Also, there are coin operated washing machine and dryer for your use.
The house is a boarding house, shabby-chic and conveniently located near the Mission, Excelsior, and Glen Park districts—all within walking distance. It is very close to transportation, freeways and major thoroughfares. Savor the ethnic vibrancy of this off the beaten path of San Francisco.
Walk 1.5 blocks to buy Asian fruits and vegetables from the corner Asian Market. Across the freeway, walk to Farmer’s Market on weekends. Take 14 Mission bus towards Daly City where you will find Filipino, Chinese, Latin, German restaurants and a hamburger joint in the same neighborhood.
Venture further away from the house and walk 2 blocks to take 14 Mission, a bus line that travels from one end of the City that borders Daly City to Embarcadero which is the heart of downtown San Francisco.

Or, walk four blocks to Glen Park Bart station and take the Bart lines that travel to SF International airport and within San Francisco as well as various Bay Area cities, locations and destinations.

My stay at Maria’s place was very pleasant; the place is clean, quiet and comfortable. Location is perfect. Great value for your money, I would definitely stay again at Maria’s place.
I stayed in the home for one month and will try to be as diplomatic and accurate as possible in my review.
~The amenities are well provided for, in that there is an in-house washer and dryer (although at a hefty $7 per load combined) and there is ample kitchen storage.
~I asked for a lamp and the owner kindly supplied it for the desk. And they also promptly fixed the ceiling light when it burned out.
~The house and kitchen constantly reeked of something vile and unseen.
~Between 7-10 people share one bathroom (shower and toilet) and thus was often dirty and hard to get into in the morning, which is expected.
~Any noise you or your neighbor make is heard everywhere.
~If you don't have a car, this location is quite the trek to downtown (about a hour on bus or bart).
~Has a great little study desk, a chest and dresser for clothes and shoes. Tons of storage. And even better, you get your own mini fridge.
~The room is smaller than it appears in the photo and has one mattress and one thin cot.
~The sheets on both beds were extremely stained/well used, and the mattress cover was crusty.
~Everything in the room, from the floor to the counters was filthy. Also, much of the house hasn’t been properly mopped/bleached in months (or so it appears).
*Please note this is not a review of the landlords who were great and courteous, but an honest review of the house.
I briefly met Danielle twice when I visited the property. She was very polite when I asked her about her experience. She mentioned about the lamp and light in her room which my brother and I addressed and corrected immediately. Our quick actions displayed our commitment to ensure our guest's comfort and enjoyment. Thereafter, she did not mention other concerns.
Thus, her HISTRIONICS come as a complete surprise.
If I had been in her place and experienced those negative things as she claimed, I would have ran out of the house within the 24 hour period which airbnb allows for a guest to make up their mind to stay or not to stay. However, she stayed close to a month and said nothing. I do not understand why she did not use the bathroom downstairs if the upstairs bathroom was occupied nor brought her boyfriend, which was not prearranged, to the house during the last two weeks of her stay if she thought there were too many people. Looking back at the number of guests assigned to the upstairs bathroom, the average number was 5 during her stay with use of the downstairs bathroom if needed.
As far as cleanliness, I have a person who cleans 3x a week the communal areas. Every guest is responsible for the upkeep of their own space and must contribute to the collective maintenance and upkeep of the property. I have plenty of cleaning materials and solutions for anyone to use. A guest can also open the window for fresh air.
Prior to guest arrival, the room gets cleaned thoroughly and beddings are replaced with freshly washed linens and comforter.
As far as condition of linens, they are inspected after each use. Those that are spotted with body fluids are disposed. Therefore, I do not understand her complaints. Perhaps she soiled them herself!
As far as the type of beds, they are placed in the room to accommodate the space. If she wanted a different bed she should have booked a different room or better yet, she should not have come at all.
I want a guest who is positive and focus on the the good things about staying in our place such as the value of having a reasonably priced clean house and private bedroom or shared space, getting the opportunity to interact with an international household, enjoying the convenience of a well placed located house, etc.
If you are such as guest, I welcome you. If not, please move on to somewhere else to save each other heartache and grief.
This spot was great, nice spacious room with two twin beds that were both comfy and well prepared. Huge wardrobe closet perfect for my clothes, personal mini fridge where I stored some basic groceries.
Best of all it provided short commutes to both the South Bay/Silicon Valley as well as Downtown SF because of its great access to the 280 freeway. Maria was a great host, she called the day before arrival and even made special arrangements for my late flight in that night. This is definitely high on my list for when I return to the Bay Area soon.
I lived in this room for three months and had an interesting and exciting time in San Francisco. Maria is a busy but friendly and very helpful host. If you need something or if you have a problem – just ask. She will try everything to help you.
House and room correspond with the description perfectly. Read this and some of the comments and you know what to expect.
I liked the fact that there are other interesting people from all over the world living in the house all the time. If you want company, you have someone to talk to. But it's also possible to be on your own if you want to.
If you are a light sleeper, you may have a problem, because the house is not very soundproof and you hear people coming and going or walking down the hall.
And if you are a kind of "sun worshipper" you might be disappointed, because the only window in the room faces a small light shaft.
