Yes, there are homeless in SOMA (South of Market Street) as well as other parts of SF. The homeless are pretty harmless. They usually will not engage in conversation with you while you walk by. It is hard to see the homeless sometimes. It has gotten much better in the last 15 years I have lived in my home that you will be staying in. Seeing homeless people in reality is a part of living or staying in SOMA and experiencing San Francisco. I do not give them money personally but I do say hello and acknowledge them with goodwill in my heart. This seems to be well received. I have had my nieces and nephews stay with me and walk to Union Square. There have been hundreds of guests with babies and children over the years without any problems. Welcome to SOMA San Francisco. It could be helpful to know that lofts on this block go for 750,000 to over a million so you are in good company with well educated professionals. I welcome you into my home and have done my best to paint the scene so you can make an educated decision about your stay.

Arguably the most exciting neighborhood in SF, with new restaurants and bars popping up weekly. This is the loft apartment you want to stay in when you come to San Francisco!

Karina's loft was a great experience. My husband and I stayed there for a month after relocating to SF while we searched for our own apartment in the city, she made us feel very welcome in her home, we appreciated the welcome basket after a long drive up from Los Angeles! There were a few internet issues while we were there but the communication with Karina was great and she helped walked us through them. It is a loft so it gets bright in the mornings, but a sleep mask can easily fix that. Also, the immediate area is a little sketchy, but within a few blocks north/east you're in a very hip/trendy part of SF. Would definitely recommend staying here!!
