  • I stayed for one night after a late night flight. This is a super nice place. I had originally planned to leave early in the morning, but I hung around for a few hours because it was so nice to meet the great people who live here. Jocelyn has done a great job managing this house and keeping it comfortable and clean, and she's attracted residents who are talented, interesting and friendly. Provisions in the kitchen are generously shared, so I felt really well cared for. I had a very nice time, and I would seriously consider coming here longer term if I ever need to.

  • Jocelyn is down-to-earth woman with great hospitality! The place is close to Cal train station (walking distance) and SFO. I walked around the town before I head out to SFO. good chinese restaurants and eateries!

  • An all around positive experience. The neighborhood was quiet, pleasant and extremely convenient for public transportation, just blocks from BART. Everything in the house was clean and well ordered. My fellow guests were charming and helpful as well. The bed and other facilities were very clean and comfortable.

  • Great atmosphere and very considerate and interesting group of people. This was a great place to land on my first night in SF.

  • My request to Jocelyn was very last minute, but she was kind enough to accommodate me at her place for the night.

  • Great location, very close to BART station. Before check-in, I was a bit worried because there was a little instruction on how to check-in & which bed to sleep in, but once I met Jocelyn, she was actually very nice & friendly. Other people staying in the house also helped me figure out how things work in the house. Once that's cleared, I found it a very interesting great place to stay, especially for those who are in technology & entrepreneurship.

  • It was everything I expected. I needed a place where I could come late at night and crawl into the right bunk-bed. You get to meet an eclectic group of residents and stay in a quiet neighbourhood while being in close proximity to SFO.

  • Jocelyn was a phenomenal host. After staying there for over a month you meet many different people, all who are incredibly respectful. Overall great experience, I would fully recommend anyone looking for housing in this area to stay there because you cannot beat the value and most importantly the experience.

  • Jocelyn was a great host! She has a great place with lots of respectful people.
    I came to stay for a job interview that I didn't have a timetable for.
    Jocelyn was great at being flexible on my check in and check out times.
    I would defiantly stay there again in the Bay Area!
