One room available in the Homes for Hackers house fully wired with Google Fiber gigabit internet.
Perfect opportunity to visit Kansas City and test out your latest app, startup idea or consumer hardware on a gigabit fiber-optic network. We now have a total of 18 ethernet jacks positioned in 7 different rooms in the house to plug directly into a hard line, accessing Google Fiber. We typically experience upload & download speeds of 800-900 Mbps with the ethernet hard line and around 150 Mbps using the wifi access throughout the house. One block from the Google Fiber Space.

The other rooms in the house are already in use by up to 4 startup entrepreneurs as part of the Homes for Hackers program. Excellent collaborative opportunity to bounce ideas off of other entrepreneurs and hackers that are also staying in the house. In fact, by renting this room you are directly supporting startups and entrepreneurs in Kansas City. Homes for Hackers is also a member of the KC Startup Village, around a dozen startups in a 2 block radius, including the 3 startups at this location.

Plenty of desk space around the house to work, with whiteboards in 3 different rooms.
The bathroom is shared. The accommodation itself is very basic. Kitchen is fully equipped and available for your use but breakfast is not included.
Ample parking spaces. Walking distance to the Country Club Plaza upscale shopping area and Westport restaurants/bars/coffee shops.
Nice place, Unfortunately, Could not find many people to exchange ideas and experiences, as the site remained almost empty throughout my stay, but what a cozy place where you can test the full potential of fiber (website hidden) even alone. Place clean and as described I recommend.
My colleague Mike stayed here during my reservation, he said: My stay at the Hacker House was great. There was lots of working space, great Internet (including Ethernet jacks everywhere, including the bedroom), full kitchen facilities and a convenient location.
My stay was great. Ben made sure everything was setup for me and kept up with my hectic, delayed transportation. He even allowed me to stay an extra night to compensate for my late arrival. I got to talk with the guys at the house and hope I had stayed more to get to know them better. All in all, everything was perfect and I would certainly be back.
thanks ben for the use of your (website hidden) fiber connection.
I really loved my time at the Hacker House. First off, I love the atmosphere of a house filled with interesting and driven tech people who are willing to share their passion with you. Chris, who is developing an app for the nuclear construction industry, fascinated me with his knowledge as well as welcomed me as an excellent. Host. The crazy fast internet was also pretty sweet. I'd definitely stay here again :-)

Fantastic spot for anyone visiting #KCSV and wanting to experience Google Fiber.
Ben stays on top of guests' needs and is easy to contact if needed. Fellow guests in "Home4Hackers" aren't you're normal crowd. I was very pleased with everyone's mutual courtesy and self responsibility. Moreover, there was a an air of energy and can-do spirit in the home and in the rest of the "Kansas City Startup Village". I recommend Ben's Home4Hackers.
Loved the stay at the hacker house. Met some really smart, wonderful people. Ben is great host. Will definitely stay there when I am back in KC. Location was very convenient.
