Hotel Travelers is/was an SRO (Single Room Occupany) hotel at 392 - 11th St.

It's been in the news a lot recently, but not in a good way. 1 Some of the tenants have sued new owner Danny Haber for harassment under Oakland's tenant protection laws, charging that he and his company have been shutting off services, disabled the elevators, letting garbage pile up, etc. in an effort to drive them out. 2 Haber's company counters that they're "simply bringing things up to code." 3
