  • This bookstore is awesome. Its an absolute must visit if you happen to be within range of Inner Richmond-lil China. I like browsing at the music section. They have a pretty decent selection of obscure vinyl. I could easily spend hours holed up in here. The postcards & throwback mini toys are an added bonus.
  • An assortment of books and more! One of the best remaining local owned bookstores! Highly recommended!
  • Always a great place. Very funky, with a good local feel. Well curated selection of books, covering every topic you may need. They have free book bins outside, that turn over very fast. They also sell vinyl. You can custom order things, and they come quickly (if in stock of course). They even buy some books, mainly to supplement their inventory.
  • One of the best book stores I've ever been to, with old and rare books and cool original reviews posted on the shelves. i could spend hours here
  • Very cute and quaint little bookstore. Loved all the bargain priced books on the first floor. ❤️

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.
