  • Justin, and the house, are amazing. Justin is an easy going host who runs a tight ship and is very open to discussing anything that any guest wants to talk about. I *will* re-book.

  • Great experience staying here. All of the people I met at the house were very friendly and welcoming. Had good conversations with everyone. If you're involved in the startup scene this is THE place to stay!

  • I stayed in Mountainview as a stop to check out the area for several days before a big trip I had planned. I'm so glad I did, because my the stay was just what I was looking for. I was hoping to come and go easily, and chat with housemates rather than stay in an isolating hotel room (which would have been pricier and lacking in character!) The house is in an incredibly central location, and in a nice, quiet neighborhood. I stayed in one of the bunk rooms, and it was well planned to be spacious and create space for each person to wake up and do their thing. Many people stay for months at a time, and I am tempted to look into this myself as there is everything you need...dressers, closets, fully stocked kitchen, backyard, and most importantly, live-in hosts who are cool, courteous, and knowledgeable of the area.If you're a 20 or 30 something and you stay in a hotel room rather than here, you're definitely going to miss out!

  • Great people, great place. Was just what I was looking for!

  • Quando cheguei, não sabiam sobre minha reserva.

    O pessoal da casa foi pouco aberto ao diálogo (exceto o Justin), cada um ficava a maior parte do tempo com seu computador e fone de ouvido, o que para mim é contra a proposta de um ambiente empreendedor.

    Dois cachorros vivem dentro de casa, se você é alérgico poderá ter problemas.

    O local é próximo à via principal, onde passam duas linhas de ônibus e a um supermercado.

    Considero um local econômico para dormir no Vale do Silício, mas o ambiente não foi favorável para trocar experiências de empreendedorismo.

  • Could be an awakening jolt of literacy.

I'm from Tennessee originally, but I've travelled a bit. I'm was an electrical engineer and operations research engineer for Toyota prior to getting back into programming and starting a company. I have a two-year old golden retriever that is adorable. I love eating different and unique foods from many countries. Any questions, feel free to ask away :D
