I rent out a few rooms in an old house in the Alamo Square historic district. I also have a small software business I run from home and work part-time as a sailplane flight instructor.

It was really great time at Bock house! Julie and Drew are very hospitable and friendly hosts, and all neighbors were good people, so we chat and drink at the kitchen many times.
Also location is very good, only block from Alamo Square (beautiful park with free WiFi) and not far from downtown and Golden Gate Park.
My room is quite small and if you like space, you should choose bigger room in this house.
Drew and Julie are both so great! They are very kind, friendly and helpful. The neighborhood is safe and near some cool stuff. The bus stop is just a few steps from the front door.
Julie often would offer me food she'd cooked and invite me out with the roommates. There is a great sense of community that is built here.
The 6 rooms to one shower was surprisingly not a problem, since everyone had different schedules.
The only thing I would note is that there were a lot of dogs that roamed the hallway, so if you don't like dogs, this might not be the place for you. Otherwise, it's a great, safe space with easy access for your short term stay in SF.
The Bock house is conveniently located right in the middle of the city and also near several shops and restaurants. I felt very welcomed and enjoyed my stay.
Great place to stay! I stayed there for three months.
When I arrived Julie was there, welcoming me and showing me around. She also got me food, which was great after 20 hours of traveling. Both Julie and Drew are attentive and helpful. The dogs are really calm and sweet.
It's a very good place to stay. The other guests have all been very friendly. There's never a queue for the shower, and no disturbance at all. The bus for financial market / downtown is right outside the door. The neighborhood is safe. There's lots of great places to eat & drink close by.
All in all, I can 100% recommend this place, and being guest of Drew and Julie.
I couldn't have picked a better place than the Bock House to call home when I moved to San Francisco. It's located right in the middle of the city next to a huge off-leash dog park and not far from Haight Street and Golden Gate Park.
Drew and Julie are great hosts, chill as hell, and very accommodating. Julie even helped me find my first apartment.
I felt like I was part of a family while I was there. We had barbecues, outings, weird conversations, and plenty of good times together. I'm kind of sad that I had to leave, but I know I'll be back to visit.
I came to make friends (and I did), but If you're a private person, it's great too. Everyone is respectful of each other and you can come and go as you please.
Me and my girlfriend stay with Julie and Drew for a month and had a great time. Julie was an exceptionally welcoming host. She invited us to various events, made dinner and never hesitated to assist us with practical tasks. Drew was also very helpful and friendly.
When we stayed in the house there were four other air bnb'ers. Your experience of the house will probably depend a lot on who happens to be there at the moment.
This room will barely fit couple. Be aware that your are facing the street so when morning traffic starts it will get a little noisy. Other rooms are more quiet.
The area is great. Divisadero is a perfectly gentrified street with several charming cafés, bars and restaurants within walking distance from the house. Plus Alamo park of course.
All in all we are very happy we got to stay in the Bock house and warmly recommend you to do the same.
The location of this place is perfect. The #5 stops right in front of the house and will take you all the way down market street in no time. The Golden Gate park is a few blocks away and is perfect to get a few miles of running in the morning. Cyclists take Steiner and Greenwich to the Precidio and then cross the GG, the riding starts on the other side. Divisadero has all the coffee shops you could ask for, although the nearest grocery store is a bit of a walk. The room itself has a good bed. The kitchen has everything you need as well. On the other hand, there is only one shower for quite a few people. It hasn't been a problem for me, but just something to note. The view from this specific room is nonexistent. I will admit that three months without any view whatsoever is a bit depressing. So I would suggest you invest in the more expensive rooms of this house if you are planning on staying there for a while. Andrew was gone flying awesome acrobatics glider planes pretty often, but every interaction we've had has been great. He definitely cares about people having a good stay. Julie is also very caring and knows the city well. Really if you need something just ask them! This can obviously change with who stays in the house, but I also have great memories of walking down the hallway after a day at work, and finding an improvised meet up of roommates around one or two people cooking their diner, and just sitting down and joining a conversation about the most random stuff, from "how to take dating seriously" to "how not to get killed riding a bike in SF".
Drew was very accommodating and made my roommate and I feel very welcome. I can't think of one thing I would change about my stay here. Everyone that I met while living here was super nice. We even needed to extend our stay a little bit and that was no trouble at all!
I love staying at the bock house. I felt welcomed, and at home from day one. I was having fun with my housemates feels like I'm in college again(in a good way). There is no drama, people look out for each other, and just a great general sense of community, with lively conversations. The room itself is quiet, and perfect temperature for sleeping. I highly recommend staying here, and will default to staying here in the future.
Great place! great people, Drew is the man
Andrew was a great guest. Hope to see you again if you find yourself in Tampa.
