The space

One room available in the Homes for Hackers house fully wired with (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) 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 (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Fiber. We typically experience upload & download speeds of 800-900 Mbps over Ethernet and 150 Mbps over WiFi. One block from the (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Fiber Space.

Click on the Street View tab above to see a 3D tour inside the hacker house using (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps Street View.

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. Find out more at HomesForHackerscom & kcstartupvillageorg.

Plenty of desk space around the house to work, with whiteboards in common 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.

Interaction with guests

I am always available to answer questions about the area and will generally make a good effort to accommodate requests as needed.

Other things to note

The bed in the airbnb room is a twin bed with a twin mattress. Some guests have expressed surprise at how small the bed is so I thought I'd mention it here to reduce surprises. (All the rooms in the house are small and most cannot realistically accommodate larger beds than a twin.)

Best Value I found in KC!

The bathroom and kitchen were never clean and mold grew inside the refrigerator. Someone in the house kept stealing my food over the 2 months I stayed here. The person responsible for cleaning often left a mess himself. Cameras should be put into the kitchen so there's accountability. The location was great and the price was cheap but things have definitely gone downhill since the reviews from last year. I also never got a lock on my door like the place originally promised.

The house is AWESOME. I'm a geek and it definitely felt like home. It reminded me of living in the dorm at college. Brandon was great and helpful. I would definitely stay there again, if for no other reason to brainstorm ideas with the other guests.

This home is fun, made for open minded travelers that need to safe a few bucks, other people come in and out but no safety or property issues. Walk around the neighborhood, between the cute small homes, bars and businesses around you will find interesting sights. Thanks again!
