Welcome to Curbed Comparisons, a column that explores what one can rent for a set dollar amount in various San Francisco neighborhoods. Is one man's studio another man's townhouse? Let's find out! Today's price: $2,300.

↑ In the Western Addition, $2,300 will nab you this renovated studio with a huge private deck. The renovation was no joke: new kitchen, bathroom, and gleaming hardwood floors. That said, you have to be down with having what appears to be burnt orange kitchen countertops. The building has on-site common laundry, parking's available for an additional $300 per month, and pets aren't allowed.

↑ This rental's for you if you're looking for a very cute one-bedroom apartmentnear Golden Gate Park. The floors are parquet, the kitchen's got pale yellow vintage appliances, and the bathroom is fitted with a pink toilet and sink. On Judah Street in the Inner Sunset, it's a mere two blocks from the park. There's shared laundry in the building, but no pets or mention of parking. It'll cost you $2,295/month.

 It's unusual for a rental in Chinatown to come onto the market, so it was a delight to find this rare unicorn while combing through the listings. It's $2,295/month and claims to be a one-bedroom, though if the photos are any indication it's a very, very tiny unit. The apartment was remodeled from top to bottom and has a small but nice kitchen and bathroom. No mention of pets, parking, or laundry.

 On a budget (by San Francisco standards) but still hoping to score a pretty large kitchen? This Lower Pac Heights one-bedroom apartment is for you. It clocks in at 700 square feet and is currently listed for $2,300/month. Bonus: It has an additional room that can be "used as an office or storage." No mention of pets, laundry, or parking.

 This is a corner studio on a busy block of Russian Hill. It'll cost you $2,350/month. It should be noted from the listing that "AS A CONDITION OF THIS RENTAL, AREA RUGS REQUIRED ON ALL WOOD FLOOR AREAS PRIOR TO MOVE-IN." So, make sure you budget for covering all of the pretty hardwood flooring up with your own money. No parking, no pets, no laundry.
