About Chez JJ:
We're a hacker house for traveling entrepreneurs and makers. Here, you can get integrated into the SF Bay Area hacker community! Yay!!
Something someone told me recently:
"I'm really impressed with the people you've brought to your place, how quickly successful you've been. It's kind of incredible. :) ...And kind of more fun to cowork out of than [name of popular SF coworking space redacted]."
IMPORTANT: if you are not an itinerant hacker / entrepreneur / designer, you had better be some kind of amazingly interesting person who still has something useful to contribute to the conversation. Please don't write me if you're just here to see the sights.
This is the room with 2 bunk beds (4 spots total). Having fewer people to share the room with is a draw for some people. (Although if you really have a preference over which room you stay in, you should probably write that in the e-mail).

Sasha was a great hostess. Very relaxed and also very eager to help members get acquainted; my first nights there, everyone got together and played "Cards Against Humanity" and I felt at home right away. The other residents at ChezJJ frequently went out together and shared upcoming events that we could go to if we wanted. Sharing a room was also a good experience; the residents were very considerate of each others' sleep schedules and Sasha was very good about reminding us to keep to the set quiet hours so as not to disturb others. Saturday brunch was also great- residents pitched in and helped make the food/clean up together. Sasha didn't just give me a place to sleep; she gave me a home in San Francisco for the five weeks I was there!
Much cleaner than other hacker hostels. Would definitely recommend.
Probably one of the best traveling experiences I have ever had period. Sasha was a gracious host and even organized a karaoke outing for us!
I'm interested in microcontrollers and I learned so much from the hackers staying here. I made some good friends and I hope I can reconnect with them again someday.
The hostel is located very conveniently to the Castro area. The Mission district is maybe a 20/30 min walk. Very safe neighborhood. If you are a developer, hacker, maker, whatever, I highly recommend staying here.
I moved for San Francisco for a new job, and Sasha provided a wonderful place to stay. In my time there, I've met many new people from around San Francisco as well as around the world. The saturday brunches are AWESOME and they come highly recommended! For anybody new to the city, I would highly suggest staying here.
I really enjoyed my time here, cool place, cool people, cool location :) Would love to come back some time.
I really enjoyed my stay at Chez JJ. I stayed for about 3 weeks and met a lot of interesting people. I would miss the super tasty and super healthy Saturday Brunches and evening discussions with fellow room mates. Sasha as a host is very friendly and helpful!
Chez JJ is the closest you'll find to a family home on airbnb in SF. Sasha is exceedingly hospitable and you'll have everything you need to feel comfortable and prepared for the city.
Sasha was a great host. House was clean. It was definitely a busier environment, but everyone was very hospitable and I enjoyed myself for the short time I was there. Thanks!
Sasha is a lovely host. Very social, guests who take the effort to get talk to her will find their time spent here enhanced. The downsides of the place are that it's a bit of an (uphill) walk from the Muni, but once your there it's clean and cosy.
Slightly expensive for a "Hostel" type setup, on the flip-side it's nice and roomy, and arguably more mature than your usual run of the mill hostel.
