How to Get Krobus as Housemate in Stardew Valley

Stardew Valley’s new 1.4 update has brought with a new endearing character known as Krobus. If your character is single, you can now make Krobus your roommate. There are a few steps to doing this and this guide will show you how to Get Krobus as Housemate in Stardew Valley.

How to Get Krobus as Housemate in Stardew Valley

You will find Krobus in the Sewer that you access with the Rusty Key that Gunther gives you. You get the key after you donate 60 artifacts. This Sewer can be entered from the grate in Cindersnap Forest or the manhole in town. You will have to do a few things before you can get him as your roommate.

Raise Your Friendship with Krobus
If you’re single, you’re eligible for making Krobus a potential roommate candidate. The way to this is to win over his friendship.

You need to raise your relationship to 10 Hearts and this can be done by getting him items that he loves. We’ve listed them below:

  • Diamond
  • Iridium Bar
  • Pumpkin
  • Void Egg
  • Void Mayonnaise
  • Wild Horseradish

Get A Larger House
Needless to say, you can’t have a roommate if your house only suits one person. You need to upgrade to a larger house for two.

You can purchase this house upgrade from Robin and it consists of 10,000g, as well as 450x Wood.


Now that you’ve reached max Heart level with Krobus and your house has room for you both, we come to the final step.

Asking Krobus To Move In
In order to ask Krobus to be your roommate, you will need a special item known as the Void Ghost Pendant so that you can give it to Krobus.

You can purchase it from the Desert trader for 200 Void Essence. He will only sell it to you if you’ve fulfilled the first part of the criteria and maxed out your friendship with Krobus.

Once you’ve purchased it, present it to Krobus and ask him to move in with you. He eventually will and will get his own room like a spouse would. It resembles the Sewer recreated.

You will find Krobus hanging around here during the night time.

If you go back to the Sewer, you will find a chest filled with Krobus inventory and a note. You can come here to purchase these at any time
