Where do I begin?

Contribute to the community

Couchsurfing works because hosts generously open up their homes to like-minded travelers. Join the community of hosts making the world a better place, one couch at a time.

Meet new people

Strangers are just friends you haven't met yet. 
By welcoming new friends into your home you open the door to new languages, cultures and perspectives.

Share your city

"Couchsurfing gave me another image of foreigners, it made me more tolerant and taught me that sharing is better than possessing!"
Syril, a host in Switzerland
"After that first trip to East Asia, I wanted to give back to the community. At the same time, I could bring the world to me until I could travel again"

Steven, a host in Japan

"We had no money to travel the world with our  kids, and decided to let the world come to us. We opened our house, our hearts, and our lives to strangers. A lot of them became friends for life!"

Lieke, Peter and Kids

"I get so much out of it – meeting new people, learning about other walks of life, and a steady stream of fascinating stories over a pint or two at the local pub."

 Tom, a host in San Francisco
