4 bedrooms - 1 private room and 3 shared rooms

All utilities are included and the WIFI is fast!
Clean linens/bedding are provided + a fresh towel.
Why would someone say light cooking? Home prepped meals really warms up the house and it's encouraged.
Interaction with Guests
It's a house full of people & different schedules. So please use ear plugs if necessary. If you're a light sleeper or can't sleep on a single mattress, this may not be the right place for you.
We are a very communal/respectful group and strive to provide space for everyone to work and hangout. Remember that work, musical instruments and books take precedence over the television.

Respectful Housing for Women
Females in a separate room. If you'd like to stay in the girls' room, please check with me on availability before reserving. If you don't have a preference, then just make your reservation.
The Airbnb cleaning fee is to make sure you have a clean bed upon arrival and not to clean up after you. All spaces are shared, so please be mindful of picking up after yourself. If you're a longer term guest, remember to use one bath towel and wash it with your own load of laundry.

Vic is the best host ever!!
You’ll be amazed by his hospitality at any time.
I met him in person and he was super friendly, kind.
House is clean and quiet. I was blessed with housemates.
If you are entrepreneur or developer,I highly recommend to stay there, join strong hacker community.
I really enjoyed my stay at Vic's. He is very kind and helpful. The place is exactly the same you see in the listing. If you want to meet people in the tech world this is perfect. I would highly recommend Vic's place.
This summer I was in the Silicon Valley for three months for a summer internship. At first I only wanted to stay for one month in the hackerhome until I find something else, but this place turned out to be so awesome that I extended my stay for the entire time.
The place is great for meeting other people and international exchange. Also, Vic is a great host and really takes care of the people in the houses. If you like having people around you, I totally recommend staying here, Sunnyvale HackerHome ist the best!
I would highly recommend a stay at the HackerHome in Sunnyvale. You will meet very interesting people all the time and you will have a lot of fun. The area around the home provides everything what you need! Vic is an excellent host!
I lived in the brand new SoMa location and had a chance to stay with very interesting people: WWDC folks, intl. univ. students that are interns at startups, freelancers and some startup people. There is always someone taking care of the place, it's very quiet and clean (thanks to Rob and Jaye). I got to see Vic only once, but I know this is a person I can trust. Location is great - 10 minutes walk to Caltrain, 15 min walk to Bart and Metro, muni bus stops are very close. You enter into bedroom full of beds, which might scare you, but once you see the living space you'll not want to leave. They have 100/100 MBit internet!!!
