We stayed here for a week in Nov 2012 and the place is rather tight for 4 people. There 2 adults (me and my husband), my teenager son who is already as big as his dad and my 8 yr old daughter. There was only 1 futon bed and a pull out mattress, which was to be put on the floor. The studio space was rather small so we had a bit of a trouble to fit in all 4, our luggages and our things. There was nothing much on (website hidden) is clean, toilet is clean and new, the kitchenette is good size and had all that we needed. The washer and dryer is located at the basement of the apartment. This studio unit is at ground floor so it is very noisy at night and mornings, especially mornings when the restaurant workers taking out the trash right outside your windows at very early hours.
Location wise is very near to Union Sq and tram stops, easy excess to many shops and restaurants, but since it's downtown, there are many homeless people along the street and in that area which makes it rather scary to walk around alone... And the streets have urine smells too!
Communicating with Josh was ok before we checked in but we had trouble with the heater not working after 2 nights there, we tried to call and text him but we didn't get immediate response from Josh, maybe he was out of reach due to Thanks Giving weekend.
It's ok to stay here, but definitely not for 4 people... 2 or at most 2 adults and 1 small child.
Very smooth stay. We had 5 guys stay here and it was tight but we made it work. Great location and building. Highly recommend this place for anyone that wants to be close to all the San Fran action.
Great position and communicative host.
Was my first airbnb experience and it was sooo smooth! Josh was very helpful and responsive! Pictures accurately describe how clean (and trendy) this place was, (which was VERY clean and trendy). This location was awesome! Chinatown is a couple of blocks away. We ended up walking to the Fisherman's Warf and taking the cable car back down to the apartment. Shopping center is like 6 min walk away as well as the BART, which was nice since we flew into OAKLAND and took the BART from OAK to the apartment. It was wonderful! Josh even lets you use his bike (although we didn't use it). Nothing but good things to say
Josh was very accomodating towards our stay. We found the place and got our keys with no problems. The area is quite central to everything. Union square was a walkable distance and MUNI was very close. The place was very clean and could easily house 4 people. Everything was in working order. The only down side, like josh mentioned, is the noise level. The apartment is on the ground floor so you do get quite a bit of noise on weekend nights. I didn't find weeknights too bad. Wasn't a huge problem though, sleeping with headphones helped a lot. Thanks for having us Josh!
Place was great.
We were 2 adults and 2 kids.
We had great time and enjoyed our visit very much.
Perfect location - close to everything and there are excellent places just by the appartment.
The apartment itself is very well kept and was very clean. We had everything we needed.
We used the laundry machines which was very helpful.
Josh (email hidden) and helped with everything we needed.
The place is a bit noisy, it didn’t bother us much but might bother others who are more sensitive.
All in all – very good experience. This is the first time we did airbnb, we will definitely do it again.
Josh was great! So helpful and accommodating. I renting his apt for my mom and brother that came into town for 5 days. The only complaint was that the apartment was pretty noisy. It is located on the bottom floor and windows facing a busy street and active neighborhood, so lots of city noise and you can hear people talking outside. Suggested to bring a pair of ear plugs if you aren't used to city sounds. The place was great otherwise. It is a great location!
The apartment was exactly as show in the pictures. The location is great and we had a great time.
I will defiantly start using airbnb after this awesome 1st time.
PERFECT location, and very clean, simple house. All the essentials were there. We stayed with 4 friends and that was perfect. Key pickup ect very easy.
