What Our Guests Are Working On

What Our Former Guests Are Saying

"If you are a lover of technology and will be staying in Seattle, chose the IO (aka Hacker) House! For the past month, I have been living with the most brilliant minds while we share stories over dinner, meet weekly about interesting topics and socialize through similar interests. The house location is very convenient, which made it easy for me walk or bus to my new life each day. Plus, the house captain, Matthew, was friendly and real easy-going. I highly recommend the IO House."

"I have been staying at the Io "Hacker" House for the last three months and have thoroughly enjoyed interacting with the fellow hackers, with Matthew (operations), and with Andrew (host). Matthew, a fellow New Yorker, has been a total riot to speak with! I applaud their efforts to cultivate a hacker community. We have been interviewed for television and online media, a game company meets weekly upstairs, we've shared some meals, and I gave the first Dinner/Demo presentation recently -- all good signs for the beginning of something important, exciting, and relevant for Seattle..."

"The IO house was great during my short visit to Seattle. The location is excellent and there are plenty of workspaces around the house so you can always find a quiet place to work on your projects."

author Gregory M. Designer

"Great people. Ideal neighborhood. Overall great experience. Staying at the Hacker House was perfect for my 3-month stay while in Seattle for projects, giving me a great opportunity to meet some new people who shared similar interests as well as experience all that Capitol Hill has to offer. The place was clean and well-managed, and even with 5-7 other people staying there, was surprisingly private. I had a really good time, would absolutely stay there again and would definitely recommend to anyone looking for short-term housing."

author Nick D. Project Manager

"I had a fantastic time at the Hacker House during my two month stay. The people there were all very friendly and were from a variety of interesting backgrounds (Programmers, entrepreneurs, engineers, and even a graduate molecular biology student)."

author Davin K. Developer
