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 one block 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.

Price includes 16.5% Hotel & Tourist Tax
