A BART station is located at 16th and Mission. It's a highly trafficed area with cars, buses and pedestrians. My suggestion would be to first hang out there with your friends for dinner/drinks, etc (Valencia Street would be more of the area for that but it's very close). Because of the numbers fo restaurants/bars, etc it stays pretty active pretty late.
Is there a particular building you had to mind to buy into? The Citrino is around the corner on S Van Ness. As I suggested, you may want to do some of your socializing in the area to get a feel for it. Then you may want to rent for a while unless you totally like the vibe there. It's certainly a very convenient location if you need public transit.
Happy to help so don't hesitate to call or email if you have any other questions.

I sold the top floor unit at a complex right there and she loves it. You need to beware that the underground muni can cause the building to shake a little. The area is vibrant and exciting with new restaurants and a diversity of people. It can be noisy and at times people use a corner of the next bloock as a soapbox for their viewpoints. Also boom boxes and loud music from cars. Plus the complex making porno films is one block the other way. I would also check out crime by going to http://www.sfgov.org and looking at the crime stats.
I would also drive around there on week nights and on weekends so you can get a feel for the area and its plusses and minuses. Only you can decide if you would like to live there.
I live in The Mission on 19th and Bryant. The Mission is a vibrant area with lots of diversity. Be very careful on which block you choose as the neighborhood can change very dramatically. There is a great unit coming available in my building that is very quiet. If you are interested in touring in The Mission Please let me know.
