Die Lage ist super, es gibt viele Restaurants und Delis, auch zum Shoppen gut geeignet, mit der BART ist man in ca. 25 min in San Francisco. Das Zimmer ist sehr groß und sauber. Vom Freeway ist man gleich dort und es gibt Parkplätze. Es war sehr angenehm dort zu sein.

Very nice place. Totally disagree with review of 4/20/2011. Hostess was very honest about everything - no misunderstandings. Seems, I had a different room though: large bedroom with double bed and enough shelf space. The WLAN also worked nicely.
Great: accommodation includes breakfast and you can choose what you want! (stuff will be purchased on demand) No small refrigerator needed, since there is plenty of room in the main refrigerator, which guests are welcome to use as well.
Very friendly and playful big dog lives there too. So not for ppl with allergies or who don't like dogs.
Location is a little far from university campus (bus 51B works fine though) but very close to marina.
Overall, I can recommend this place.

These accommodations were very disappointing and the advertising and/or communications with the hostess quite misleading. The very small room did not have a bed, the hostess placed a wooden board with a foam mattress over worn-out springs of an old sofa bed. I had to leave and find different accommodations after not being able to sleep for several nights. The room was very small, it did not even have an adult chair or dresser. The small refrigerator was not usable due to its noise, and the window did not work either. There was no private place to sit or work - the room consisted of children's toys and an old sofa-bed.

Anita ist sehr nett und zuvorkommend, Rio ist ein sehr gut erzogener Labrodor. Ich hatte ein Wohlfühlgefühl, einfach heimelig. Würde immer wieder zu Anita gehen.