But the pros about the house and this room outweigh these drawbacks easily:
- There's a complete and big kitchen in the house.
- You have a small but sufficient fridge in your room for your own stuff.
- Professional grade washing machine and dryer in the basement.
- The 14 and 49 busses are a five minute walk away. Take one of them and 15 minutes later you'll be in Mission, the "Hipster" part of San Francisco with a lot of bars, restaurants and (mostly Mexican) eateries.
- The 14X is even closer and brings you directly to the city center during morning rush-hour and back in the evening.
- The "Glen Park" BART Station is a 10 to 15 minute walk away. A 10 minute ride later and you'll be in the heart of San Francisco. Take a southbound BART train to reach SFO Airport or transfer at Millbrae to a Caltrain to Silicon Valley/San Jose.
- You'll find a large supermarket with a lot of asian groceries and other stuff a five minute walk away. I can recommend furthermore "Canyon Market" near Glen Park BART Station. It's a pricy, but very nice supermarket with high quality organic food.
The neighborhood is quiet and safe. It's not a fancy part of SF, just a common residential area.
All things considered: You get a lot of value for a comparatively cheap price.
My sister and I stayed here for several months for work- and study-related reasons and we had a pretty good stay.
- The laundry was a bit more expensive than I was used to, especially for two people's worth of laundry load.
- For two people who work/study at home most of the time, the only downside of the room furnishing is probably the small desk that can only used by one person at a time. You can easily resolve this by getting a nice laptop/bed table for the other person to use on the bed though.
- Despite being so busy with taking care of so many people, Maria is very friendly and always responded very quickly (usually within a day) whenever there was a problem.
- Maria hosts a monthly dinner where everyone could come together and get to know each other. My favorite part is when each of us brought a favorite poetry/song to share with each other. We usually end laughing or debating or reflecting deeply at the end of each poem/song.
- This is a great room relative to other rooms in the house if you care about convenience and location. The bathroom is right across your room entrance, the kitchen is a little down the hall to your right, the house entrance is a little down the hall to your left and the mails shelf is right next to you (very convenient for someone who usually checks the mail like me).
- The supermarket is about 2 long blocks away from this house, which is close enough to walk to and fro getting our groceries while also getting a bit of walking exercise.
Overall, it was a good stay and we would recommend it for anyone looking for a short-term place to stay for a couple months.
Staying here was a mixed bag:
My room was cheap, nice and private, a perfect place to work (I work remotely on my computer) and the bed was huge and comfortable. Maria also provided me with a space heater that warmed my room up when it got chilly.
The kitchen is functional, a good place to hang out and airy.
There's a lot of interesting people in the house that are about my age (25) who are doing interesting things (one works at (website hidden) for example). We sat around and drank wine a bit and smoked a few joints together. It was good times.
Maria is condescending about other peoples' lifestyle choices (i.e. smoking pot) and assumes a reprimanding tone with other adults. I don't accept that kind of behavior and I made it clear in a civil manner.
To be fair however, I DID smoke pot (I have a medical cannabis card) in her backyard, which she asked me not to do, but I did anyway unthinkingly. I apologized sincerely for reneging on my word and took it well outside of the house thereafter. In this instance, I embarrassed myself and I owned up to it and made sure it was the last time it happened. And it was.
Maria promised me and others in the house that she would give us priority to extend our stays if there were other people inquiring about our rooms. After she made a big, florid, feel-good presentation in front of everyone about how her primary motivation isn't monetary but to cultivate relationships and help people, she went on to book my room for a month solid without giving me the option to extend as she'd promised, leaving me 5 days to scramble for a place to live. I learned later that she'd done the same thing to several tenants, some of whom, like myself, had given her several months worth of steady businesses.
After Maria and I butted heads a little bit, I got the distinct impression that she was trying to oust me from the house. I say this because after she booked my room, I attempted to book one of the shared beds instead because I'm too busy with work to look for a place, and she didn't accept my reservation.
I called her up and asked her point blank if she wants me gone and if so I'll just get out. She then launched into a half-hearted equivocation about how she admires my healthy eating, exercise and career aspirations. In other words, she wouldn't answer my question, thereby answering my question. So I cancelled the shared room request and left the house.
I'm grateful to have had a place to stay when I got to SF but this isn't (website hidden); I PAID for my room and the events that precipitated my leaving have left a bad taste in my mouth.
My daughters' stay was very good. The room was good enough for the intended stay. The place was peaceful and quite the whole time of stay and the neighborhood as well. I would definitely go back if needed to stay for a few days.
Maria was a great! She was really friendly and do not hesitate to help us in our request.
My room was just as described and I had a good stay. There were a few occasions (Including 2 hours while waiting on the steps to get into the house upon arrival) that maria was difficult to reach. However, she was a friendly hostess and this is a decent place for a short term stay in San Francisco.
The other guests rotated quite a bit and the house was being shared with many other people, but if you like that sort of thing this is the place for you!
It was nice to stay at mission terrace. The place was easy to go everywhere, and there are some shops near.
For me was specially nice, because i could go to my course walking.
People there were really really nice... specially Maria. I would stay there again if i return to san francisco!!!
