Hotels and rentable housing

The locations listed below will allow temporary access to an unowned bed in exchange for caps.

Incidental housing

The houses below are not technically owned or paid for but the Sole Survivor can still shelter in these locations:

  • Combat Zone: After killing all of the raiders in the Combat Zone and gaining Cait as a companion, the raiders will no longer respawn, allowing the Sole Survivor to use the Combat Zone as player character housing. It is unconfirmed whether the containers in the Combat Zone are safe or not.
  • Diamond City wall room: With a power armor jetpack or careful use of Jet, the Sole Survivor can find a secret room on top of the exterior wall of Diamond City, down the right alley from the main gate. The room contains a power armor station and an unowned bed. It is unconfirmed whether the containers are safe but it is confirmed that the power armor station is safe to store items in. This location is not practical due to the difficulty in accessing it.
  • Kellogg's house: After gaining access to Kellogg's house, it can be used for storage and a sleeping location. The location does not reset and all containers are safe. The beds in the house are also free to use.
  • Vault 111: The vault can be used as player character housing because the containers do not reset. It is useful due to its proximity to the settlement of Sanctuary Hills.
  • Railroad HQ: This location can be used after joining the Railroad. The HQ has all the workbenches and is inhabited by a doctor and a merchant.
  • The Castle tunnels: After completing Old Guns, the tunnels underneath the Castle can be used as a base because it does not reset.
