  • Having been a fan of Amoeba Records for a couple of years now, I felt it was my duty to visit their original location. The Amoeba in Hollywood is my favorite record store of all time. This location is...  more »
  • I'm glad to see that Amoeba Music Store (both in SF and Berkeley) are surviving. The place is a must go for music lovers. Wide selection of new and second hand CDs and LPs. Fair prices and if you spen...  more »
  • It is in the hippie district and one block from Golden Gate Park. The place looks like a hangar; impressive large. Full of punts with CDs arranged alphabetically and by style. On the upper floor there is a smaller environment dedicated to films. As they say "everything as in pharmacy".

  • Unbelievable assortment of music and video CDs of every imaginable type. If you like music of any type, you can find it here. If you don't think that you like any kinds of music, you will find one that you do like here. And if you are a musical specialist who already has everything in your field of music, you will find something that you don't yet have at Amoeba Music. The amazing thing is that instead of paying $10-20 for an album or a collector's edition movie, you will pay just $2.99 or $4.99, or less! Seriously, if you want to find something different that is also a great price, just step into Amoeba Music. You can spend hours here just browsing the titles.
  • This is the SPOT! I don't care what you're into. If you like Gospel or Jazz or Industrial or Noise, this store has what you want! Fair prices and good sale discounts. You could spend hours here if you're not careful (I did!)
  • Fun shop for music lovers! The shop was very well-organized and all of the staff was friendly and welcoming. You will be asked to check your large bags/backpacks at the door, so be prepared. They also publish a "music we like" catalog that you can pick up for free.
  • Went there for Record Store Day, it was awesome. I got a nosebleed so I asked for tissues, they took me in the back to a sink. Told me to take my time and gave me a whole roll of napkins then offered me a seat and water. It was my fist time there and they were so nice! Will definitely be going again soon.
  • Looking for new or used media, this is the place!! Come and explore music, movies, art, nostalgia till your hearts content!! Why does the staff always seem so annoyed just being there?? They also have medical marijuana evaluations on site upstairs for California residents (grab the coupon from SF Weekly, and save a few bucks!)

Where to stay in San Francisco

From inexpensive hostels in quiet residential areas to high-end hotels near the city center, San Francisco has accommodations for every budget. Key consideration is what kind of neighborhood you want to stay in. You'll find luxury hotels in Union Square, which has prime shopping, is near theaters, and is on the cable car line. Many hotels are in the northeastern portion of the city, near the tourist-driven neighborhoods of Chinatown and Fisherman's Wharf, both easily explored on foot. To get away from the tourist crowds, consider the smaller inns and family-run bed and breakfasts in some of the city's more charming neighborhoods, such as Noe Valley or Pacific Heights. There are also boutique hotels scattered around town. Avoid staying in the Tenderloin. If you plan to have a car with you, ask about parking availability and fees. Parking is often difficult and expensive.
