined yelp just to review this place**
    Spent a month living here and really enjoyed my time. Not only is the location prime but it is relatively affordable! The rooms are clean and kept clean twice a week. Never once had a problem with the shared bathrooms and they were always spotless.

    Everyone that works here is wonderful and very helpful. The people staying in the hotel were quiet, nice and kept to themselves (which can be a problem with some of the other affordable hotels in San Francisco.)

    I would recommend this place to anyone needing a spot to stay while looking for an apartment or just visiting!
