Airbnb Find: Sleep in Someone Else’s Car in San Francisco, Just $103 a Night

Rents in San Francisco getting you down? Try living in a 1990 Chevy Conversion van for $520 a month. It has no Internet or bathroom, but it has a queen-size bed and it runs!

The van is parked at the seediest edge of the Mission District, according to the Airbnb listing.

A studio apartment in the Mission goes for upwards of $1,600 these days — thanks, in no small part, to well paid engineers at successful startups like Airbnb.

It’s not uncommon to see people with financial troubles living in parked RVs not far away.

The van’s owner identifies herself as a freelance writer and hypnotherapist.
