You don't have to be a carnivore to appreciate the Tenderloin. It's a rich stew of local characters, tourists from Union Square, civic-minded art students and tech professionals with a thirst for nightly adventures. Ethnic eateries, cool culinary pop-ups, and modern speakeasies add spice to the social scene. Whichever way you slice it, the Tenderloin is San Francisco's newest "it" neighborhood.Just around the corner from Lers Ros, Saigon Sandwich, and Brenda's French Soul Food, you will not go hungry here in the Tenderloin neighborhood. 635 Ellis is just a few blocks from Bart, giving you full access to the greater Bay Area and is in walking distance to the FiDi, the Civic Center, and SoMa. This classic San Francisco Edwardian offers a pet-friendly policy, updated finishes, and some with dishwashers. Common areas include on-site laundry and elevator. Live downtown and you're never far from home.This unit is a rental unit subject to the San Francisco Rent Ordinance, which limits evictions without just cause, and which states that any waiver by a tenant of their rights under the Rent Ordinance is void as contrary to public policy.

City Guide for San Francisco, CA

"It is a good thing the early settlers landed on the East Coast; if they’d landed in San Francisco first, the rest of the country would still be uninhabited." (Herbert Mye)

Truly one of the greatest cities in the world, San Francisco is overflowing with world-class culture, cuisine, and charm. It also has the house from Full House and, as you might imagine, any city that hosts the fictional antics of John Stamos is naturally going to be popular, San Francisco being no exception.

More than 800,000 people are condensed into the city’s 47 square miles. The climate is cool and often foggy but rarely bone-chillingly cold, and it’s remarkably consistent (July’s average high: 68 degrees, January’s: 58). With thriving financial, technology, and artistic sectors, there’s a high demand for living space. With breathtaking views, historic neighborhoods, and the thrill of living in a cutting edge city, your dreams are about to come true. Now, let’s find you an apartment!

What to keep in mind when looking for apartments under $1,600 in San Francisco, CA

Finding a deal on affordable apartments under $1,600 in San Francisco is worth the extra effort. Come ready to pounce on the best deals. Call the property management in advance to ask what paperwork they need and come prepared. Bank statements, pay stubs, identification, and letters of recommendation from an employer or landlord are usually standard. It’s better to come to an apartment tour over-prepared and ready to sign.

You probably won’t find affordable apartments under $1,600 in San Francisco in the heart of the action, but you can still land in a neighborhood you love. Look for locations on the outskirts of your dream location or reconsider how much space you really need. A studio apartment may offer plenty of space in your ideal neighborhood at a cheaper price point.

Some property managers will also know about apartments under $1,600 in other buildings they manage, or through word-of-mouth from industry contacts. Ask about any leads if you can’t find the space you need. Touring the first floor for affordable apartments that need some updating can also yield a great deal.
