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 ranch style home with a U-shape floor plan with communal spaces in the front and sleeping quarters in the back

3 bedrooms - no private rooms at this location
4 full bathrooms
3+ work areas - communal and private work spaces!

The females have a bathroom just for themselves.

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.

My host was very receptive and helpful. The house is big and it has many bathrooms, which I appreciate. The price is great and it is very well located next to the train station. I just wish it was a little cleaner.

Stayed for two weeks while visiting Stanford, and had a great time. Since it's a shared accommodation it's a bit like a hostel, but the guests are all professionals working or starting in Silicon Valley. The location is hard to beat, as it's basically within easy reach of both San Francisco and all of the Valley (and there's two supermarkets within walking distance!). It can be a bit hectic and busy but on average the house is kept remarkably clean for the number of people that stay there. The HackerHome community is very friendly and will provide you with a home away from home, even if that's thousands of miles away across the ocean. Vic is super helpful if there's a problem (as I had) and always responds within an hour or less. I can recommend it to anyone looking to get started or staying for a few weeks, or even months, in northern Silicon Valley!
