Excellent host and great welcome at this b&b. Very informative. Delicious breakfast with fresh fruit, home baking and freshly prepared cooked choices. Red room has a rustic feel and the benefit of a small 'sun' room.

We had the top room with great big, comfortable bed and excellent view east across the city. Very good private bathroom included. Jan is a terrific host and personally provides a delicious and varied breakfast each day, when we had great conversations with the other guests. He and his sidekick David are great sources of information about where to go... More

Great apartment, great location, great place to stay in San Francisco. So comfortable and close to transport making it easy to get around. Comfy beds and lovely bathroom. Look out for the Hummingbird that visits the garden. We'll be back for sure.

We turned up unexpectedly and were lucky enough to get a room for the night. Jan was extremely accommodating giving us loads of useful information about SF and surrounding areas. The property itself was beautiful. Well furnished, comfortable, clean and so close to local bars and restaurants. Breakfast was simple but absolutely beautiful. We are so glad we were able... More

What a great place for you stay in SF!!! The location is great as it is in the heart of Castro of SF. It is very convenient as you can take metro and buses nearby. The atmosphere is safe and calm although you may find some gays or les. However they will not do anything to intimate you. Many convenience... More

We spent our honeymoon at the Inn and it was wonderful. Very nice staff, very helpful, very clean room. We had the "White Room". A stocked fridge was provided free and a free breakfast. Centrally located in the Castro area.

Had a lovely time at the Inn on Castro. The location was excellent and the facilities were great. We stayed in the Hideaway Room and this was so quiet and secluded that it felt like we were the only ones in the Inn. Breakfast is fantastic, delicious and has everything provided. Sharing breakfast with the other people staying at the... More

Great location and close to the muni. Though there was noise at night, the fan drowned it out. Comfy bed too! Jan was a great host and offered ideas on dining out and getting around the city. Lots of restaurants close by.

Jan, the innkeeper, was incredible. The place was immaculate. The daily breakfast was as good as any brunch spot and included in the price. It is also located right across the street from public trans. Very convenient. I would absolutely stay again and have already recommended this place to friends.

Staying in The Castro

Neighborhood Profile
The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart, the Castro is a neighborhood welcome to everyone. As one of the first predominantly LGBT neighborhoods in the United States and currently its largest, it remains one of the epicenters of activism in the nation. Grand theaters 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.
