I need to find a room to rent in San Francisco. Is there somewhere aside from Craigslist that I should be looking? Thanks!

Nope, it is all about craigslist, particularly in San Francisco.

sorry, just came in to third that sentiment...craig really is the guy to see in the City.

I get my apartments pretty much through an extended network of friends, colleagues, etc. - if you have any peeps in SF already, it's worth putting out a note to them letting them know what you're looking for. There seems to be a high preference for friends of friends on the rental market, so you might be able to pick up something that hasn't hit craigslist yet.

Thanks, folks, that's pretty much as expected, but I thought I would check in case you other mefites knew something I didn't :)

I'm starting to look in SF too, and craigslist definitely seems to be where it's at.

There are a couple tools that can make it easier to use though (man is SF CL high volume!). These both plot craigslist ads onto a map, have lots of great filters, etc.
