'''If you've never been to the space before''', simply press the door bell on the right of the gate labeled "Noisebridge" with tiny text. If there's someone in the space who feels like giving a tour (most of the time, except for late at night and early morning) they may buzz you in.

Our door can be a little hidden, we're next to Mi Ranchito Produce Market. Ring the Noisebridge doorbell and wait a few minutes, someone will probably buzz you in. If no one answers, you can ring again after a bit but please be patient - someone has to get up from hacking to answer the door.
