This is all on the harbinger imperial faction.
Had this happen to me as well, I think it might be related to the filter. Everything disappeared for me except for the HK stuff. Quitting the game and resuming fixed it, for what it's worth.

Other people's companions are showing up in my house. Please banish these uninvited guests. Especially because most of them like to show up without clothes. This isn't the Manaan brothel.

Maybe you should just leave it and consider it a "feature". I dress up the male companions that I include in my stronghold for decoration purposes for "pool party" attire anyway...

Ebon Hawk - Imperial Faction
Noted bugs:
1. Companions show up.
2. Cannot get onto roof due to invisible wall.
3. Cannot put sub on ceiling. I like having it on my Tatooine stronghold over a Jedi Fountain, but I really want see what it looks like here.
4. When logging out, I am in an "Unsafe Area"
5. Asymmetric hook layouts.
6. Cannot see my ship except from a lame angle.
7. I would like to see the trophies from FPs increased by 2 for a total of 12. As it was previously, we had enough for two per stronghold.

I like the idea to replay a SH video. It's fun to watch when fully decorated and I don't want to make a new character.

The intro scene we see first time we visit a SH with an alt is showing every time I go to the Manaan SH. Not sure if this is meant to be like that, but compared to all other SH it looks like a bug. Someone else I know has never seen the intro at all.

Devs, y'all gave us an Emergency Escape Submarine (Ceiling) and an Underwater Observatory.
But then you put a Generator Ceiling Light over the hatch that goes down into the ocean, instead of a hook.
So our Emergency Escape Submarine deco can't look like it lowers the sub into the water.
Dudes, that just makes me sad.
Not only that, but the walls are already decorated with ventilation fans in the main room. Anything put on top of that looks really bad.

Ebon Hawk, Republic side. My roommate also noticed a lot of naked companions in her Tatooine stronghold (and I get it, it's really hot, but Guss please).

A few more things:
  • The stronghold isn't considered a rest zone ("unsafe area" warning when logging out, no "you have entered a rest zone" on load).
  • My main character doesn't have Blizz yet, but he wasn't consistently a holo (and was missing his nameplate) when she was running around. Not sure if this applies to other companions since Doc seemed fine.
  • A lot of hooks that seem like they should be centered (or at least consistently off-center) are not. This was particularly obvious when I was trying to place benches in the medium narrow hooks along the entryway's walls, but a lot of hook placements seemed like they had drifted 1-3 ticks over. Decorations that I am really sure were set to 20 on the X or Y axis keep drifting to 19 as well.
  • Were the Felusia Stato and master datacron display limits meant to be increased to a maximum of 6? We used to have enough for one per stronghold but the maximum is still set to 4 each.
  • As others have mentioned, the intro video plays every time, but I like it! It's nice to see my stronghold improve as I work on it and the views really are fantastic.

Overall, I really love it! Thanks for making it happen.

I am now having the exact same issue. Clicking on hooks won't bring up the interface half the time, and the other half it won't show any decorations available for that hook, even with all the filters set to 'All' and nothing in the search window. Decorations I put down cannot be moved or removed again short of changing the hook layout when possible; clicking on the occupied hook brings up nothing, no preview window of the deco or button to remove it.

Did ANYONE at EAWare QA this thing before it went live? It's the first stronghold in two years, you'd think that would be enough time to test it out given how tiny the usable space is...

I am also constantly seeing chorus lines of naked companions every time I log into the stronghold. Ebon Hawk server, tested on both Republic and Empire-side.

1. Apparently random, often naked, NPCs showing up on Manaan confirmed on Begeran, but this has been happening throughout 5.2. Most often it's the sound of someone leaving their stronghold (or entering?), so as many have already pointed out, it's probably an instance issue.

2. It can become impossible to remove an item from a hook. There are two ways that this can happen: a.) The hook becomes unclickable or b.) The hook is clickable, but the usual interface doesn't show up that would allow you to pick up the item. In the latter case, you have to type something in the search field, clear it, and click on the hook again. This is a clumsy workaround and it doesn't always work.

3. Clearing an entire room will clear more than the room itself. Obviously, I'm not going to test the limit of this bug.

---

As an aside, my reaction to the new stronghold is mixed. It's a setting where environmental decos (mostly just plants and weird mushrooms) can work wonders. However, I don't really find the "fully decorated" = "higher conquest bonus" very inspiring. Never have. Most people just stuff their rooms full of crap to get the increased bonus and then never go back. I have all my strongholds purchased and fully decorated (including Manaan) but I never visit them (and I don't see myself going back to it). I only go to one for purely pragmatic reasons. The reason is this:

1. There is an incentive to stuff every room full of crap. You'll perhaps start with something very interesting in mind, say, something minimalist with lots of plants, but the desire to reach that 100% mark is overriding.

2. And because most of the interesting items require that you pay into the CM, or interminably eyeball the GTN, many players will regard this as yet another cash grab and it decentivizes them giving a ****.

3. The bugs are always, always a poor reflection of your company's reputation. We never, ever expect things to go smoothly. We never expect things to improve. Please raise the bar a bit.

4. The customizable stronghold could be very compelling if the conquest bonus was tied to the purchase of the rooms, not to a fully cluttered room full of NPCs, beside an unfinished bedroom crammed full of gathering containers. Let players make these things into as much of a work of art that the system will allow. Let them take their time.

I noticed the drifting too ... but in EVERY Stronghold - didn't happen before 5.2.2
