You are welcome to visit and stay at HBO, the Hackerfarm guest house to work on your projects if you’ve pre-arranged it with us. Otherwise, here is our policy on visitations:
We have a general Open House on the last weekend of the month where people can visit, meet, hang out, eat together, and check out what’s going on at hackerfarm. If you want to see what’s going on here, we highly recommend you visit during the Open House. Otherwise, we get quite a few visitation requests which can get disruptive to our project and work schedules. Visits outside of Open House are by prior appointment only.
Short Term Stays
Short term stays are by appointment and generally coincide with the Open House on the last weekend of the month. Exceptions are for people or groups with prior projects or collaborations with us or have been approved to visit outside of Open House beforehand.
You may apply for a longer stay if you are working on a project; residencies of up to three months can be accommodated. If you want to stay longer than three months, we’ll help you find a place to live.
There are no set fees at this time but we welcome your donations to help cover costs. For meals, please cater for yourself and pitch in for community bbqs, drinks and other shared food. If you lend a hand to chores and tasks, that would be appreciated.
How to Reserve
Mail, Skype, text, Facebook or otherwise get in touch with Akiba.
What to Bring
There is bedding for 3-4 people. In case of crowded nights, bringing a sleeping bag and bath towel would be useful. Bring your own toiletries.
