Frequently Asked


Pricing & Commitment

How long do people stay?

We’ve had people travel with us for a year and we have other people that come for several months, then go on their own for a bit, then come back to join us for several more months. Other people just come for one trip at a time before figuring out their next trip to join.

Our recommendation is to come for the entirety of a trip. Otherwise, it can feel like you’ve left the family party halfway through when there is so many more exciting things to come.

We’ve worked out our pricing structure to accommodate this flexibility. The longer you stay, the cheaper the monthly rate is. That being said, if you’re only able to come for smaller chunks of time, we do have certain start and stop dates every two weeks from the beginning to the end of the trip. Also, 75% of our alumni have joined us on more than 1 trip, so don’t be surprised if once you join, you don’t want to stop.

How far in advance should I pay for my trip?

Generally 2 months in advance. We run out of spots for trips and want to make sure you get a spot before they are all gone!

What’s the refund policy?

Once you have paid, we start making plans for you to join us, which includes making payments for housing and coworking spots that we pay in advance, so we are not able to provide a full refund.

How much does a Hacker Paradise trip cost?

Is Hacker Paradise tax deductible?
