Hatim was the ultimate host! Not only was he super chilled but we also shared the professions of music recording and composition, which was great as he happened to have a recording session at his place during my visit which he invited me to ... An awesome session with two great Lebanese musicians. Couldn't have been a cooler few days at his place and a great introduction to life in San Francisco! Highly recommended!
I recently moved from Europe to San Francisco and needed a place to stay while I look for an apartment of my own. Why I chose to stay at Hatim's in the first place was because it was in a relatively short walking distance to my office, I didn't even check to see what his place had to offer :) so it was a really nice surprise once I got there. I don't consider myself as a musician, but I really had a lot of fun playing with those instruments.
Hatim is a super sweet host, a really interesting person to talk with, and he always made sure I got everything I need, and even taught me a few good practices on piano ;)
I recommend staying at his place to anyone, it really does feels like home, you won't regret it.
I stayed with Hatim for 3 weeks while I transitioned to living in San Francisco. My experience was excellent. Hatim was a great host and helped me get acclimated to the neighborhood and the city. The Mission is a great neighborhood to stay with easy access to downtown. If you're a foodie, this is your spot, lots of small great restaurants to be found. The room is very simple but comfortable. More than adequate for my needs. Make an effort to stick around for one of Hatim's afternoon piano practices-- he's a very gifted musician and provides an awesome soundtrack for your stay. Thanks for the great experience, Hatim. Hope to see you around the city!
Hatim is a great host. He is very friendly, welcoming, generous and considerate. We had some great conversations and shared meals a few times. He is a talented musician and he has always invited me to the shows/gigs he plays around the city, but unfortunately I haven't had a chance to attend his performances yet. His place is a good spot to chill, and in a great location. Parking is very easy in the area.
We had wonderful experience at Hatim's. This is also our first Airbnb experience :-) we love it. He is really nice and cool guy and has a very nice apartment close to everything.
Hatim is gracious, thoughtful, and caring living in a beautiful and welcoming environment. His home is very centrally located in the Mission very close to BART and MUNI. Artistically Hatim is completely inspiring, creating music and working on other interesting projects. He is easy to get along with, respectful, kind and trustworthy. What joy to be around him!
As Hatim's brother, I'm biased, but after living with him for most of 2013 while I was in San Francisco for a Fellowship with Code for America, I can confirm that he is a wonderful host. Even if you're not musician, you'll enjoy Hatim's piano sessions.
The apartment gets lots of sun, and within walking distance you'll find several bus stops, and many top notch restaurants. I recommend Local's Corner.
