The host lends just the right level of attention with fun stories and useful information. The unit itself is cozy, the beds are comfortable, and the place is clean, though the rococo bathroom and low ceilings made me wish for overt references to Alice in Wonderland. The location is exceptionally convenient via public transportation or on foot, so skip the car! Unless you're a wizard with a microwave, don't expect to cook here ... there is a fridge but no stove. But that's fine because San Francisco (Mama Ji's, the Cove on Castro, R&G Lounge, Harvey's).
