We are 10 minutes away biking distance from places like the California Ave. Caltrain Station that can easily take you to every part of Silicon Valley you want from San Jose to San Francisco.
Very short biking distance to Stanford University and supermarkets like Walmart, Trader Joe’s and Whole Foods. 5 minutes walking distance from Walgreens pharmacy, Starbucks, Subway, 3 Japanese restaurants, a Thai restaurant and a Mexican one.
We are also very close to the most interesting companies in Silicon Valley like (website hidden), (website hidden), Tesla Motors, Y Combinator, 500 Startups, NASA, Singularity University…You will most likely meet some of the great people working at these companies when we invite them [and you] to our weekly dinners or BBQs. It’s a great and easy way to network and you will form friendships that will last a lifetime.
This place is a great place to stay! Jesus is so nice and I could hardly find the best great words to express about him. He is such a helpful host that I felt at home when I first met him in the house. Roomates in the house came from different countries with various entrepreneurial projects. It has been a great pleasure speaking to them, having dinner together with them and walking around with them. Such a pleasant journey. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend this house to any enterpreneurial guests.
Jesus was such a great host. Super welcoming and accommodating for a group of 8 entrepreneurs we brought to town from all over the world. No complaints.
Perfect startup experience & atmosphere! Very cool and helpful host! Superb when You plan to work & live in Palo Alto neighborhood. Recommended!
My first foray with AirBnB was lucky. I stayed at the Startup Embassy, a rotating community of startup entrepreneurs, when I am not a startup looking for funding. I am likely older than all the guests by 17 years. Still, this was one of the highlights of my life and travel...I did a presentation on gamification to several of the residents one night...and they had a house lunch of paella prepared by a Spanish chef staying there...I smelled the goodness and regret not partaking in the pleasure. I found the energy infectious and Jesus Navarrete is at the center of creating a safe, fun environment for all this activity.
The experience was so GOOD that I am looking forward to returning and will use "startup" as one of my search terms on AirBnB from this point forward..
It was great staying at Startup Embassy for a night. I arrived late but Jesus came to the door to welcome me. I met many daring entrepreneurs. The place had such unique energy and I almost did not want to leave.
I also think the concept behind Startup Embassy is such a great one. Jesus, Max (another residence) and I talked about the genesis of hostel culture and how it ties to startup embassy's goals. We discussed how it would be a great investment to start something like this in NY.
Overall, it was great to stay with so many smart people interested in technology, philosophy, art, and culture. When you put all these talented people in one house you can change the world!
Thank you!! It was only one stay, I know people were great.
I was also pleasantly surprised at the friendliness of the house. There was good conversation.
My second stay here, great as usual! Will definitely come back to the Startup Embassy again. Always meet and get to know interesting people here.
Great place! A perfect environment if you need a cheaper place to stay and are involved in the startup world. It's a great location with easy access to Stanford, Castro Street, and the rest of the Bay attractions. Light sleepers may need earplugs due to the number of people @ the house, but it's a great friendly group.
If you are an entrepreneur or a hacker this is the perfect place for you to stay. You will meet a lot of interesting people here.
There is enough place to work in the house or outside in the beautiful backyard.
Eva and Carlos were great hosts.
Great location in Palo Alto- close to Stanford or Mountain View.
Very stimulating and supportive community of guests. Instantly welcomed and involved in the house life.
Facilities, Check in/out and communication from the hosts were superb.
Very high recommendation to stay if you are in the start up sphere...
