Host was really good, the place is small, but what I expected. Clean, nice, and everyone there was really friendly.

I felt welcomed. Everyone was pretty friendly. I stayed for less than a week and was able to get work done as the house is pretty quiet and there is rarely anyone in common areas during the day. My roommate was pretty cool, had good conversations with her. Overall, it was a conve…

Response from Andy:
Great feedback, Leena. We will be increasing the frequency of our professional cleaning, and taking steps to encourage other guests to clean up after themselves more consistently. You're right that the shorter term the guest, the more common such problems are. Regarding number of kitchens and bathrooms, we just added an additional bathroom to the building and are remodeling all of the others to make them more comfortable and easier to keep consistently clean. And we're remodeling two of the three kitchens to improve throughput, storage, and counter space, so that the flow of people works better. Regarding the tight space, that's here to stay. This is not a place to kick back in a private house and enjoy the solitude. It is instead a place filled with interesting people, some of whom might be sharing your room. Regarding proximity of grocery stores and other amenities, it's a trade-off. This house is across the street from Lake Union, with amazing views of the lake that define Seattle. There is no place in town that has both such spectacular Lake Union views and a grocery store a block away. For people who prefer proximity to grocery stores and other amenities, our Io House location on Capitol Hill, with a full size grocery store one block away and myriad dining options within a few blocks may be a better choice.

For the two weeks I was here, the house as a whole was a fun place to be. It's filled with people working in various parts of the tech industry, who mostly seem to be there for at least a couple weeks, if not months, so they try to keep up the house and the community. I was shari…

I loved my time in the house. It was an interesting mix of young people who are motivated and friendly. I would recommend this place highly if you're in your 20's and want to be around a group of smart people. I loved it so much that I came back to the house after I moved out jus…
