PRIVATE ROOM Queen Bed Shared Bathrm: Little Italy-Chinatown-Financial District
I really appreciate getting to know my guests and hearing about their lives. I enjoy hearing about your exploring adventures, what you do for work or what you did at the conference, etc. I love giving recommendations and discussing options for what you could do. However, I also am happy to give you space and privacy. In which case, I'll simply ask if there's anything you need and how you're doing. I do my best to gauge my guest's desired level of interaction but I also welcome direct communication. As in, feel free to tell me you would like more privacy/space or more interaction. I treat everyone - regardless of their race, religion, national origin, ethnicity, disability, sex, gender identity, sexual orientation, or age - with respect, kindness and compassion, and without judgment or bias. This is an LGBTQIA friendly household.

Why Owner chose Russian Hill
While new to this site, I have hosted hundreds of guests at my home since 2017 with a 4.9 star overall rating and have received many happy reviews. Here's an example: “I'm not sure that it's possible to write a positive enough review for my experience at Sara's - but I'll try. The house is fantastic, clean, well equipped and with fantastic internal decor - and interesting water saving devices. The location is excellent, hidden away between North Beach and Chinatown, and perfectly located for any exploration of San Francisco. There are more restaurants, bars and general interesting sites within walking distance than anyone could possibly cover in one trip. However neither of these things are important - the reason that I can't say enough good things about this experience is Sara herself, and the environment she engenders. Sara is one of the loveliest, friendliest and all around most positive people I've ever met. She is a font of local knowledge, tips and interesting information, but is also quite willing to chat about most things, and genuinely wants to ensure you have the best possible stay in San Francisco, and experience the city in the best way you can. I'm sure I could say more, but if I haven't convinced you to stay here yet then it's your loss. I'm sure there are other places to stay in San Francisco where you can enjoy the city, but I am convinced this is the best.” - Douglas (who rented a room for 6 nights October 2018)

A hidden gem
Great place to stay; affordable and had everything we needed. Sara was very courteous and went out of her way to make sure we were comfortable. Would stay here again.
Sanctuary in the city
Very positive experience on all levels. The room was clean, and surprisingly quiet. I wanted to sleep in and I was concerned that city noises may wake me early. I slept like a baby. Not the real baby that wakes up every 2 to 4 hours crying, but the baby of lore and metaphor that sleeps long and deep. This room has no outside facing windows, hence the quietude, but I am used to sleeping with a window cracked for constant fresh air, Sara made extra accommodations for me and kept the hall facing window open with a fan in the room and open windows in the rest of the house during the day that made a huge difference for me. This brings me to Sara. an amazingly caring conscientious hostess. Her communications were detailed and thorough leaving me feeling confident in unfamiliar surroundings. She gave recommendations for parking and restaurants, easy to understand instructions and house rules. Awesome neighborhood BTW. In the heart of the North Beach. Fabulous everything in walking distance. Other amenities in the house were excellent. Very clean and orderly. Kitchen was easy to navigate and well stocked with breakfast basics. Teas, coffee and creamers, eggs etc... Bathroom was very clean and a great shower. I was in the city for a weekend long dance festival and was arriving back at my room very late (early in the morning) and slept as late as I could. I could not imagine a better fit for me.
