This is the second airbnb room in the Homes for Hackers program and is available much less frequently than the other dedicated airbnb room in the house. This room is usually unavailable because a tech startup entrepreneur in the program is using it. Since the other room is rented on Airbnb much more frequently, it has many more reviews available, where you can get a better idea of what a stay at the hacker house is like.

We've made full use of (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Fiber throughout the house for you to test out your latest app, startup idea or consumer hardware on a gigabit fiber-optic network. We 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 with the ethernet hard wired line and around 150 Mbps using the wifi access throughout the house. The hacker house is also located one block south of the (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Fiber Space, where different uses and installations of (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Fiber are showcased daily.
A 3D tour of the inside of the hacker house is also available if you search for the house with (SENSITIVE CONTENTS HIDDEN) Maps > Street View.
Excellent collaborative opportunity to bounce ideas off of other entrepreneurs and hackers that are also staying in the house.
