I can't recommend Metro highly enough. I needed a room for one night and the end of my week long trip, and I was so pleased I picked Metro. The price is brilliant, I got the cheapest room and it was small facing a lightwell (but still had nice daylight) as advised but didn't matter as your only there to sleep and store your stuff. The room was very clean with a comfy bed, nice sheets and TV. A ceiling fan provides ventilation if needed. You get your own shower and toilet which for the price is amazing. The staff I spoke to (Shana & Gigi) were warm, very friendly and helpful. Shana booked me a shuttle bus to the airport for $10 which made it stress free. Don't let the fact that its not downtown put you off either. I found the Muni buses regular and cheap ($2 flat rate) and the 21 bus stop which goes downtown in 15 mins is a 2 min walk north on the junction with Hayes. The area is nice, just above Castro and below Haight and I also walked downtown in about 30 mins. SF is a great city to walk around, always walk if you have time! The outside of Metro looks cool and there are nice touches in the foyer like bookshelves filled with books and guidebooks to read about SF and a chalk board with local things to do. If you need somewhere to stay in San Fransisco and want to spend your money on sightseeing instead of hotel accomodation - book Metro!
