Our house layout is highly conducive to all work/sleep habits, whether you are a night owl or work a 9-5! However we have strict rules about quiet hours and cleaning up after using the kitchen. Lets keep it comfortable for everyone.
A pleasant stay at a prime location, a short walk from the Millbrae CalTrain and BART. Jocelyn is a friendly host, and everyone staying there was respectful of each other. Staying here was a great way to spend a month while working more closely with my company, and all the while I got to meet some interesting people. Highly recommended!
It's really a good place to stay with. Safe, quite and convinient-the house is only like 5min's walk to the bart&caltrain station. I would strongly recommende staying here.
Safe neighborhood, pleasant home and hostess
Beds are wood, so they don't make creaking sounds like many metal builds do. Other guests were courteous to make sure it was quite at night. Would recommend.
A+ 5/5 stars, highly recommended :) Really enjoyed my stay at the house and Jocelyn was an awesome host. Very helpful especially with directions and public transit. If I could stay anywhere in SF/Bay Area again, it'd definitely be this spot! Close to Mountain View and the city as well; makes it the perfect commute. BART station literally just a few blocks away and the area is surrounded with lots of tasty restaurants and shopping areas. Beautiful location and comforting host. Hacker folks and the startup atmosphere can be found here as well :). Best environment to put yourself in if you're an entrepreneur. Thanks!
