I'm a molecular biologist working in the bay, I moved here about a year ago, and have since moved to Portrero where I rent this room along with three of my friends.
Very affordable for those on a tight budget. Very small room, so we had to keep some luggage in the car. Room clean, but rest of the apartment was very dirty. Also very noisy from the BART, though Johan provided earplugs. It reminded me of my student days. That said, the bed was very comfortable and Johan communicated very well in advance of our arrival. Neither of us would have wanted to stay here on our own. I would only recommend it for those on a tight budget.
We had a nice stay at Johan's place. It is close to the Mission District and nice restaurants. We didn't get to meet Johan but did meet one of his roommates who was friendly. The room was small, clean, and tidy. We found that the bedroom was not a spare room but Johan's personal room, so there was not much floor or closet space for our luggage and personal belongings. Despite that we felt at home when we were there.
Johan's room was clean and comfortable and his flatmates were nice and welcoming
Had a great time staying at Johan's place. It is a chic apartment in a professional neighbourhood. It is super close to the caltrain - 5 mins walking (but not noisy), which is very convenient for travelling to the bay area. There is a bus into central SF within 10 minutes walking. I shared the apartment with 2 others and 2 very friendly cats. I would stay here again!
The room is lovely and the furniture is all brand new. The apartment is very modern and recently build, the living room and kitchen very spacious. The apartment is located on the east side of Portrero Hill and literally 1 minute from the 22nd Street Caltrain stop, which is great when you want to travel south. The other residents of the apartment are extremely nice - in particular the two cats!!
Congrats on finding your place. Glad you chose to stay with us, you were a pleasure to have around and are always welcome back!
It was a pleasure to host Johan and Carolina. Friendly, clean and very respectful of the space.
Johal was very cool, also very easy and friendly guy.
He left the place really tidy too. All and all a great host, sweet person to have staying here. I recommend him to anyone.
Johan is logical, smart, well-educated, Scandinavian and trustworthy. We have many mutual friends that have traveled and stayed with Johan via airbnb and (website hidden). I'd rent him my place or rent from him with no hesitations.
