Originally from NYC, been in "The Bay" for about ten years now. Love it! Easy going and enjoy guests..
The place and location are great, but I would point out one problem that I believe makes the place a less desirable.
The host, Paul, is not actually the person who will host you. Instead, he has a property manager, Jonathan. While Jonathan is nice, it's clear he lives pretty far away, and Paul does not want to deal with your issues.
I became aware of this when I had to wait two hour to get into the place, since the garage door was not working properly. When I finally was able to get ahold of Jonathan, he had to take a long trip up to see me.
This studio was just perfect for us: great location, great size, kitchen well furnished and patio...
We were well welcomed and when we were late for our check-out because of some problems with our car rental, our host was very comprehensive.
We would certainly return there if we go back to SF.
Awesome studio in Hayes Valley, loved the place and location is increadible! Paul coudn't have (email hidden). I would love to come back and stay there again!
My girlfriend and I stayed here in April and had a blast. The place was great; it was exactly as it's advertised, plenty of space and centrally located in a beautiful neighborhood. Checking in/out was easy, too. Highly recommended.
Paul (email hidden)e apartment is very clean and neat. It is enjoyable and in a very cool neighborhood. Paul will make you feel like you are back at home. I'd definitely book with him again.
Have stayed here twice with great results. Great place, great location. Paul was very communicative, helpful, and provided everything we needed during our stay.
The place was great for our needs. Perfect for a couple but can be a little cramped for more than two people. The location is great - so close to everything you will need. Paul and the property manager John were very nice and great to communicate with. When we arrived the place was clean and (website hidden) of all was the massive TV in front of the bed, a great way to recover from jet-lag. We will be back next time we are in San Francisco.
Great location in a cool neighborhood. Close to cool bars and restaurants but also walking distance to other neighborhoods or public transport. The flat is well functioning and has everything you need. It has easy acces and a lot of privacy.
Great place to stay.
Our stay at Paul's place was great. The most important thing to note is the location as it's only a few mins walk to a number of bus lines that will take you to all the major attractions. The neighborhood itself is really nice surrounded by restaurants and shops. The studio is okay. It was clean but a little out dated. If you need a soft comfy bed then this place isn't for you, but if you can stand some foam on a board then go for it. We took this place for the location and price and we we weren't disappointed.
Great location. Many stores & restaurants within walking distance and close to transportation. There was plenty of room.
Biggest issue is the TV. Needs an easier system for using it.
Would definitely stay again.
the perfect guest: easy to communicate with, punctual in payment, and very respectful of our house.
Jon and his friends fit the definition to a tee - they are welcome back any time!
