This is the closest to staying as a friend in someone's home that I've ever felt in a B&B. Jan was delightful and a great conversationalist. He told me he's been doing this for 33 years, so I'm sure that he could give quite a history of his time in the Castro. The only drawback, that you should be aware of, is that they "close and go to bed" at 8 pm, and they were pretty clear with me that they prefer no late check-ins. Once you check in, of course, then you've got the key and can come and go as you please. They provide a list of area restaurants that they like, grouped by both price and distance, and they have plenty of advice about other things to see and do in SF. Breakfast was delicious, and eaten at one large table, witch really facilitates conversation with folks. There was a great mix of European and American guests when I was there. I felt very comfortable staying there as a single woman.
