Everything was perfect, the apartment was cozy, two blocks from Market area, there are a lot of homeless but it seems a common thing around downtown, because of the tourism.
The apartment was just great. Ideally located, clean, and charming. Eric made the whole thing a breeze too, working with me to sort out key collection at an antisocial time of night (my flight got in to SF super-late). I hope to stay there next time I'm in the city!
Easy, flexible, comfortable, and clean. Had a great stay and recommend it to others

I did not meet Eric personally, but exchanged several
emails and text messages with him. His studio was very clean as you can see in the pictures. It was the perfect size for 2 people. His place was very convenient, near many bus stations and restaurants, and a quick walk to Civic Center and a block away from Folsom. We parked near the Orthodox Church/Rumors bar 2 blocks away, which is unmetered and free (just watch out for the street cleaning hours). He was super flexible with the check out time which we really enjoyed. Although not a problem for us, I thought I should mention that the apartment is facing a busy street, you can hear people outside and cars driving by.
The only thing I would suggest is if he could mail the keys out as other airbnbers have done for us in the past (I didn't ask if he could do this for us, maybe he would have if I did). Our 6 hour drive became 8 hours because of heavy traffic, therefore we were late to meet his friend for the keys. (Sorry you had to wait for us, Charlie)
We enjoyed our stay and would stay again :)
Love! This place is exactly what one or two people need for a weekend in the city. Absolutely PERFECT location, quiet building, clean amenities. Times in and out were flexible, which was also extremely convenient. Eric was attentive and coordinated the key exchange according to our needs. This was my first Airbnb experience, and I cannot imagine it better. Thanks, Eric!
The apartment was the perfect size for a quick weekend getaway. it had the essentials like a bed, small fridge, mini kitchen and bathroom. the location is in a pretty good area (central to many things), however at night it can get a little scary so we used sidecar anytime going out at night or coming back at night. Eric provided us with some linen but no mattress sheet so we used the fitted sheet instead, no big deal. I didn't realize there would be no tv. The internet was pretty slow, so we couldn't stream any movies/shows off of netflix or play any music off pandora because of the lag and we had to disconnect our phones from the wifi to get a faster service. the bath tub was pretty dirty and my boyfriend had to scrub it down with paper towels, it might have been because it wasn't cleaned the last time it was used and then wasn't used for a long time. the water pressure was good and no problems with temperature. It is noisy at night and early morning because the windows didn't shut completely so we could hear all the cars and trucks driving by. The blinds are also very thin so once the sun came up the room became very bright. i read some of the previous reviews about noise from people, but the neighbors were quiet we didn't even see anyone the whole time we were there. there was a mix up about check out times but Eric was kind enough to accommodate us. I have mixed feelings about this place, but i'm sure with a few fixes this would be a perfect get away spot because of the location.
All in all the apartment was good. It was very close to Moscone Center (about 8min to walk), like described. The bed was very comfortable and the apartment was well-resourced. The internet connection was very slow.
I was disappointed about the bathroom, because it was dirty at all. Especially the shower containted a lot of hairs.
I don't felt very safe in the area outside of the apartment, but that may just be my personal feeling.
I would recommend the location with some limitations.
Eric's place is in a great location in the city. The apartment is nice and clean. The room is spacious. Eric and his flatmate are really nice and very responsive and flexible. I can recommend staying here when in San Francisco.
I give Eric and his SOMA apartment my highest recommendation. The apartment was very comfortable and clean. Eric and his roommate were very respectful, hospitable and flexible. The room is spacious and would be perfect for 1-2 people. Location is perfect -- very centrally located.
