Jocelyn and her merry band of Airbnb-ers gave me an experience I will not soon forget. Thank you.
This was more of a hostel experience than other airbnbs I've rented. What was great about it was the opportunity to meet travelers of various kinds. In one short night, family was created. Shared food, stories, and adventurous spirit were had by all! I feel like I made 9 new friends who wanted to help and support me. I even got some new business ideas from talking to my fellow housemates!
In terms of comfort, this is not the place to choose if you want luxury accommodations. I was given sheets to a top bunk bed and instructed to make the bed myself; the co-ed room was shared with four others (no privacy); and there was competition for the bathrooms. Nevertheless, it felt safe and fun and I would do it again!
I already left a review. The house is tons of fun
I had a blast. Super easy to get to from the airport. I do wish I woulda known that the BART would drop me nearby. I met all sorta of amazing people and I bet you will too. I say do it.
I didn't personally get to meet Jocelyn, but everything went ok. I popped in for the evening and considering I didn't get in until 11:30 there weren't any hassles. When I left in the morning I was able to find the BART alright and continue my day. Thanks for the stay!
I had a really nice time at the house. Jocelyn is a smart person and the the nice thing is that everyone in the house was really nice.
A great and safe environment and very close to the BART stop.
Jocelyn is a great person. I really liked the place and the people in there.
The Hacker Hostel is a really relaxed environment with lots of interesting, young people that crash. I never actually met Jocelyn the entire time I was there but managed to find the linen closet and an open bed with no problems ....this is a great place if you are looking to get a taste of a culture that is unique to the Silicon Valley hacker culture. This is a low-key, relaxed place, but just know to keep an open mind and be low maintenance!
