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.

Restored my faith that there's still hospitality out there. Brilliant community.


This isn't just an app, or a website. It's a fantastic community of hospitality and sharing. Wonderful and truly global. Going to a city? You may have over 30,000 hosts to ask. A small village, as many as 10 or 15. I was amazed by how many just in my local area were hosting. This is a great self moderated, regulated community. Write those reviews!

Change needed


LET US CLICK INTO PROFILES OF PEOPLE WHO LEFT REFERENCES FFS! How are we meant to check whether those people are real users instead of blank profiles? This is the most CRUCIAL change you need to bring back. Another thing is - why can't we check friend list of other users like we can on the web version? This is important too because some new CSers may not have reference but have some friends who already do couchsurfing - if we can see that it's more likely they are real people and more likely for us to host them!
