This place was really cute and we felt really safe here and liked the neighborhood. We had to share 1 shower and 2 toilets with an entire hall of rooms though and there is no a/c in the rooms only an overhead fan. There is a sink in the rooms. The mattress was older and super squeaky. The breakfast was... More

The Hayes Valley Inn is a brilliant place to stay! So rooms, the room we stayed at was very clean and neat with beautiful wooden furniture and a sink. It was a shared bath and toilet however, it was always very well kept and clean. We stayed beside the street and it is a given that there will be some... More

We stayed in one of the new quads which was perfect for exploring the city with kids. The beds are comfortable and the room was updated with new paint and carpet. You can indeed hear street noise through the open windows but it didn't keep any of us awake. No lines for the bathrooms or shower. Friendly staff helped us... More

Stephanie and her staff at the Inn are so great! They foster such a sense of community for the non - touristy traveller. My sister and I thoroughly enjoyed our stay! The rooms were really clean and cozy. Perfect location! I would 100% stay again!

The Hotel is small and comfortable. The breakfast is simple but great. The wifi works fine. The room are large and welcoming. And of course the location is just great. It's really a great address! It looks like they have a lot of returning visitors. I went there on a friend's advice, and I'll come back next time also.

This hotel was a great value! It was pretty decent and I would definitely stay there again. The staff was friendly and helpful. The rooms, while basic, were nice and well-kept. The breakfast each morning had a good selection. Before I left I actually took the time to look the hotel up so I knew that there was only 1... More

I search for the best bang for the buck hotel in the happening area of San Fran. I love walking...7 mi in one day doesn't bother me. So this inn, with the Haight Ashbury, Castro, and Mission area to the south and Union Square, Japanese Center, Embarcadero, etc to the north, was just right for me. And it was reasonably... More

If you disregard my review, be sure to heed this warning...do not stay in a room by the street. It is extremely extremely noisy. call in advance to request a new room. The street rooms are terrible. You share a 2 toilets and a bathtub with up to 20 or so other people living on the floor. The floors are... More

Staying in Hayes Valley

Neighborhood Profile
Hayes Valley
Chock full of designer boutiques, art galleries, funky shoe stores, and great restaurants, it’s hard to imagine Hayes Valley once languished in the shadow of a major freeway. Its removal allowed for the creation of an attractive boulevard on Octavia Street with a community park at its center and dozens of trendy businesses to satisfy visitors looking for a stylish respite.
