We stayed here for a quick visit to San Francisco to celebrate our anniversary. The location is awesome. The owner, Jan, was a gracious host and we enjoyed all the variety available for breakfast. I definitely recommend it!

Right in the heart of Castro, close to good restaurants and shops. Great service and yummy breakfast everyday! The bedroom and bathroom were always clean! The hosts are very friendly and helpful, recommending places to eat and things to definitely see while in town.

For our first ever trip to San Francisco, we decided to avoid the big hotels and try something a little different: we were not disappointed. We had a fantastic stay in the white room at the Inn on Castro and absolutely loved being in such a great location. After days cycling over the Golden Gate Bridge and climbing the Coit...

The location of the Inn on Castro is perfect. It takes you away from the most touristy of areas and sites you in a fun, diverse neighborhood with lost of dining and entertainment options and easy access to transit. The Inn is a pleasant place with friendly hosts. Jan and Diego were delightful, and morning breakfasts were a friendly opportunity...

We've stayed at the Inn on Castro twice now and had a great stay both times. Jan is an excellent host who takes a real interest in the guests and makes an excellent breakfast. The Inn is a relaxing spot just off Market Street. Highly recommended.

Neighbourhood Profile
The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart, the Castro is a neighbourhood welcome to everyone. As one of the first predominantly LGBT neighbourhoods in the United States and currently its largest, it remains one of the epicenters of activism in the nation. Grand theatres and glitzy shops now compete with bars and fashionable eateries for attention, drawing visitors from around the world to the bright rainbow flag acting as its beacon.
