This place was great. I loved breakfast every morning and our room was very quiet. We had a room on the ground floor and my only complaints were the short ceilings, small-ish bathroom and feeling like the bed might have tilted downward a little toward the head. Otherwise everything was fabulous and one block off Castro and Market: very convenient...

We stayed in the two bedroom apartment on Caselli and it was wonderful! Jan was so accommodating when we made changes to our reservation, and he made everything so convenient for us. The location was perfect and the apartment was absolutely beautiful. Would absolutely stay here again the next time I'm in town - I didn't want to leave! Very...

Great location, okay breakfast but old rooms that don't even have power half the time. Also when I called to figure out how to get power at 9:30pm the inn keeper was rude and seemed annoyed with me that I'd used a heater which can't be used in conjunction with other things being turned on. There might even be a...

The Inn on Castro is a very uniquely quiet and private bed and breakfast/inn right over the heart of the Castro. The bed was cozy, the shower roomy, the staff gentle and accommodating, the amenities (mini frig in the hall, chocolates on the end tables in the hall by the bookshelves---filled with books) homey. I loved being here and felt...

This really great little inn is situated just by Market street/ Castro Street. You have the cablecars and the underground very very nereby. The rooms are clean and different from each other and are so nice. Jan, the owner, is very sympathic host and makes a superb breakfast each morning. Just remember as it is situated just on Castro Street...

This would be our 5th stay here and it never disappoints. Stayed in the Red Room and it was very comfortable as well as quite. Jan was wonderful, he made us feel very welcomed and made killer breakfasts each morning. Will always stay here on our travels to San Francisco. Thanks so much Jan!!! Hope to return soon.

Good , clean, quiet, comfortable room with a decanter of brandy waiting on arrival. Unfrozen circumstances required a second night's stay in the City which was graciously accomplished. Located near many San Francisco attractions with good access to MUNI and other transportation.

The second time staying at this excellent bed & breakfast. I had never looked forward to staying at a place in SF more than at the Inn on Castro. Delicious breakfasts prepared and served by the highly sympathetic owner, comfortable rooms - some with beautiful views. Always pleasant company of other guests around the breakfast table.

I did not want to stay at any of the big chain hotels and was very glad to have found the Inn on Castro. It's clean, quiet, the breakfast delicious and the staff super nice. I especially like the good selection of cafes and restaurants right around the corner. Will stay there again.

Neighbourhood Profile
The Castro
A flourishing commercial area that acts as San Francisco's LGBT community center and cultural heart, the Castro is a neighbourhood welcome to everyone. As one of the first predominantly LGBT neighbourhoods in the United States and currently its largest, it remains one of the epicenters of activism in the nation. Grand theatres and glitzy shops now compete with bars and fashionable eateries for attention, drawing visitors from around the world to the bright rainbow flag acting as its beacon.
