My stay was back on 16th of May. It was only 1 night but it was a TREMENDOUS STAY! It was my first ever Bed & Breakfast ever, and looking at the crazy rates in SF, I thought why not a B&B and it was a great choice! I was staying previous at the Hilton close to Chinatown and couldn't... More

INNKEEPER’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 11, 2016

A chance google search helped us find this gem of a B&B ! We have stayed here 3 times now. Each time has been a wonderful experience. We have stayed in the Red Room twice & the Garden Studio once. Friends have stayed in several other rooms as well. Each room is nicely layed out, with all the necessities, very... More

We were lucky enough to spend a weekend at the Inn on Castro in July this year - I almost don't want to promote Jan's wonderful b and b in case we don't get to stay again, but I can't be selfish. Jan is a great host, having thought of every little detail to make sure the visit is a... More

We have never stayed in a bead and breakfast before but after this amazing experience we will definitely do it again. We spent 8 nights at the Inn on Castro in the White Room and thoroughly enjoyed our time there. The owner Jan was awesome and so friendly as was his assistant Natalia and the cleaner did a great job... More

We spent 5 days at Inn on Castro in December 2015 so this is a little late but knowing Jan(the owner) he will forgive my delay with a smile and an extra french toast for breakfast. Well, me and my wife have stayed in hotels and B&B's across multiple cities but Inn on Castro is our favorite place to stay... More

Highly recommended! I absolutely loved my stay at Inn on Castro! I stayed in the White Room for a few nights and found it to be the perfect place to stay as a solo traveler. All accommodations were more than comfortable, it's very close the the Castro Muni station, and there's a great view of the neighborhood from the Inn,... More

As would probably guess from the name, this guest house is situated right in the heart of the Castro district (2 minutes from the historic Castro Theatre) of San Francisco. For gay tourists, staying in the Castro area is a must, and so the Inn on Castro is an obvious and good choice. Even for those with only a passing... More

My son and I stayed in one of the apartments in a beautiful neighborhood a few blocks from the inn. A lovely gate opened to a short path to the red door. There was a flowering plant that made it most inviting. The apartment was decorated with cool furniture and beautiful art. Great kitchen, living room, dining room, bedroom, bath... More

We stayed at one of the self-catered apartments (Casselli #2) It was a couple blocks away from the Castro, but the neighborhood is very quiet and everyone that lives in the area is super friendly. We ran into several people walking their dogs and stopping to have a little chat. Warning--the apartment is uphill a ways if walking back and... More

Great host! Thank you for your hospitality, Jan; and the good food. "Eat, eat, it's good for you!" Also, Natalia has been the gem of light and sunshine. Convenient location! The F tram is just 5 minutes walk away. And it kind of go "everywhere". Or at least, it gets you to downtown and from there you can transfer to... More

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.
