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.

Street Cars/Rail Lines(M, J, F, and K lines) are available at the Balboa Bart Station as well.

  • Room was really big and clean and wifi was fast. This is a good place to stay if you're looking for a place to sleep during your stay in SF. There is a busstop just around the corner where you can take a bus directly to downtown. Brandon was a helpful host and answered quickly to all our messages.

  • Nice place like a hotel. Clean, professional and easy to access Highway.

  • The room is closely located to San Francisco International Airport (20 min drive) and Mission Street, where you can take the bus downtown. We did not meet Brandon in person, but everything was arranged perfectly: the room was big, quite clean and met our expectations. Quiet neighborhood at night and great starting point for visiting SF! Thanks Brandon!

  • Even though I haven't met Brandon personally, he had arranged everything perfectly. I would always recommend to stay at his place

  • Brandon's place is really quite nice! There are only two things I need when traveling: comfortable bed and fast internet. This place has both. It's clean. My room was quite large, had a couch and desk too. There are two shared bathrooms, but I didn't have any problems with it.

    The experience was quite hotel-like in the sense that there was no real interaction with other people or the host (I haven't even met Brandon during the 3 days I was at his place). He simply left the keys to the house and room in a lockbox and gave me the code to retrieve them.

    The neighborhood is not terribly great. I wouldn't say I felt unsafe there, but it felt weird because there were no people on the sidewalks. Just 2 blocks away is the Mission St. where there are many restaurants, fast foods, convenience stores, etc.

    Overall, pretty great bang for the buck.

    May 2014
  • Brandon's house was spacious and clean. Check in was very easy and while we didn't meet Brandon he was very helpful and in touch if we needed it. Would be happy to stay here again.

  • It was my first airbnb experience and our stay could not have been better. The room was bigger than I expected and the place is easy to find. It's a little far from downtown but close to transportation. The neighborhood is quiet and parking is pretty easy. I would stay here again when I visit SF.

  • Brandon's place was very clean like a hotel! There were microwave and refrigerator with plastic cups, plates, and etc. Sharing bathroom was almost never a problem. The house is little far from downtown, but 14 bus comes very often.
    The area seems not safe neither clean, but the apartment itself was very comforting! Brandon was very quick to communicate :) thank you
