We stayed here for a couple of nights and really enjoyed our stay. Great location in the Lower Haight and close to lots of good bars and restaurants and of course Haight/Ashbury. The room was great, nicely decorated and clean and bright. The staff were friendly and helpful. The price was reasonable and I would definitely recommend this place to...

Quirky little place great to get the real feel of San Francisco. Great little court yard next to great pizza shop. Very helpful staff who are local. Got suggestions from staff where to eat and had great meals. Room bed good. Yes a fridge in the room would be good.

I love the little garden oasis, and the employees were nice. The room was spacy and warm. I think that they should put fridges in each room, because we did not have one and we did a lot of walking so it would be great if we could keep the drinks cold. The cleaning was great, although our room was...

Stayed here for four nights in early April and had a great time. The rooms are a little small, but the location is great, right in the heart of SF, so you feel like a native. Staff are very friendly and helpful, the hotel has free wifi, and has great access to local restaurants and cafes etc. Very well priced...

We found out about the metro from our daughter in-law's parents. I think we found the best kept secret in San Francisco. We've been to the city countless times, stayed in way more expensive places, and have now found the perfect hotel for us. It's convienent, very friendly, and easy to get to. There are plenty of cafes, shops, gas...

My son lives around the corner, so we have stayed in this hotel several times. I have also tried other hotels in the area. This is by far the best. The Desk Staff make the experience sweet, the rooms are small but clean and have everything you need. The beds are comfy, the bathrooms new. And the price is ever...

On arrival at the Metro hotel the staff could not have been more helpful! They provided recommendations on local places to eat, maps and public transport information and a general friendliness that is sometimes all too rare. The Metro is a great value hotel, the rooms are very clean and appeared recently redecorated, perfect for a couple looking for a...

The Metro is a gem if you are looking to stay a bit off the regular tourist beat and are okay with few frills. The room was clean, but very basic and probably not for the overly picky hotel guest. For our needs and for the price we were willing to overlook the spartan bedding and slightly creepy shower. We...

The hotel is in the Ashbury Haight section near the bus stops. The price is reasonable and the rooms are clean. The shower was a little too small for my 250 lb frame. Best of all was the front office staff, especially Shaena, who was absolutely fabulous. She helped us find street parking and avoid tickets and towing. You have...

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.
