If you don't care about designer furniture or fancy interior design, this is the place for you. It is clean if a little bit worn. Perfect for me. Market Street is a couple blocks away. I will definitely stay here again. Mario was very accomodating. Keep up the good work.

It's not glamorous but it's the best value for money in the Castro. You won't find anything better at that price. I stayed for almost two weeks and...
