About this listing

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.

The space

Spacious 2 story home with plenty of work areas. Three bedrooms on the first floor and two bedrooms on the second floor.

5 bedrooms - 1 private room and 4 shared rooms
4 full bathrooms
4+ work areas

Guest access

All utilities are included and free WIFI.

Clean linens/bedding, pillow and blanket are provided.

Why would someone say light cooking? Home prepped meals really warms up the house and it's encouraged.

Interaction with guests

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.

Other things to note

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.

Cleaning
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.

Best Way to Reach Me
1. Complete your Airbnb profile with an ID/Passport and connect your social networks.
2. One line about your purpose of visit.
3. Let me know your estimated time of arrival.

This is a great place to stay if you want central housing in San Jose. Also the people staying there are super friendly and always willing to help if you have any questions.

Vic was super helpful communication-wise, and the home itself was really nice. The people there were chill, and it was a cute neighborhood. I'm really glad I stayed here!

I stayed for a week at this place and had a great experience with it! I stayed in a 4 bunk bed room with two roommates. They were all nice, and I didn't have any trouble with them. Everything was accessible! The bunk bed can be a bit uncomfortable, but considering the price, it was a great stay!!!
