As with most of the accomidations in SF, location, location, location. Hayes Valley Inn is smack dab in moderately trendy Hayes Valley, with easy walks to fun boutiques, restaurants and bars. Near enough as well if you plan on seeing a show near the Opera House, ballet or the like. Also close enough to the Asian Art Museum, City Hall, etc. Nice amenities and service at this quaint, not expensive Inn.
Unique Quality: Smaller inn, but nice staff
Directions: Hayes Valley, two blocks west of Van Ness Ave.
Although a little caught off guard at the small rooms and shared bathrooms, I soon was at total ease because everything in this place is Spotless. You have all the comforts of a hotel: TV, new towels, little soaps, etc. Plus the location is really awesome. All public transport passes very close, or you can walk from there. Hayes Valley has some great shopping. The best part about this place is the breakfast. What an amazing breakfast. Deli meats, fresh fruit, fresh sqeezed OJ, pastries. 5 star! You won't find anything like it for FREE anywhere else. This place is so cheap, safe, clean, and the breakfast tops it off to make it a wonderful experience. At $65, it was the cheapest hotel we stayed on our trip through California, and was so far the best there is no comparison. I would absolutely recommend this place.
ALSO - just down the street West, is the greatest drag bar called Murriettas I think. A fabulous, non-touristy show is on every second saturday of the month. Faux Girls was such a treat.
Unique Quality: Your room is decorated in a really cute and charming way. The breakfast room is also so relaxing and beautiful. It has amazing bay windows that look out over the street. It is also a great place and opportunity to chat with other travellers and swap tips if you so prefer.
Directions: Hayes Valley District. The hotel is on the corner of Hayes and Gough. Close to the Civic Centre. From the Airport, you can take BART right to Civic Centre stop and then you are about 4 blocks max to the hotel.
It was wonderful. even I had a place in the city, I still went there to stay for the weekends TWICE. I got their special deals and the nighbourhood is nice. Their website: www.hayesvalleyinn.com. check it out. Their B&B is very basic. nothing fancy. But enough for me: generally you have bagels, gronolas, different pastries, cooffee/tea/juice, yogurt, fruit, and a cold plate to choose from. Decent enough for the price. Showers/toilets are very clean. Staff is friendly and there's no curfew. Easy get to differnt small shops around and to the opera house, city library, and buses and Bart(subways). This picture shows where I've sat for tea in the morning quietly looking out the windows.
Directions: Hayes Valley

Try the San Remo Hotel located 2237 Mason at Chestnut (415) 776-8688/(800)352-7366, or www.sanremohotel.com. Single rooms w/sink and shared bath start at$75/night. However, it is not located at Civic center, but isn't so far away as to not be considered. This is a decent Hotel, in a decent area.
You can also consider The Mosser Hotel (www.themosser.com), located 54 4th Steet near Moscone Center whic meets you criteria, however, the neighborhood isn't that great. Others to consider include the Golden Gate Hotel starting at $95/night wi/shared bath). Red Vitorian B&B (ww.redvic.com); Hayes Valley Inn (www.haysvalleyinn.com), which is a nice place 4 blcks from Civic Center.

So...there you go...plenty to choose from.
