José and Brian were awesome hosts. They have been very friendly and easy to reach when I had questions. The place was perfect. You have lots of restaurants or bars nearby. They were also very kind to leave some information about where to eat/have breakfast in the studio. I would definitely return.

I used to live in sf before moving out and on my latest visit wanted to stay in my old neighborhood - the Castro. Jose and Brian's place is the perfect spot to explore the city from. It's got a near perfect location, checkin was a breeze and the apartment is super cute and perfect for 1-2 people. I would highly recommend it and would stay here again. Thanks guys for being amazing hosts.

I have been coming to José's studio for years whenever I am in S.F. and every time it has been delightful. Everything you could need from toiletries you might have forgotten at home, to a comfortable bed, accessibility to the best nightlife and restaurants in the city around the corner, and considerate hosts make this studio the only place you should stay at. Thanks José for the wonderful stay!
