Please do NOT call the hostel about this event. We are using their space for the event and all the info is posted below - they do NOT have any info.
Those who attend the meetup can request to be added to our private facebook group so that you can connect with people who attended prior weeks and are still looking for rooms/roommates. Only those who attend in person will be added to the group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/560681231325623/
NOTE: This is a recurring event! The date changes on the meetup event invitation as it gets close to the event starting time, but the event is still happening and is NOT CANCELLED! Our friends at the Green Tortoise hostel have let us use their common space for this event. Be sure to bring a VALID ID (ie: NOT expired) or you will not be allowed to enter the building. You MUST also check in at 8:30PM SHARP out front of the building in order to attend - latecomers will be turned away. Also note: NO SOLICITORS! Keep your crappy over-priced, spammy, roommate apps to yourself.
Finding a roommate in SF is a royal pain in the ass. This event is a connection/networking event for people in SF looking for a roommate. Are you looking for someone to search for housing with who could potentially be a good roommate? Do you have an open room but are sick of trying to sort through missed facebook messages and comments all over the place - half of which are from randoms from another country who are trying to scam you?
There are so many housing scams on craigslist and facebook (yes, facebook!). Technology helps us all in many ways - however - it's also made it easier for scammers to take advantage of us and the housing crisis in SF. Plus room-hunters are too disorganized to search for a shared room with another person on their own so it's made it easier for "co-living spaces" to exist and be able to charge people upwards of $1000-$1600 for a shared room. Sometimes it might be worth trying out going back to the basics - what did people do before all the crappy modern day scammy roommate apps? They had to post listings for open rooms in laundromats. They had to talk to others until they met someone who had a friend-of-a-friend that had a room open. They had to connect with each other in person in order to organize roommate options. So maybe it's worth a shot trying these old-school methods out again in 2019.
Some come join us this Monday - maybe you'll find a new roommate. Or worse case, maybe you'll make a new friend.
