Best thing for solo travelers

I’ve travelled the world using Couchsurfing and met some amazing people! I’ve only stayed with people who have at least a few references, it’s always been safe, fun and unique! It’s great to stay with a local person while travelling abroad to experience the local life and culture. I also love to host people in my home, it’s like travelling without leaving your town. The people on CS are outgoing and have some cool stories, boring people aren’t adventurous enough to do this kind of thing. The app is easy to use and functions well. If you’re new to CS, I recommend spending some time filling out the profile, adding photos and maybe getting some of your friends who are already on CS to write you references. Those will appear as ‘personal’ references and are a good start. Then go ahead and start travelling/ hosting and have fun!

Discover a world of social experience.

Stumbled across this app by chance. I was looking for a place to stay in New York prior to my trip and I wondered if such a thing existed as a couch surfing app - turns out yes there did exist such an app - and I've been hooked ever since. This is such a cool way to meet the comers and goers of my local city, from all across the world. I've already hosted a group of Greek girls and we had the funnest week hanging out and I've got more guests to come! I can't recommend this app enough for people who love new social experiences, learning about new cultures and meeting complete strangers and becoming good friends by the time they leave.

So far so good

The people I’ve met using this app are very interesting and when used effectively, the app is a great way to effectively socialise with travellers and hosts at home and abroad. There are some dodgy people, as with every app, but they are easily spotted with common sense (I.e.: they have no pictures/ no pictures with their face in them and are asking to hangout). Great way to make different friends as experiences stemmed from this app will illustrate that it is not solely about saving money on accommodation. A shortfall of the app itself is the interface. It works but it could be tidier. You are likely to need to switch to other, arguably more advanced, apps for prolonged communication.
