Hello Blue people,

Hoping that someone with foresight, vision and authority will read this note. Use some caution since Dr. Grove has turned me down, and this proposal might not fly (even though it's a non-brainer). Avoid the head chopping block, perhaps support behind the scenes.
Silicon Valley needs a large urban "youth hostel". A hostel is affordable dormitory style accommodations (with some family rooms, about $20/night/member, clean, friendly, where travelers from around the world can meet and mingle and learn from each other.

Every major West Coast city except Oakland and San Jose have at least one HI (formerly AYH) affiliated hostel, many have several. There are over 4000 HI Hostels in more than 60 countries (only 100 in US, 22 in Calif.)

Now most young well-educated foreign travelers will travel along the coast, avoiding Silicon Valley since there's no urban hostel, only a couple of small ones in the nearby hills.

I envision a 200 bed hostel, downtown or near public transport, that will house not only international, but domestic, families, school and church groups,scouts, conventioneers, reunions, athletes and sport teams, company trainees, etc. for much less than the expensive SJ hotels.

Often hostels are at unique locations (ships, lighthouses, castles, ranches, surplus barracks).

An obsolete vacant wafer or semiconductor fab (with much equipment left intact) would fit in very well with SV. The hostel would be hi-tech with RFID access, lots of PCs and Internet access at most every bed, all kinds of video games and stuff overseas nerds and geeks would love.

A large "Intel Inside" sign atop the SV/SJ (or Santa Clara)HI-Hostel would be dirt cheap advertising. Once hostels are open, overnight fees cover all expenses and no further assistance is required. As A non-profit volunteer help (from people practicing their language skills) will reduce overnight fees and increase occupancy. Then a shuttle service can be provided to connect with other nearby hostels and offer factory and Fry's shopping tours.

I've contacted a fair number of potential investors. Sooner or later someone with vision will come forward and get this hostel under way. It's a no-brainer, since our guests are mostly young well-educated upward mobiles (there are no longer age restrictions at hostels). Much cheaper than a stadium!
