Couchsurfing is a global network of over 18 million travelers, adventure seekers and lifelong learners in millions of cities in over 180,000 countries.

Our free service connects travelers around the world who share experiences ranging from hosting one another in their homes to sharing drinks and stories at a CS event, to becoming close friends and travel companions.

Hotels and tour companies can give you a bed or a guide, but it is our belief that meeting locals is what will make your trip truly memorable and meaningful.

We’d love to tell you more about our core beliefs and the Couchsurfing mission and invite you to get in touch!
