Golden age of traveling

This absolutely the golden age of traveling, apps has taken control meeting new people can’t get any better, it’s because I appreciate it this app personally am writing this review from my perspective knowledge, so for the amazing team who stand behind this wonderful app please don’t take anything personally, I can see the wonderful features you have managed to talk yet as important coding is the user experience is indeed what’s matter for most user, you need to consider that very much hire someone who can help with that bigger font bigger icon easy navigation why can’t the messages and the hangout messages be at the same place they all are messages less is always good, snapchat has proven this point and once they started adding more the quickly regained that point and fixed snapchat once again, I really appreciate the work the team has accomplished within the last few years, so thank you so much, don’t worry am not gonna end this review by requesting a job offer 😂, Cheers.

Awesome concept, needs some improvements

I looooove couchsurfing. It's changed my life and I'm so grateful for this app and what the connections it assists in creating. Howevvvveerrr... Technically some things need work. For example, sometimes I get notifications and sometimes I don't, making it difficult to correspond with surfers/hosts. Also, unless I accept/decline a couchsurfing request, I cannot send a message back to a person, even if the request has expired and I didn't have a chance to accept or decline.. I cannot send any messages at all!! Very stressful, as I would wish to reach out to some people I didn't have a chance to respond to in time. I also do not understand the point of paying for "verification," but luckily not being verified has not negatively impacted me yet. Also through the app the age range when looking for hosts is a very weird gap, it would be great to be able to put in ages yourself.
