Start Up Embassy is really cool place to stay if you work are working up a tech project or running a tech business. There is a nice atmosphere, where you can mix with other founders and share experiences of the start up scene. The hosts are great, really friendly and cool.

The reception was friendly, clarifying, and professional; it was more like an orientation, a necessary one, because Startup Embassy is vibrant with lots of moving parts. Once I got settled in, the hospitality turned into a warmth. I came and went as I pleased, and while I was there, I felt comfortable and relaxed. I recommend Start Up without reservation or hesitation.
