Pros: Great location, safe area. Bathroom was nice. Perfect for someone that just needs a roof over their heads while they explore the city.
Cons: upon entering the apartment, I was hit with a strong smell of urine. It permeated the entire apartment to various degrees. I never got used to it. The bed was almost a literal board. I may as well have been sleeping on the floor. It did however come with the most amazing comforter ever.
I'm not saying to not stay here, but I've paid less for a lot more terms of comfort.
I had the opportunity to spend two nights in San Francisco during a business trip. The location of the apartment couldn't be better! Walking distance to the piers in the north and shopping district in the south. The neighborhood at the edge of Chinatown was calm and quiet. The room was just what I needed for a brief stay. Very hospitable flatmates (thanks for the advice on restaurants in the surroundings!). I would certainly recommend this place to any friends visiting San Francisco! /Niklas
Alex was extremely helpful throughout my stay; always responding promptly whenever I needed help. Location was great - a 15-min walk to Powell BART station, and about 20 minutes to Fisherman's Wharf.
Room was small but cozy, although slightly dusty. The bathroom and the rest of the apartment are not the cleanest, but pretty well maintained considering it's a shared space between 3-4 people.
Overall a good stay and I'm happy to have been able to book this place only a few days before coming to SF.
Alex was extremely helpful with my first Airbnb experience and first visit to San Francisco. While I did not meet him in person, it was very easy to get a hold of him via email or Airbnb. The room itself was nice and clean. Although it was on the smaller side, the living room and kitchen were available for use at any time when I needed more space. Alex also had three other roommates who gave me advice on where to go and what to see my first time out in city. They were great to hang out with around the apartment as well. The location was also convenient where I was able to walk, run, or take public transportation to most of the sights I wanted to see. Overall, my trip to San Francisco was awesome, and this Airbnb experience played a big role.
It was very last minute reservation, so thanks to Alex for quick response. I haven't seen Alex in person, but his housemates were very friendly and helpful. The location of the place is incredible! You can pretty much walk everywhere. And it is important that area is pretty much safe. The room by itself clean and cozy, but the apartment is typical share house. If you ok with that I will recommend Alex place to stay!
Alex's room though really small, it's very cozy! The other room mates are very hospitable and easy going. Washroom's clean but you can hear the bell of the cable car from here. All in all, great company and stay.
As a first time guest, I couldn't have asked for a better host than Alex. He was extremely helpful through the whole process and was more than happy to provide help and recommendations for the neighborhood. The room was simple but had everything I needed, and the location was great.
Excellent place to stay! Central location in SF, close to bus/cable car stops, and a great host. Alex was very helpful with suggestions around the city as well! His roommates were friendly also. Couldn't recommend Alex and his place more!
Location is the best! I almost walked to everywhere and there are plenty of food choices in 5 min walk. Even when sometimes I wanna use bus, I can find 2 bus stops around corner. The room is a little bit small that I cannot completely open my 30' suitcase, but still, I had a great stay. P.S. Although Alex was not at home, his roommate was super nice and super helpful! Thx Yousef:)
The location was amazing! Just next to the cable car station and in the middle of city. We did not meet Alex, just his flatmates, but the communication went well ;) The room was a bit small, but for us perfect. Keep in mind it is a flat with three other people and the neighborhood is a bit noisy, but I would definitely recommend it for short stays in SF! ;)
