Features

The app has a collection of approved hosts in amongst its larger community. A review system gives you background knowledge about hosts, which can be used to collect references. Once you’ve assessed the safety of your chosen couch, the platform lets you confirm your stay, which is always free. A number of events are also on offer from other users, and you needn’t cross your country’s borders to attend them. Why not become a tourist in your hometown? Use Couchsurfing on iOS, Android, Windows, and through Google Play. The app controls a self-policing community, which can be used to hunt for apartments and roommates on a more permanent basis, too.

Travelling to Suit Your Pocket

If jet-setting around the world has always been too expensive for your pocket, Couchsurfing is your doorway to global adventures. Socialise at your destination with travellers and get to know the culture first-hand from locals. Tourism has never been easier.
