Residents sleep in four-person and six-person bedrooms. Each bunk comes with underbed storage bins, your own half-height closet space, and additional suitcase storage. All upper bunks have a bedside-table space.We use the main living often for movies and shows, but it is also a calm place to hang out and have a relaxed conversation. We also have musical instruments residents can borrow, since many residents find it difficult to travel with instruments but miss them.

The space

Radio Eden is a living space strategically designed to accommodate the needs of a diverse community. Its name comes from the campus's many fruit trees.

We have three shared sleeping rooms each for particular type of sleeper and sectioned away from social rooms. We have a community room, a crafted deck, three kitchens, and a quiet workspace.

Transportation: 5-10 minute walk from Caltrain/VTA, goes to both San Jose/San Francisco People: there are so many great things to say about the people. Just come and try yourself. Convenience: Restaurant street right next door, and you can do a lot of stuff, so... (Netflix/HBO, you know) Environment: Library really close, park is also close. Good place to walk and run around. Overall: I love it! Please come and try it out. One downside: It's very easy to sleep late while talking to these cool guys! Have self-control and sleep...

The dorm is very close to downtown, convenient to walk to many places in Mountain View. You will have to share your room with other roommates. When I was there, it was only me and another nice roommate. This wouldn't be a problem if you're a sociable person and love the shared environment. Although I was hoping the place was more tidy, but the price was unbeatable for my budget. Friendly and smart folks. Thanks for having me there!

Things can be busy or quiet, depending on the season. But the house rule is to be nice, and everyone was at least that. Enjoy the comraderie, it will feed you!

This hacker house is more than a place to stay, it's a quasi home away from home. The guests and staff are a friendly, no bs genuine crew of science and tech nerds. There are a few musical instruments around too. It caters well for private space as well as social activities like board games, jam sessions, movies and obscure conversation. The beds and bathrooms are basic but clean and the place is run professionally with check in and out and allocations. I didn't utilise the kitchen spaces. Definitely suits the solo traveller looking to avoid being alone during their stay.

Katy Of Radio Eden User Profile

We are Radio Eden and Alliance Dvaraka, two happy independent dormitories. Each provide flexible communal living, particularly for short term residents like interns, exchange students, consultants, etc.

Our RAs based at Radio Eden (Mountain View) are Katy, Eric, and Derrick.
Srikanth is the RA for Dvaraka (Palo Alto), though he often gets backup from the Radio Eden RAs.

Katy is the house head of Radio Eden. She is a former NASA roboticist, Xoogler, and a jack of all trades. She helped run Hacker Dojo during its more community-centrered phase. Eden is the 9th communal house she has helped run. She likes video games, PJs, and her husband named Cliff who is not part of the company but also lives on campus. Cliff is a graphics programmer at an independent game studio. He likes the 80's, things which go "boom," and Jeeps.

Eric is an RA based at Radio Eden. He is a physicist, mathematician and former grad student. Eric moved in to Stonehenge in March 2015 to finish a paper he wished to write independently outside of grad school. He helps with strategy, logistics, and focusing on what is highest impact to the resident's happiness and the dorm's overall health. He likes philosophy, movies, books of every kind, and being right.

Derrick is an RA based at Radio Eden, but currently at Alliance Dvaraka to finish Srikanth's training. Derrick started as an economist but since then has spent a lot of time studying math, languages, literature, programming, machine learning and playing Marth in SSBM. He has been intermittently with the crew since 2013, and now focuses on logistics. He likes anime, ironing, neoclassical music, and extremely specific lightbulbs.

Srikanth is the house head for Alliance Dvaraka. He is a physicist turned programmer who now works in international immigration. Srikanth met the group because he went to college with Eric. He likes meeting people, art, EDM, board games, Burning Man, and generally being an extrovert.

Taiyo 社長 (pronounced Taiyo Shachō) (English: President Taiyo) is the landlord's cat who lives with us. He is huge, grey, and while he often does visit with the residents outdoors, the only indoor place he is permitted is the RA's unit as many residents have allergies. When not overseeing the company and our guests, he studies ornithology and applied optics. Eric also keeps a golden knee tarantula named Dash in a tightly-closed container. Dash was a surprise gift from his brother, makes Eric incredibly happy, and is never permitted outside of the RA's unit.

Shared hobbies of all the RAs include Super Smash Brothers Melee, casual philosophy podcasts, media from different time periods, trying to be decent programmers, anime and cooking, though we each have individual tastes.
