I stayed in a hostel and private room. This place is amazing. If you are looking for a traditional hotel, look elsewhere, but if you read up on who they are via their website redvic.com, and know that you are coming into someone's home, you will be thrilled. The rooms are clean with the most comfortable beds ever. It is... More

The Red Victorian describes itself as a collaborative living space, requesting you to fill out a form about yourself before they will accept you as a guest. They will then confirm your reservation, take your money and cancel your reservation the day before you are due to arrive, with no explanation, no telephone number to contact anyone. Just an email.... More

The Red Victorian room (Flower Child) was a standard room and was very clean. The area (Haight Street) was not the best at night and limited what we did after dark since we did not feel comfortable walking outside to get to anywhere local or to the bus stop.

Great people, location and atmosphere. If you are not into Hotel chains, this place is for you ! Visited before heading to Burning Man and was great to meet fellow burners. Shared space was great to share stories/experiences.

In choosing the Red Vic we were looking for a non-trad experience and we certainly got one. The common space on the first floor is more interesting and welcoming than any chain hotel. You can meet other travelers or the folks who reside here. The rooms are akin to any nice, clean B&B. And we liked the range in rooms... More

If you want to stay in a place that really reflects the atmosphere of the Haight in a good way, this is it. My son and I, who prefer hotels with personality and character, love the Red Vic, wouldn't stay anywhere else to explore this region, but this wonderfully funky hotel definitely isn't for everyone. Checking in on a Sunday... More

The Red Vic served its purpose...an affordable resting spot within an historic neighbourhood, with great eclectic food and shopping options nearby. The self-important profiles of the other residents will make your eyes roll back in your head, and for a place centered on communal living, the fellow residents were incredibly inconsiderate. The 11pm quiet-time curfew was not followed, and there... More

My room was not made when I arrived. I checked with the "front desk" and they said something like "we try to do something about it". Also, the key for the room I received after asking for it... did not lock the door - at least I was not able to lock it. When I returned from dinner in the... More

Some of these reviews are definitely outdated - Ignore anything more than a couple of months old. Here's the current lowdown: The Red Victorian recently came under new management, who are a young and refreshing group - The rooms are all open but the renovation is so fresh they're still putting finishing touches on the common area. I suspect this... More

I loved staying at the Red Victorian Bed and Breakfast. My friend and I needed a place to stay in San Francisco for a night and this was one of the only places left to stay (they had a cancellation). Our room was lots of fun, it had a very unique decor. We had a shared bathroom, but we never... More

Staying in Haight-Ashbury

Neighborhood Profile
Haight-Ashbury
The area surrounding the intersection of Haight and Ashbury streets, “The Haight” still exudes vibes of the 1960s counterculture as a haven for vintage clothes, music, pop posters and body piercing shops. While the Summer of Love ended decades ago, Haight-Ashbury has turned into a melting pot of hippies, hipsters, and professionals. Walking through its streets can still feel like stepping back in time. A must-see neighborhood for most music fans, it’s easy to see why these streets attracted the likes of the Grateful Dead and Janis Joplin. You’ll likely be content in The Haight day or night, just be sure to wear some flowers in your hair.
