Wow. So, this room in SoMa just popped up on Craigslist in a "co-ed community house" which, if I had to guess, has a A LOT of turnover. Why do I say that? Because the room is barely big enough for a twin bed, and because it is a house of 60 people. 60. Most of them tech workers. That's six zero. 60.

All 60 apparently share the same kitchen? Well, the ad is a little vague on that point, referring to a "community" of 60 and a "very large house," but they may not all live under this one roof. A group photo only shows about 35 (mostly white) people in their 20s, and below you can see the list of "Facebook one-lines" of their occupations, which is not 60 entries long.

This is the kitchen:


Given that they're all, presumably, paying about the same amount of money ($1500) for about the same amount of space, once can assume that they're all brand new to the city. And they will hopefully find better homes than this soon.

(See also our pieces on The Negev and Campus organizations for similarly communal, dorm-like housing options that are cropping up everywhere, catering to techie newcomers.)

Below, the current residents' "Facebook one-lines":
