The space

About Io House:
This is a home for itinerant techies - entrepreneurs, coders, inventors, designers, and scientists. The idea is to interact with the other residents, and for you to leave with your strongest memories being of the people you met here.

This house is located in the heart of North Capitol Hill, at its closest point to South Lake Union. You've got the convenience of the restaurants and activity of Capitol Hill, and a full QFC supermarket two blocks away, while located an easy walk from TechStars (1.2 miles walk), CodeFellows, Amazon SLU, etc. It has a WalkScore of 95/100.

Bed: this listing is for a bunk bed (Lower bunk 1) in a shared room with three other people.

Common area includes: a living room on the main floor, a large converted attic designed as work space, a full kitchen, shared bathrooms, and a large basement suitable for bike/luggage storage.

We provide:
- High speed Internet
- Laundry on-site (detergent provided)
- Full kitchen with dishwasher
- A back yard with picnic bench
- Weekly professional housekeeping
- Bedding and towels

From the airport you can take light rail and either walk 1.4 miles or take one bus line.

There is a house captain on-site, so you'll be well taken care of. That being said, we expect you to keep your area and the kitchen clean, to wash your own clothers/towels, and to be considerate of the other residents.

This house is a little older and shows some wear, but we endeavor to keep it well-furnished (mostly IKEA), and reasonably clean and tidy.

Note about parking: there are three parking spaces (one garage space, one driveway space, and one street space blocking the driveway). The garage and driveway spaces cost $8/day. The street space is free but subject to neighborhood 2 hour daytime parking limit. Parking is very tight in this neighborhood. If you would like to use one of the two paid parking spaces, please ask when you make your reservation.

A great location with many great people. The house is clean and orderly, with a focus on guests being respectful to each other, while still providing a fun environment. Many guests (including myself) extend their stays because of the positive experience.

Great place! Plenty of food and drink within a mile or so from the house. Housemates were really friendly, they took me to a few meetups and showed me around the area. The house is fairly old, but everything worked great, and I didn't have any issues with bugs or dirt. Keep in mi…
