International Hacker Hostel 1

Dorm - Shared room · Kearny Street, San Francisco, CA 94108, United States

The Space

RockIT CoLabs is a new San Francisco hackerspace for both software and hardware projects. Now we have teamed up with our neighborhood international hostel to provide itinerant hackers with the best of both worlds - access to an amazing community of hackers AND an awesome place to sleep that's filled with social backpackers from all over the world.

Your electronic key will provide 24 hour access to both the hostel and the hackerspace which are located 3 doors away from one another in the heart of San Francisco.

The hackerspace is 3 floors of bohemian tech. Upstairs has adjustable height rocketship tables, great wraparound windows, lounge area, whiteboards, large screen video monitors, office supplies, coffee and snacks. Downstairs is filled with hardware toys including workbenches, test equipment, power supplies, projection screen, 3D printer, vinyl cutter plotter, and a CNC milling machine (coming soon). The ground floor provides another place to work and will soon be an electronics parts store. We have 40mbps with wifi access points on all floors.

The hostel is a highly social and well established. It's a great community of international travelers who want to have fun. We've been here for 22 years! Amenities include free wifi and guest computers, guest kitchen, laundry service, solid steel bunks with built in lockers and clean bathrooms.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • It rained furiously during the stay in San Francisco, but I was spared any disappointment thanks to the sunshiny attitude among guests and hosts alike. I met lifelong friends from Liverpool, Zurich, Málaga, Rome, and more. Everyone shared directions, ideas, tips and recommendations. This space is perfect for anyone after a spirited and welcoming social experience with an international flair.

    January 2014
  • Loved staying at the hostel. The staff and other guests were friendly, fun, and easy people with whom to converse and get along. I really enjoyed my stay there and wanted to stay longer.

    The hacker space was good but not great. It did not have the best lighting, vibe, and amenities compared the other coworking spaces I have visited. However, overall it was a good value to it included as part of the hostel stay package.

With the help of some really good friends, I have been operating my hostel for 20 years now. I'm passionate about creating community and enjoy creating environments where new friendships can be easily found. I surround myself with people who have this same vision so you might receive a reply form me or one of my friends. We believe people in the world have more in common with each other than they think, and we like working to find the social connections between people. We also operate from the premise that most people are inherently shy someone to help start the conversation and make introductions. The communities you will find under my profile operate with this basic premise in mind. We particularly enjoy people that have something good to offer the world and we like to learn how they are striving to make the world a better place. We always want to know about that special thing that makes you a unique contributing citizen of the world, so don't be surprised if I ask you a few questions about yourself. We also appreciate people who are willing to compromise their habits and routines for the good of the community We think international travel and friendship is vital to our survival on the planet. We think everyone should visit some far off place they have never been at least once a year. While there, people should strive to find the common interests and connections with their fellow human beings. Our golden rule in both houses is "Be Excellent To One Another." By the way, the photo is me in Santorini, Greece. I look forward to meeting you.
