I moved in to San Francisco a year ago and would like to share some insights from the neighborhoods that became my favorite ones.
Financial District/Embarcadero. I’ve been living here for a year and my favorite place so far is Ferry Building located on Embarcadero. Weekend farmer’s market offers tons of food choice from fresh oysters, home made ice cream to local creamery cheeses and California produced wine. The atmosphere there is unique: lots of tourists and locals, very lively and vibrant. If you step outside of the building you’ll experience street musicians, joggers, beautiful Bay bridge view, and ferries floating to neighbor towns like Tiburon, Sausalito, Oakland, and Vallejo. Also, you can take a walk at one of the Embarcadero piers and watch old fishers hunting for crabs and fish.
North Beach. Great neighborhood to eat at the daytime and explore at night. You’ll find a lot of Italian, Indian, and Chinese restaurants, confectioneries, and breakfast/brunch places. Relax...
My name is Rafaela and I'm from Brazil. I graduated in Business Administration and I came five months ago to San Francisco to improve my English skills so I'm a student like many of you.
I really enjoy the facilities that this big city can offer.For example: public transportation, entertainment activities, welcome people, open minded society, wide gastronomic menu and awesome places to visit.
One month ago I started my internship at Latitude 38.
I choose to be part of Latitude 38 Housing Services because I saw the company recognition and its purpose which is to provide affordable, clean and convenient accommodation for students, Interns, young professionals.
So, I could imagine myself in the reader's position because I had already been in the same situation looking for a good and affordable place to live in San Francisco. Because of that in Latitude 38 I try to offer relevant information that I know our readers are looking for....
Tucked away in a quiet nook in one of the busiest and bustling parts of vibrant San Francisco are to be found some of the most deluxe and prestigious Female Only student housing facilities in the city. The overarching and immediate feeling is that of safety and security.
4 cottages all similar in that they are new construction and all uniquely different.
Tasteful and thoughtfully designed... from the moment you step into the colorful walkway with antique style lamp-lighting, they all greet you with a burst of energetic and vibrant colors whilst maintaining a sense of peace and calm.
They come in a variety of shapes and sizes: a one bedroom cottage sleeping four andtwo bedroom cottages which sleep three in one bedroom and four in another and they are all fully carpeted. Each cottage and each bedroom within the cottages feels light, airy and spacious.
All have beautiful new kitchens with tiled floors and granite worktops, under counter lighting and gorgeous fruit wood cabinet...
Last Wednesday, Yuki and Gabe participated in an Off-Campus Housing Fair at University of San Francisco. It was a great event and we thank University of San Francisco for having us. It was a pleasure meeting the many students that came to our table looking to explore the possibilities of living downtown in San Francisco. We know that it is difficult to find affordable housing during the high rent season and that's why we are here! Thank you again #USF for letting us be a part of your housing fair.
Our ladies, Aspen (left) and Yuki (right), had the opportunity to volunteer at the CORFAC International Spring conference at The Palace Hotel right here at home in San Francisco. TRI Commercial was a sponsor and host this year and it was great to be able to be a part of such a great networking experience. Both girls are interns at Latitude 38 Group (a division of TRI Commercial) and are looking forward to being able to attend the conference one day.
I know, your number one question: How on earth am I supposed to find housing?
Answer: Latitude 38 Housing Services!

Why would I pay a lot of money to stay in a tiny palce or share a room? - Because San Francisco is totally worth it!
We all know about the recent 'tech boom' and we all know how hard it can be to find (and keep) a place to call home. With rising costs in rent and no sign of them going back down, the idea of co-living is coming back with a vengeance! This is a great option for those single 20&30 somethings who are young professionals, students, or people just chasing their dreams in San Francisco. Benefits are a family community, cooking meals together, making new friends, you name it, co-livings got it!
We are happy to provide quite a few of these spaces to live in the heart of San Francisco and happy that others are going back to this way of living.
1. Wait in line (forever) at Mama's in North Beach. Its worth it, I promise. (hint: best to go on a Tuesday or Wednesday morning. Way less of a line, or better yet, none at all).
2. Coit Tower. After you have stuffed yourself silly at Mama's, go walk/hike/run it off!
3. Take a trolley ride. Now, you may be asking WHY? They are busy and full of tourists. Just remember... its all about the experience. (this ride can put you in some of the best spots in the city too. especially for views)
4. Haight. GO. Go see, smell, and best of all... watch. Its sure to take at least half of your day. There are great brunch spots too: Cha Cha Cha, Pork Store, Squat and Gobble.
5. Golden Gate Park - not only is it the biggest park in the country, but there are lots of things to do there. The Academy of Sciences ( who has a happy hour on Thursdays), the DeYoung Museum, Japanese Tea Gardens, a field of buffalo, great running/biking paths, and when you have walked/ran/biked all the way through, you end up at B...
