Thank you TripAdvisor for bringing this gem to my attention. Budget hotel in San Francisco sounds like an oxymoron, especially good budget hotel. But I was amazed to get such a clean comfortable room for $100. That said, as you walk the creaky stairs, hallways etc you will be thinking, "oh no"..... old carpet, old fashioned key locks, etc; feels...

my goodness, first time in SF and I used Trip Advisor to find this hotel. All the positive recommendations are correct. The staff and service is great. The accommodation is clean and we had a second floor room at the back and it was very quiet. If you are elderly, overweight, and not inclined to want to walk up two...

I choose the Metro Hotel due to it's convenient location to a concert venue. But's also perfect for sight-seeing: Alamo Square and Haight/Ashbury are in walking distance. The neighborhood is really nice as well. The rooms are pretty small but very nice and clean! Unfortunately, you hear the alarm clock of your neighbor but that didn't bother me too much!...

I couldn't have asked for a better experience in SF! I loved everything about this place. It was small but that was expected but clean. I almost do not want to share this information in fear that next time I want to stay here, I may not find a room! I would stay here again and again! The staff was...

We found that all of the positive reviews were correct - room was very CLEAN (only soap provided though), staff were friendly and informative, transportation easy to get to and frequent, many areas either nearby or easily accessible.... They can help you catch a shuttle to/from SFO for $10. It took me about 1.5 hours to get to the Oakland...

WoOoW this place was just great for a 3 day stay. We did not want anything fancy just somewhere to sleep at the end of a very busy day playing tourists. Given there are no frills expect to carry your bags up stairs. There is no lift so pack lightly. There is no tea and coffee in the rooms so...

I stayed at the Metro Hotel for five days in late August. I was a little apprehensive staying here because I was warned that San Francisco was an expensive city for accommodations, and the Metro was very affordable....was there a reason it was so inexpensive? Rest assured, this place is the best budget hotel I have ever stayed. It is...

After arriving at the Metro Hotel to celebrate by 40th Birthday I discovered that I had no reservation. My own booking mistake! The staff amazingly phoned, price shopped and booked an alternate location nearby for me. I was blown away. Half of our party stayed at the hotel and raved about the location, staff and cleaniness of their room. Thank...

I was so impressed with The Metro Hotel. My friend and I stayed for two nights while in San Francisco.

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.
