Our family of four stayed three nights, and the Metro was great for our needs. The staff was really helpful and delightful, the rooms are immaculate (but tiny!), and the location is central and easy to get to and from.

We stayed at the Metro Hotel for three nights and had a wonderful time. It's in a great location, near many good restaurants, public transportation, and a few blocks from Haight-Ashbury and Golden Gate Park. The room was always clean, with fresh towels daily and relatively quiet. The best part of our stay here was the hotel manager/owner Shana, who... More

We had a tiny room with two singles and the bathroom was so small it had to have a pocket door. No appliances except a hair dryer. This is not a bad thing. This is how you get affordable accommodations in San Francisco! It had charm out the wazoo and the staff were exceptionally friendly. I could hear a voice... More

Couldn't be more pleased with our stay at the Metro this week for three nights. The room was clean, modern and the bed was very comfortable. The staff were so helpful and friendly, offering us tips and lending us travel adapters etc! Perfect location for the Castro which is what we wanted, but we also accessed all areas easily with...

This was our second stay at the Metro Hotel in San Francisco. The first time was a great experience and we wouldn't stay anywhere else. We stayed for 4 nights and this time had a lovely room that faced the main street. We loved the big windows and it was very quiet and you hardly heard any traffic. The bed... More

What a gem, right on Divisadero, walking distance to the club, the Independent, our reason for our stay here. Small but clean rooms, comfy beds, and a great price! Super nice front desk person.

Friendly, welcoming staff. Small, but clean and comfortable rooms. This hotel is Si close to the main attractions in SF and public transport is near by if you'd like to travel further. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here. Thank you Shayna.

The 1010 Page unit was spacious, clean, and well appointed. The Metro is in a destination neighborhood with many great dining options all within walking distance. The staff was very accommodating allowing us to store bags when we arrived early and paperless checkout was super fast on Monday morning when we were in a hurry to get to airport.

This hotel was perfect for our needs. The rooms were a bit small but all we needed was a safe and clean place to sleep and this is that place. When we walked in we were greeted right away and they even allowed us to put our stuff in the room hours before check in. They also offered us another... More

Staying in Haight-Ashbury

Neighbourhood Profile
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 neighbourhood 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.
