I'm a 24 year old, single male moving up to the bay area from southern CA. I'm going to be working in SFO near pier 94/96. I'll be making close to 80K/year. I'm trying to figure out what are some good options for places to live for commute vs. things to do vs. price. I'm open to not living within SF proper. Areas and specific apartment complexes to look at would be awesome. I appreciate any feedback. Thanks!

Lesson#1 - SFO is the airport. The city is SF.

At your age & single, I would recommend living in SF itself. You only get to be in your 20s and single once so why spend the time commuting? On 80k you'll be able to afford a decent place to live, especially if you can tolerate roommates.

I guess Pier 96 is Hunter's Point. You'll want to drive. You could live somewhere in the SE part of SF, like Bernal Heights, and have an easy drive to work, or one of the northeastern cities in San Mateo County. Definitely doable with roommates, or maybe you can get a studio but probably only at $1500 or so. Most of SE SF is pretty crummy though, especially Hunter's Point/Bayview and Visitacion Valley. Otherwise it can be hit or miss.
