It's quite clear that the San Francisco rental market is hot hot hot right now, so here at Curbed we're going to bring you a bevy of rental properties each week for your perusal - one in each price range for budget, middle-of-the-road, and luxury. In the spirit of the 101st running of Bay the Breakers, we look on the route at Hayes Valley.
Budget: The cheapest listing in Hayes Valley clocks in at $1,545 for a studio at Oak and Octavia. It looks to be pretty mini, but in good shape with a clean look and good light. Laundry is in the building, so no schelpping to a laundromat. Check to make sure you're not getting any pesky highway noise, or rejoice in how easily you can get on the highway from here.

Middle of the Road: The Hayes on Page and Gough is a fancy condo building but had several rentals available. This studio will run you $2,250 and you get amenities like a roof deck, doorman, gym, and parking. You even get your own washer and dryer. The kitchen is dreamy and the carpet looks new. [craigslist]
Luxury: If for some reason you still wanted to live in a studio but just wanted to pay more money, you could move in to this other unit at the Hayes. The same amenities as above, but for $2,700 you also get... um, we're not entirely sure. In fact, this unit looks to be the same size or maybe smaller than the other, and there are no views to speak of. Dark kitchen cabinets and perhaps some higher end appliances could be responsible for the additional $450 per month. [craigslist]
