We stayed with Michael and really enjoyed our time. He provided us with a separate space for the stay which had a fold down bed and additional seating. This enabled us to have time to ourselves if we wished. The location is excellent for a stay in this city. Public transport a block away and sights within walking distance. Sharing the bathroom was not a problem since the guys have it all under control. We ate out with them as well as cooking together. We used their suggestions as far as sights, bars, etc and this really added to our San Francisco experience. Hope they visit us so we can return the hospitality.
