    The district is well worth a visit for the murals. We have seen those found in Clarion Alley and Balmy Alley. Take note of these two pathways, otherwise, if you came for the murals, you risk not seeing anything, since they are two tight and not very long narrow streets. Best to go during the day. Also found evidence of shoe tossing, look up!

    As we arrived by bus from Powell, I thought turn me around: dirty, dangerous people looking askance, streets deserted not invite you to stroll among them... but when we got to the street murals, all improved, he began to resemble the atmosphere you can find in Malasaña. In addition, it was pride, the streets were decked out and had great atmosphere, filled terraces, families strolling... So I recommend it, has very nice buildings, nice cafes... but if you can go into Uber, directly into the safe zone, better.

    Cute Mission st. Easy to get there from any part of the city. Easy to buy tickets by phone with the MuniMobile app. Nice murals and what can happen along the way: songs, festivals, ballets, you know a bit of folklore.

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.
