The HackerHome Network
Whether you're new to the Valley, bored with your current housing or need a transient place... I would like to help. When you reserve with me, you'll have instant friends and be part of a network of 10 homes in the Bay Area.
Newly built custom home with an open kitchen and living room.
4 bedrooms - 1 private room and 3 shared rooms
3 full bathrooms
All utilities are included and the WIFI is fast!
Clean linens/bedding are provided + a fresh towel.
Why would someone say light cooking? Home prepped meals really warms up the house and it's encouraged.
It's a house full of people & different schedules. So please use ear plugs if necessary. If you're a light sleeper or can't sleep on a single mattress, this may not be the right place for you.
We are a very communal/respectful group and strive to provide space for everyone to work and hangout. Remember that work, musical instruments and books take precedence over the television.
This is the suburbs of San Mateo, but it's a 5 minute walk to restaurants, shopping and grocery stores.
Only a 10-15 minute walk to San Mateo Caltrain and downtown San Mateo.
Too tired to walk? We have bikes you can use that will swiftly get you places fast!
More than one suitcase? Consult with me prior to making your reservation.
Respectful Housing for Women
Females in a separate room. If you'd like to stay in the girls' room, please check with me on availability before reserving. If you don't have a preference, then just make your reservation.
The Airbnb cleaning fee is to make sure you have a clean bed upon arrival and not to clean up after you. All spaces are shared, so please be mindful of picking up after yourself. If you're a longer term guest, remember to use one bath towel and wash it with your own load of laundry.

San Mateo hackerhome is awesome. Host is very kind, helpful and considerate. I love the hackerhome mate there, all are fun and cool guys.
Miss you all. Stay in touch, Vic!
Vic was an amazing host! I stayed there for 3 months during my internship. The location was great - very short walk or bike ride to caltrain (and san mateo caltrain is a main one, too). Vic provided all the basics such as sheets, tooth brushes, shampoo, towels, and more. Foods such as cereals, easy dinners, snacks and other breakfast foods are provided. We had at least 5 "family dinners" where Vic would come and cook us something tasty. The house itself is very nice. It is a very modern looking house and very spacious. I always had somewhere to sit. The Wifi was a little iffy at first but once brought to Vic's attention he got in touch with comcast and replaced the router with a new one and since then it was blazing fast. With three bathrooms, each with a shower, I never had to wait in the mornings. There was plenty of closet space to keep my things. There is also a garage where I can safely put my bike, which was great. Vic also had some bikes there for use. It was also interesting to meet all the different people who stayed there. I met other interns, founders, and people from all over the world. Overall staying at Vic's hacker home was a great experience and I would go back again. It was nice not having to worry about finding an apartment for 3 months and dealing with furniture, utilities, and going out to buy all the small things necessary to live that Vic provides for free. Thanks Vic!
