Though the pictures look good, and the reservation was for five people, once we arrived at the premises the entrance to the apartment complex building were dirty in appearance and it smell really bad. Once into the apartment on the second floor (#8), the only sofa was completely dirty, the full bed's blankets and sheets were completely sweaty, dirty and utterly uncleaned. There was only space to sleep three people, one on the sofa (no sofa bed, just a sofa), and two people on the full bed.
Bathroom, floors and kitchen filthy....... My wife and I had to spend about one hour cleaning with Clorox whatever area we thought we were going to touch (bathroom tub, sink and toilette, as well as door-knobs and certain kitchen areas). It seems that an old person lives there and his (or her) relatives rent it out illegally to the Apartment's landlord knowledge.
I do not recommend it; I think AIRBNB must implement an inspection team before allowing someone to post a rental within their system; regretfully, this was our first time using AIRBNB and most likely is the last one since this first (and perhaps ONLY) experience left us completely disenchanted and utterly frustrated....!!!
Stayed at Josh's for a month and had an amazing stay. The apartment is close to Fillmore, Polk and Japantown for great city xploring. The apartment was big, well-appointed and we were super happy to have a lovely piano.
The apartment is really nice and a great location for my interests. There were problems with me finding the key when I arrived late at night, but that is also my challenge to be clear in asking directions. Sometimes the street door was hard to unlock, but he was very helpful.
Joshua was easy to work with for our first time at Airb&b. The apartment was simply decorated with many interesting items but the accomodations could have been better. The air mattress had a leak and we advised him he should get it checked and the bathtub was not inviting. There was also some mold on the plastic window curtains. With a better cleaning service and a few changes the apartment will be a good stay for three or four people at most. Other than that our stay was pleasant.
Nous avons passé un agreable sejour dans l' appartement de joshua. Il est tres bien situé , proche du centre de san francisco, et les bus sont nombreux à un bloc de l'appartement. Joshua est un host tres sympathique et qui répond rapidement aux demandes. Je vous recommande cet appartement. Un petit bémol pour un voisin qui joue de la musique un peu tard le soir.... à bientôt san Francisco.
Josh was an excellent host! His place is clean, warm and inviting and the bonus is that it's so well decorated! Myself and four friends stayed for the weekend and we had everything we needed. It is also in a great location, close to bars and restaurants. I definitely would recommend staying at Josh's apartment to anyone.
Great apartment - very good location - totally recommended !!
Good location, brightly lit and convenient to public transport. Easy checkin. Overall, we found it a pleasant place to stay a week, but see our caveats below.
Note that there's no AC, so if you happen to be here during warm weather, it will be very warm. You can open windows to let through a breeze, but there are no screens on the windows, which led to bugs.
What you get out of this will have a great deal to do with your travel style. The apartment is "clean" by the standards of "visiting a busy friend," but nowhere near hotel-grade cleanliness. (For example, there was mold growing on the curtains in the bathroom.) Also, the host has used almost all of the closet space, meaning that you will literally be living out of a suitcase as you'll have no place to store your things. Finally, the windows at the back of the apartment look out on to what can charitably be called a dog park--basically a sandy area for the dogs of the building to do their business. If the wind is blowing the wrong way, you may think twice about opening windows.
These caveats aside, it's a good place to stay. I don't think my wife and I would come back, because for the price we could get a nice hotel room at many of the nearby boutiques. But if you had kids or otherwise needed a lot of space (and aren't a neatness fanatic), it's a pretty good deal.
Joshua's flat is absolutely lovely, beautifully decorated and well maintained. The bed is huge and very comfortable. The location was excellent and easily reached on the Muni bus routes.
Joshua communicated very promptly and sorted out a payment issue very quickly and easily.
However we did struggle to find adequate blankets for the two of us sleeping in the living room and one of the blankets provided was stained. We also struggled to find enough crockery and cutlery to cater for the four of us staying in the apartment.
Overall we had a great stay and would return again if we come back to San Francisco in the future.
Loved the apartment, great location, great size. Thanks for letting us stay. Had an issue working out the front door key. Two blocks from bus to the waterfront, shops nearby for groceries. Thanks again!! Would definitely stay again. Washer and dryer very handy for a family trip, trying to find quarters was the only issue with that. Great place.
