Description

The space

Spacious ranch style home with communal spaces on one side of the house and sleeping quarters on the other side.

4 bedrooms - one private room and 3 shared rooms
2.5 bathrooms
3+ work areas

Guest access

All utilities are included and free WIFI.

Clean linens/bedding, pillow and a 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. This listing is for a private room with a double bed on the lower and a single bed on top.

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.

The neighborhood

Located in the heart of Cupertino and just a short walk to Apple, De Anza College and Whole Foods Market. The location is ideal in terms of walkability. Whole Foods is less than a mile, De Anza College and the main Apple Campus at Infinity Loop is 1 mile away.

Getting around

The bus stop is a block away.

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.

Vic has been a very very good host. Always reachable when needed, helpful and flexible. He is a walking social hub and a very easy going person! Also people that stayed at the HackerHome are very open-minded and easy going. I wished I have had more time to spend at HackerHome. I'm sure I will visit him again!

I had a nice stay at the hacker home. I was initially skeptical about living in a shared space and it did get noisy at times, but it turned out to be more comfy than I had thought. Being near to the Caltrain station was specifically helpful to me since I was traveling and dint have a car. People came and went and every one was nice. A cute place with high speed internet, well connected if you are okay living in a shared space!
