An all new Couchsurfing is coming next week

Big changes are coming to Couchsurfing. Next week we’ll be unveiling an entirely new website and updated iOS and Android apps – we have rebuilt our entire technical infrastructure from the ground up.

Couchsurfing’s services will be temporarily inaccessible next week while we switch over to the new system. You will not be able to access Couchsurfing’s site or mobile app during the migration, which could last up to 48 hours. Please plan accordingly. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause and will post specific outage times on the site, so check there for details.


Please also note that with this launch, there will be changes to Groups Privacy Settings. If you moderate or have posted in private groups, please read more about the changes here.

More detailed information about the rebuild and new system can be found these FAQs.

This project has been in the works for many months and is an essential step in bringing Couchsurfing into the future. Couchsurfing creates a more connected world, and we are inspired each day by the beauty that connection creates across the globe.

Thank you for being part of our journey, and allowing us to be part of yours. May we create a bright future for Couchsurfing together!
