A place for the curious and the courteous: a simple, cozy private room in a magical location. Kwan and I are your hosts, students of Cal, and aspiring mathematicians. Peruse my listing, read my reviews, and above all keep calm.

A friendly challenge to all: beat me in a game of chess and you may win a (sur)prize.

The space

Photos coming June 8....stay tuned.

Just 4 blocks from campus and minutes from downtown, a quick stroll in any direction from the house will be an adventure. Read my other reviews and check out my other listings. Message me any questions that pop up, I'll be happy to answer them.

I was looking for a cheap place to crash for one night, and Kush's place fit the bill. Kush and his friends/roommates were pleasant, friendly, and communicative. If you want a "crash with a friend-of-a-friend" experience for a good price, that's exactly what you'll get. If you are looking for something more private, secure, or plush, then look elsewhere.

Kush is a great host. He accept our demand which may bring inconvenience to him. Thanks for his patience and support during our days in Berkeley.

The location was good, check in and communication also. Nice house. Talking to Qwan was also funny. Nevertheless, I have to write that the linen was obviously already used. It wasn't too much of a problem since I had a sleeping bag, but the price for using a sleeping bag was way too high. I didn't expect much from a student apartment and I am also used to every sort of places, but sheets definitely have to be clean. An important thing to improve for the future! Thanks

The room was cozy as advertised. Kush was super nice and was able to accommodate an early check in on a statutory holiday. I had a great stay in Berkeley visiting friends near campus. I will certainly try to reserve again in the future.

Room in a large old house with UC students. Polite, friendly students living there. Very convenient.

Great budget option in a cozy student house in Berkeley. Kush and all the other guys in the house are super friendly and helpful. The room is small but big enough for two people. Location is walking distance from the BART. Overall I can recommend it!
