Lily was a fine host. We never met her, but she provided all the information we needed promptly, and I am sure if we needed her, she would have been helpful. The space was as described (a little darker than in pictures, but not at all a problem.) The neighborhood was exactly as busy and San Francisco-y as we expected.
Lovely stay overall.
Incredible location. Extremely clean and orderly apartment. Very clear communication from the host. No problems at all. Stayed in this apartment with two other co-workers as an alternative to a hotel. The large common spaces were perfect for this type of thing. An added perk: there is a ZipCar garage a stone's throw away. So, if you're renting ZipCars during your stay, this apartment couldn't be in a better place. Would absolutely return!
We did not get to meet the host, but her instructions on accessing the unit were clear and perfect. The listing description was accurate. The location of the unit was good in the sense that it was accessible to many places by foot. Also, Uber cars arrived quickly (3 minutes or less) after calling them. Uber drivers complained that there was no way to turn around as the alley is a dead end and there truly is no easy way to turn a car around. The neighborhood itself is a mix of great restaurants and shops as well as some not-great-ones. There is also a very diverse mix in terms of the people in the street.
This is a lovely quirky house - and suited us (3 couples) perfectly. The beds were all comfy. The kitchen is great to hang out in - there is a large breakfast bar area. The area itself is slightly daunting - lots of homeless people & beggars but it has great restaurants and lots of bars and is VERY near the tube so very easy to get out to nicer areas!
We didn't meet Lily in person, just spoke to her on the phone when we first arrived to confirm where the key was - and we had no issues or problems so didn't need to contact her again. We would definitely stay in this house again, and recommend it to others.
Lily was reactive and communicative
The photos make the flat look slightly more sparkling that is really is but it is still really good value for money and well situated for access to the local railway system and to trendy Valencia/Mission area
The beds are particularly comfortable.
Overall excellent for the purpose
Lilly was a fantastic host, she met us at the house and walked us through everything. The location was spot on for all of your needs in San Francisco. 5 mins from the BART station, in the middle of the mission area, lots of food, and great bars within walking distance. The 3 rooms were very nice in size, plenty of room for our stuff. The kitchen area was nice too, we like to cook and there was plenty of space to do that.
This was my first Airbnb and Lily's place was definitely the right choice. It was very easy to find and in a quiet location. Lily met us at the door to give us the tour and then left us to our own devices. The place is a little old but clean, well-maintained, and perfect for our needs. There were plenty of excellent restaurants within walking distance and transportation was easy to find when we wanted to venture out further. I'll be checking to see if this place is available the next time a few of us want to go to San Francisco again.
