The Space

Our shared private home is specifically intended for students, interns or a J-1 work abroad participants visiting San Francisco for 1 to 6 months. The atmosphere here is friendly and social and we tend to have students from all over the world. You should be flexible, open to sharing, and have a high level of understanding and tolerance to cultures and customs that are different than your own.

Our home was created to encourage as much interaction between housemates as possible and still provide students with more quiet and privacy than is possible in a hostel. However there still is a lot of dynamic social atmosphere in our house. Our two person rooms are shared with other housemates of the same gender, unless opposite gender roommates have agreed to share. Unlike a hostel, the rooms have a desk, drawers an space to spread out, decorate, and make your temporary home feel comfortable.

Housemates enjoy a free high speed internet Wi-Fi, a fully equipped kitchen, private bathrooms and laundry facilities. There's also a community common lounge with comfy sofas, chairs and community desks. Many of us also usually chip in and enjoy one weekly community meal together.

We offer flexible and affordable monthly rates. This is month-to-month rental accommodation so a housemate request application and credit check is required. New housemates pay for at least one month to start. But unlike other homes, that require a fixed term contract, here you always have the option of checking out early, if your plans change. Please contact us for more details on this.

We hope you will contact us for further information.

Overall Guest Satisfaction

Check In
  • I loved living at Shelli's house. I met an amazing and diverse group of people who are like family. The house itself is super conducive to socialization, and it's very well situated close to central bart stations. The whole city is accessible not to mention the awesome food of Chinatown. Definitely the biggest plus of living at Shelli's would be all the interesting and vibrant people who lived there. Thanks for a fantastic summer, see you in 'frisco soon!

  • Shelli's Haus is just an incredible place to stay if you are lucky enough to find an open slot. There are kitchen facilities, laundry facilities, 2 showers, and plenty of places to study/lounge around. The best part about the homestay is the people: all other students/interns just as eager as you are to explore the city.

    For those of you interested in staying with Shelli, I should mention that there is a very reasonable $40 monthly cleaning fee added to the monthly stay once you get to the house. Shelli is wonderful and takes care of all of it!

  • I had a great experience at the homestay! I was from the midwest and knew absolutely no one in the bay area. Since I had so many fun roommates from around the world, I instantly had 12 friends in the city. Shelly did a great job taking care of the house, and it was really fun getting to know everyone. Darren did a great job maintaining the house if there ever was a problem. I look forward to coming back sometime!

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.
