The Space

It is located in San Francisco in-between the Outer Mission and Crocker Amazon districts near Mission Street. Though the street and the area is very quiet .
If you are coming by public transit from SFO, you can take bart and get off at the Balboa Park Bart Station. My apartment is less than 1 mile away from the Balboa Bart station, and you can do a combination of short walks and short bus trips, or just take the 88 BART SHUTTLE bus and get (email hidden) & Guttenberg St. There is a No.-14 bus stop that is one block away on Mission St, which can get you straight to downtown through Mission St. I would recommend taking Bus-14X (express) - it is much faster. More public transportation (email hidden) & Geneva St.

From SFO to here is about 17 minutes driving. If you want to go downtown, freeway 280 is nearby for driving. Or you can take #14 bus will get you to downtown, and I would recommend taking the #14X express - it is much faster. Or you can take BART at Balboa Bart Station which takes around 10 minutes to downtown - you can walk or combine with short bus trips, or take 88 BART SHUTTLE to the Balboa Bart (email hidden) & Guttenberg St.

Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • From my experience, this is basically an online managed hostel. Even room doors are numbered :). The house & room were clean, the bathrooms nice and spacey. Fridge & microwave are convenient, but not having the possibility of cooking is a miss. Also, mind you that it is not possible to be in downtown in less than 45 min - via public transportation.

  • The room is huge! The whole house was really clean and Brandon made sure we had everything we needed. I most definitely will try to book here again next time I have to be in San Francisco. This is the best airbnb accommodation I've ever had.

  • My friend and I had a good time staying at Brandon's apartment. Brandon was very friendly and helpful. He replied messages very quickly. The room was clean and comfortable. The instructions of check-in and check-out was very clear. Although the apartment isn't in central area, you can take a bus to downtown easily. I recommend this place.

  • The description in the profile is accurate. The room was clean comfortable as were the bathrooms. There is a fridge and a coffee machine, so pretty much everything one might need. It is not really central in the city, but public transportation helps to get to downtown SF quickly. We had a good time and recommend the place!

  • Das Quartier/Haus von Brandon war mit Abstand das Beste, was ich auch meiner gesamten 3-wöchigen USA-Reise erlebt habe!!! Ich würde sofort wieder buchen.
    Sogar ein nigelnagelneuer Grill war vorhanden. Ganz viel Platz, ein absolut fairer Preis, sehr freundliche Behandlung und an der Ausstattung hat nichts, aber auch gar nichts gefehlt. Also, Brandon, großer Applaus für Dich und herzlichen Dank für die wunderschöne Zeit in Deinem Haus.

    Alles Liebe und Gute für Dich, Brandon,
    mach weiter so, dann wirst Du Deine Gäste weiterhin glücklich machen und beste Empfehlungen bekommen.

  • The place is exactly as shown in photos. The beds are clean, the closet is huge with a full length mirror, which is helpful. The bedrooms are shared by kept clean. No real kitchen as described, but next to the microwave there are paper plates and plastic forks etc for us who had leftover from dining out, it's very considerate. Brandon is very helpful and responsive, I asked him a lot of questions, and he replied with patience and detailed guidance.
    The parking was actually not that bad, and Brandon allowed us to park in front of his garage when we didn't find a spot nearby, very nice. But BE AWARE of street cleaning! Although Brandon warned us, we still forgot and got a ticket. The location is not in the heart of the city, but perfect for someone who has a car or plan to take buses around. It's convenient, restaurants, Walgreens, groceries all very close.

  • We stayed at Brandon's room for two nights and it was a nice place to stay. We didn't get to meet him in person, but he send me all the detailed information beforehand so that it was no problem to get the keys and everything.

  • Great place if you come to SF for a business stay or exploring the city as a startup. Very close to SFO and 30 minutes door-to-door by BART to financial district (probably not too convenient for Caltrain commute, if you ever plan one).

    Runner's paradise nearby — if you go up the hill, you'll find one of the best parks for running: natural trails, very quiet, few people around, and spectacular panoramic views on the city. Even if the fog comes into town, worth running up there to find yourself above the clouds.

    The room is clean, bright, and looks as in the photos. Other guests were respectable (our paths rarely crossed) and in general it felt very comfortable. I've stayed at different shared apartments, and that's the first time it felt almost as private.

    Eating in the neighborhood is simple and just right: taquerias, small coffee shop.
    Not fancy, rather owner operated and thus with own character.

    Brandon and Andy (his roommate) are great hosts, keep everything clean, in place and on time. Would recommend to my friends.

  • Comfy and clean room in a nice neighborhood .
    Ideal if you are visiting the Bay with a friend or relative.

    April 2014
  • Great Weekend because of a Fantastic airbnb property.... The 1 block walk to the #14 bus really was appreciated considering all the rain I had on my stay... Peaceful property with an EXCEPTIONAL host - Thank You again Brandon....
