We can find little fault with the interior of this studio, which features freshly refinished hardwood floors and a recently remodeled (if a tad generic) kitchen.  So why so low? Our one guess would be that since the location is on Franklin instead of Hayes, it's bound to be somewhat noisier and a bit less savory compared to a block or so West. That said, the close proximity to Hayes Valley - one of our favorite neighborhoods in the city - makes it definitely worth a peak. Other cons would be that the unit is on the ground floor, no laundry facilities in the building (though there are apparently some in close proximity), and there's street parking only. But it's all about location, right? And it's hard to beat this neighborhood for $1095 a month. Hayes Valley Apartment for $1095
