The biggest Apple fan, technology aficionado, and a VC wannabe.
I love traveling. I've been to 20+ countries and 49 (out of 50) US states.
I'm friendly, cheerful, respectful, and open-minded.
We had a geat stay at Alvin's apartment! The views from Potrero are incredible, and the neighborhood always felt safe, no matter the hour. As well Alvin's room was perfectly clean with all the necessities.
Thanks again Alvin. Wish we could have met! Happy hosting.
Alvin was a truly great host – friendly and thoughtful in preparing the room and making recommendations for enjoying the nearby area and city. He even checked in with us by email and SMS a couple times throughout our stay to make sure all was going smoothly. His room was tidy and modern, and his apartment was a perfect location for us being right near the CalTrain, a short walk from the MUNI, and easily accessible by cabs (I used the TaxiMagic app for this, without problems) to go anywhere else. The week flew by and I only wish we could have stayed longer! Staying at Alvin's place made this trip both more comfortable and more affordable than staying in a hotel closer to the city center, and it gave us a fun opportunity to explore the beautiful Potrero Hill neighborhood, to which I'll definitely on my next trip to San Francisco. I would highly recommend Alvin and his place to anyone visiting SF – whether it be for the first time or for a return trip.
It was our first time using Airbnb and we could not be happier. Alvin's place was gorgeous. His roomates were very friendly and we just felt right at home. Alvin keep in constant communication with us making sure we had everything we needed. He suggested us great places to eat and to visit in SF. I will definitely be booking his room when I go back to San Francisco. I greatly recommended his place.
Overall, the room was in a good location on Portero Hill, with many places close by and close access to public transportation. We saw Alvin on the first day and he was very friendly and helpful in getting us squared away.
I had a great stay -- the room was comfortable, Alvin was very communicative and helpful (even though we didn't actually get to meet in person), and the location, while not exactly in the center of everything, was especially nice for a car-visit to SF -- street parking was plentiful and free, there were multiple freeway / main road connectors, and downtown SF was only an easy 5-10 minute drive away.
I only saw Alvin when I arrived but he was welcoming and informative and insured that my stay was convenient and comfortable. The housemates were all friendly and his room was very clean, well-organized and pleasant with lots of light and a nice view during the day. I recommend Alvin's place highly.
Alvin was a great host. Although we did not meet him in person, he left us a very positive impression. He answered our requests about the apartment very quickly and gave us very detailed instructions about everything related to his room and the apartment. The location was perfect: a couple of blocks from the Caltrain station (22nd street) and a short bus ride to the Mission area (10 minutes). Also, other buses make it very convenient to reach most interesting parts of the city.
Next time I am staying in SF, the first thing I will do will be to look for availability of Alvin's room!
We stayed for a total of 7 nights at Alvin's. The apartment is extremely well located for those who need to travel to Palo Alto - the Caltrain is just a block away. The apartment itself is very comfortable, despite the fact that the 4 roommates are present.
Alvin was a very friendly host and he made sure that we had everything we needed during our stay.
Fantastic host - really responsive, everything was as he said. The place is modern and new and the complex is clean, sharp, safe. Had a really great stay and the coded locks were a real convenience. Two thumbs up.
Welcome any time
Thanks Alvin...you were wonderful!
Thanks a lot Alvin to spend New Year's Eve in my apartment. I hope you had a nice stay in Barcelona and you found the city fun and interesting. Whenever you want to come back feel free to contact me. Thanks again and all the best. Ramon
Alvin and his family were delighful guests. Everything was easy with them from the minute they arrived to the moment they left; polite, friendly, courteus...always smiling and good humoured. I can recommend them to everyone in Airbnb community.
Alvin, his brother and their mother were fantastic persons that we had the privilege to host at the flat! They had a great and good communication and after they left we were surprised with the housekeeping and cleaning of the apartment... Everything was superb!
Thank you so much to the three
Hope to have you back again!
Alvin has been a careful host and has excellent communication at all times ... thanks
Un buen cliente, un placer alojarle en nuestro apartamento.
Great guest. Left the place very clean. Would recommend to any other host. Thanks, Alvin!
Alvin was our guest for almost a week, and was attending a conference off property. We didn't see too much of him, but what little we did, he was very considerate and easy to talk to.
I stayed over at Alvin's place and really enjoyed it. His room is spacious, well-lit, modernly designed, and has great full window view of Potrero Hill and the Bay It's extremely clean, tidy and well-organized even from a girl's high standard. He's easy-going, considerate and fun to talk to. His roommates are also easy-going, friendly and fun people.
Clean, considerate, fun, and a great person to have intellectual conversations with.
