Overall Guest Satisfaction
Check In
  • Maison partagée avec chambre commune. Propre et calme. Respectueux. Belle cuisine. Proche commodités et transports . A 20 du centre ville en train. Cependant inadapté en couple. Bien pour un voyageur seul.

  • Pros:
    Jocelyn is hospitable. Room is clean. I arrived very late in the evening but she is very patient. Close to subway station.

    No wifi in the backroom. 6 beds in the room.

  • Overall good. Open door. Very friendly. Everyone shared food.
    Small complaints--Jocelyn did not give simple directions from the Bart station. This would have saved me some aggravation( leave by west exit -- just 2 1/2 blocks).
    Not enough outlets in the bedroom --I couldn't keep my phone charging at night, next to me for the alarm

  • Jocelyn was a great host! She made some awesome soup that tasted so good. I'll be coming back if I ever need to stay here again. Thanks again Jocelyn!

  • Super chill place to stay. Great for anyone who is doing a short few month gig or just needs a bed for a quick in person interview. Everyone in this house stays classy and professional. I would definitely recommend this house to anyone who is open to finding new tech related friends. Actually, I already have recommended it to many.

  • Great. close to BART (walking distance) and two stations from SFO. I managed to get some sleep and place was clean. Can consider short and long term stay if you are travelling around SF and beyond.

  • Had a great time staying at her place! Beds were comfortable, she had just bought a new mattress when I got there. Linens and everything are clean.
    Has everything you need, kitchen, bathroom, living room, washer/dryer, towels, Wifi. It's like staying in your own place. Very homey. BART station is very close, within walking distance.
    She was also able to give me a lift to the airport.
    This place was a bargain and I would stay here any time I was in the bay area again. Highly recommend! and seriously a much better alternative to an overly priced somewhat isolating hotel room.

  • I arrived at the house at almost 6 am. Jocelyn was very gracious, even though I, apparently suffering from a sleep hangover from the trip, rung the doorbell instead of texting her I was there. I was only there for one full night and was gone 90% of the time, so I didn't get to see her after that. The others I met in the house were courteous and non-intrusive. My room was neat and my roommate was very considerate. Also, the house is literally a 10 minute walk to the Caltrain/BART station. All and all, I would definitely stay there again.

    May 2013
  • As my first stay using Airbnb I was pleasantly surprised at the friendliness of the house. There was good conversation and good food.
