Hi I am Alefya from San Francisco! I love living in SF and the fun that comes with the city.
I am an animator studying at the Academy of Art. I love to cook, read, hike, do yoga and mostly laugh! :)

This was my favorite location in SF! Lots of shops and cafes nearby, close to public transport, and conveniently located near most of the main areas of the city. Communication with Alefya was great and she made sure my entire stay was fantastic. I wish I could've stayed longer :)
Alexey you were a great guest, you're welcome back anytime!
Alefya was very welcoming, location was good and seemed safe/secure. Pictures were accurate, but slightly brighter and with less personal items around.
This was my first AirBnb experience and Alefya made it very easy! She had all the essentials ready for me when I arrived, which made things a lot easier. The WiFi was reliable which was important since I was there for work. The studio is very well located with everything you need nearby.
I had a great stay and would definitely recommend!
Thanks Mark, glad you had a wonderful stay :)
* Very friendly and helpful host.
* You have to yourself a comfortable studio with all essentials provided.
* Reliable wifi and internet.
* Convenient location in the downtown San Francisco.
* Not many apartment buildings in this block so curb parking is ok at night.
* Quiet street; all tourists are next block, on Powell Street. :-)
* Still a bit of noise from the street, particularly at night, but what would you expect from San Francisco downtown living? And you soon get used to it. :-)
Thankyou! I am glad you enjoyed your experience! :)
The apartment was just what was described, and more.
It IS a warm and cozy studio, it's very well located, and very quiet.
The host (Alefya) was very nice, helpful and flexible with check-in/out times,
and made sure that the apartment had everything I needed.
Thanks Misha! So happy you had a great stay and enjoyed your experience! :)
Alefya was a great host. She was very attentive to my needs, and checked in with me via text frequently while she was out of town. This area is a great location in terms of convenience, safety, and popularity. It's a busy area, so keep that in mind... Anyways, I had a great stay (nearly 2 weeks!) and would recommend Alefya's studio to others. Thanks!
Thanks Monique for your kind words, I will definitely keep your suggestions in mind :)
Great place, great host, would stay there again!
The reservation was canceled the day before arrival. This is an automated posting.
I stayed in Alefya's place for 8 nights with two of my family members. The place is exactly the same as what it says in the headline - a warm cozy studio. First of all, the room is clean and actually bigger in person than in the photos. We felt comfortable staying together even though we have 3 people. In addition, the air mattress my mom and I slept on is pretty firm and as tall as a real bed. We were not bothered by the fact that it's not a "real" bed at all. Furthermore, the little kitchen was very helpful for cooking light meals occasionally when we didn't want to eat out.
Other than nice things inside the room, I would highly recommend this place to people who visits SF for travel like us. The studio is located in probably the best area in the city in terms of convenience and reachability. The buses and Bart are within walking distance. Caltrain is just 10~15 mins away by bus. Because of that, we could plan a day trip easily to the outskirt of the city or even south bay without worrying about transition between different hotels. After dinner, we could still have time to explore the stores and shops nearby. It really helped us to take advantage of our time during the trip.
Overall, it was a wonderful experience. Alefya is very responsive, nice and flexible about scheduling time to meet and setting things up in the room for us. I would definitely consider staying in her place again in the future!
Thanks Wan for you're kind words! You are welcome back anytime :)
This was my first experience with Airbnb and I'm quite happy to say it was a great experience. Alefya was an excellent host (I didn't get to meet her in person, but her friend welcomed us to SF).
The description of her studio apartment is quite accurate: its is most definitely cozy. I was in San Francisco to race in the 2012 SF Marathon and was accompanied by two friends (three of us total) and the space was more than adequate for us to sleep in. After a long day of sight seeing, walking around town, and eating everything in sight, going back to Alefya's place truly felt like coming home. The building itself was quiet and private. There was a small convenience store right outside which made it great for us to get any snacks or toiletries we might have forgotten.
Her studio apartment is conveniently located next to a parking garage with a reasonable overnight fee. Union Square, Chinatown, the Embarcadero, Westfiled shopping Centre, and Metron were only a few blocks away! Even getting to AT&T park felt like a short little stroll.
Alefya was kind enough to provide us with towels, snacks (coffee, tea, juice, milk, and some breakfast items), and some miscellaneous toiletries for our stay. She had a kitchen and an eating area, which we did not use because we ate out the entire time we were there.
I would highly recommend her as a host, and hope that she will have us back if we ever visit again!
Alefya and her mother stayed in my cabin for a couple of days. She was very easy to communicate with and gave me some great feedback. She was extremely appreciative and left everything even nicer than she found it ! Thank you Alefya, come back anytime !
Thanks Tamara! Come visit me in SF!
It was really fun hosting Alefya. She is a lovely young woman, very smart, easy to talk with, very open and communicative. I would definitely enjoy having her as my guest again.
Thanks Marcy! I look forward to seeing you again :)
Alefya and I didn't cross paths during her stay but our interactions online were great. She kept the room and the house neat, and I would recommend her to other Airbnb hosts!
Alefya and her family stayed in our house for 2 weeks over the Christmas and New Year period. They were very clean and tidy and respectful of our home. We would be happy to have them stay in our house again.
Alefya was a pleasant and courteous guest. She was clean, quiet, and respectful of neighbors and things. We enjoyed hosting her very much and recommend her as guest. Hope we have chances to host her again in the future. She is a good communicator.
We loved having Alefya as a guest. She is a very good person and we finally found time to enjoy a visit over tea on her last morning. We hope to keep in touch since she lives in the Bay Area. Any host would truly enjoy Alefya as a guest. She is also occasionally a host as well. Great guest!
Oh my goodness she was so sweet, I really enjoyed having her as a guest. If you are ever in Portland again I hope you come visit.
Thanks Luisa! I hope you'll come visit if you're ever in San Francisco! :)
I would certainly have Alefya stay at our cabin again, they left the place very tidy and clean and we had great communication going. They were great guests!
Alefya was a wonderful guest! Quiet, clean and professional. She communicates very well. I highly recommended!
Alefya was an honest guest and she took good care of my place while I wasn't here. Wishing her the best in her travels!
great location and super comfy! SF is awesome and this place is close to the best of the city! enjoy your stay here :D
