zerzhulzerzhul Registered User, Moderator mod
Post here if you are looking to share your room, or looking for a room to share. Please keep your posts up to date!


You get ONE post in this thread per UNIQUE room share situation. Do not re-post your offer/request. Re-posts will be deleted if not pre-approved by moderation staff.

If you need to modify your post and cannot edit it yourself (accounts below a certain participation threshold), PM me and I will make the edit for you. Not having permission to edit is not a valid excuse for re-posting.

If you *really* think you have a good reason to post for a second time, PM me first.


If you have a room and want to fill space, use this format:

Additional Notes:


I will occasionally cull posts from the thread that have been struck out or marked as no longer valid. I will try to do this as necessary, but there will not be a hard schedule for this purpose. This will mean that there should not be a wall of inactive posts to sift through in order to find active ones. Also it means that if someone had a post that was culled from early on, they can freely re-post it later if things went south. If you abuse this, your ability to post in this thread will be revoked entirely.

    Additional Notes/Requests: Second time owning the booking process. I myself have a lot of online feedback just from my eBay profile. There's been some interest so far, and I intend the room to be a space where folks can just pass out.

    Location: 3rd and Pike street. 3-4 blocks away from Convention Center main building, and 2 blocks away from Pike Market.
    Total Cost: $50 a night (as many nights needed, but people wanting to stay longer will most likely get picked).
    Date Arriving: Whenever
    Date Leaving: Whenever
    Number of spots available: 4-6 (depends on how comfortable everyone is with how many they want to squeeze in).
    Gender: I will make this as balanced as possible so everyone feels comfortable.
    Best Contact: ThoughtCloudArt@gmail.com (I don't check it very often, so don't be worried if I don't answer right away).

    About me stuff:
    - I've been working in the video game industry for about 10 years, consider myself very progressive, and generally like making new friends. I'm a Seattle local, so if you need touristy tips, or suggestions on where to go/eat, I'm your guy.
    - Here's a sort of feedback about me from Binary cupcakes from a few years ago. https://forums.penny-arcade.com/discussion/189397/airbnb-experiences-you-gotem-we-wantem

    About the place stuff:
    - For bed availability, there is 1 full sized futon, 2 queen sized airbeds, and floor space - there are no extra bedrooms and all airbeds and stuff will be set up in the living room.
    - Full kitchen with lots of cookware (ricecooker, pans that go from stove to oven, blender, etc)
    - Xbox one/PS4.
    - There is a portable AC unit.

    Important to keep in mind stuff:
    - It's cool if you cosplay, but be considerate of how much space you take up, and that if you use body paints/makeup, that it's not the kind that stains everything.
    - There's only one bathroom, so everyone is going to have to monitor their time and be cool about limiting themselves to 5-7 minutes max at a time (especially in the morning).
    - Keep in mind that in a shared group situation everyone's going to have their own schedules, some people might wake up early, or stay up later than others.

    About the group stuff
    - There isn't one yet, but if you're interested in joining shoot me a link to your facebook page, and I'll set up a messenger group for all of us to introduce ourselves.
    - If you've got rules, or things you're concerned about (allergies, smoking, bedtimes, etc) let me know.

    Additional Notes/Requests: Group of friends that have been going for the last 9 years. We play late night board games, socially drink in the room, and always have a good time. Most of us are in our late 20s and early 30s so please be considerate of your own behavior to ours, we usually stay up late and can be a little loud but not obnoxious. Everyone in the room is responsible and the room is usually stocked up with provisions(IE snacks, drinks, alcohol).

    Best Contact Method: RoughRaptors@Gmail.com

    Additional Notes/Requests:
    This post has been edited as plans have slightly changed and costs have been updated accordingly.

    There's two total beds I am in one right now and open to sharing as long as you're hygienic. A couple willing to share the second bed will be preferred over a single person. I'll accept a max of five people, but one would need to be on the floor so as long as that's cool, you can be the 5th! We'll be splitting the cost with however many we get, up to five people in the room total. Please don't be too loud late at night (past midnight-ish), or come back totally wasted off your ass and make us miserable, just be considerate, it's not a party room :-).

    Requiring a $50 deposit per person in advance to your spot being reserved via paypal to avoid any flakyness (sorry). I've been to PAX more times than I can count, have always room shared, and I've never had any problems in the past.

    ARRIVING: Wed Aug 30 (though I can book Wednesday separately if needed, prefer not to)
    LEAVING: Mom Sept 4 (but a Monday night overnight flight, so if possible to leave stuff room would appreciate)

    Spots Needed 1
    Gender: F

    Best contact: email sarabethwinters [at] gmail.com

    Additional Notes: Am visually impaired, so would prefer max 5 in room, 4 preferred if at all possible for mobility. I will be hosting a panel at PAX about cosplay robotics so expect a few robots in my luggage ;)
    I am VERY allergic to cannabis. I only bring this up because a former rooming was with someone who had doctor prescribed medical marijuana and I wasn't aware prior. I don't care what you do in your free time or if you need it, but I can't be near it or someone who recently smoked. Other than that, I've had FANTASTIC roommates through this board and made great friends.

    I don't drink often, but don't care about alcohol in room as long as I can sleep some part of the night.

    I am also something of a con mom, and will make sure you have food. :)

    Additional Notes/Requests: Hi! Knowing that cons cost shit-tons of money for people coming from out of town, I like to open my doors to con-goers in the spirit of couchsurfing. We have tickets for Friday through Sunday, and most likely attending Thursday night events (like the pubcrawl or boardgame night.)

    Allergies/scents/drugs: We have a cat. Weed OK, but no cigarettes. We sleep late and are pretty chill.
