We stayed in the Green Room in early October and had a fantastic time. The B&B was very comfortable and clean, and the staff were all friendly and welcoming. The location was perfect, with transit easily accessible close by and lots to do/see within walking distance. I would highly recommend the Inn on Castro!

The Inn on Castro is a great B&B located really close to the F-line streetcars which run all the way up Market Street, so it was very convenient. Also located within walking distance to restaurants. The breakfasts were great with lots of options. We were in the "Yellow Room" on the first floor, near the entrance so I thought it...

Really nice spacious apartment, in Castro but away from the hustle & bustle. Great transport links to all the best San Francisco has to offer. Jan is a great host. Kitchen not the best equipped but perhaps is not aimed at self-caterers.

I stayed at the Inn On Castro for just over a week in September. I was in the Hideaway Room. It was perfect. Location-wise The Castro is great because there is always plenty of activity around at night, which always makes me feel better when travelling alone. The muni stop was super close and made the whole city relatively easily...

My second time staying at the inn; the first was on vacation for a week with my partner in 2005. When I found I was coming back for business, I knew where I wanted to stay. The inn was convenient both to my business event downtown and to the heart of the Castro, just a few steps away. Literally the...

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