This is my second stay and find the Metro to be comfortable and clean. Easy access to public transportation. It is a great value because it is away from the tourist areas. The staff is very helpful. This stay I rented the efficiency on Page St. More room with a fridge and microwave.

Great value hotel slightly outside the main tourist areas. However if you are willing to walk it is a great location as it is between fishermans wharf/union sq etc and golden gate park in the other direction - there are also good bus links to both areas. We had a great room and if you ring up to book they...

Metro is situated just up the road from both Castro and Haight, a bus ride from downtown and a few minutes walk from some hipster eateries and bars on Fell Street. Gigi and Shana are both awesome at what they do and will bend over backwards to help. The building is very clean and well kept, the rooms are a...

This is my second stay at the Metro and it was terrific. Shana and Gigi were so much help with restaurants and neighborhood information. We especially enjoyed the proximity to Golden Gate Park and the Bean Bag for good food and IPA.

I made a reservation with the Metro Hotel for some family coming from out of town for my wedding. From the beginning - which was months prior to the event -- the Metro Hotel was easy to work with. They sent an email confirmation of my initial reservation, contacted me when additional space I had requested became available on their...

We spent 4 nights at this hotel and even though the rooms were small they held all of the necessities. It was very clean and the staff was exceptional! Matt had several recommendations for eating and we were pleased with each one. It was noisy but the noise stopped by 10 pm. The price was unbelievable for a hotel in...

Metro hotel rooms may have been a bit small but everything else was fantastic. The staff were helpful and genuine (we arrived at 3am). The location is great with a bunch of bars and restaurants within walking distance. Would definitely go back there.

Such a great little boutique hotel that lets you save a few $$ for the tours. Is in a great, safe neighborhood of Lower Haight - yes it is only a few blocks from Haight-Ashbury! We loved the hotel staff, so helpful and knowledgeable of the happenings around the city. Make sure you check their board of activities before heading...

Staying in Haight-Ashbury

Neighbourhood 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 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.
