What’s next on Couchsurfing?

We made major changes to Couchsurfing this month. As a small team with limited resources, we prioritized bringing you the service’s most important features in rebuilt form.

We launched the new platform without having replicated all of the features of the old one. But we’re working on adding new settings and tools over time. Some of the elements we’re continuing to develop include:

  • Support for additional languages (including Russian and German) and improved translations

  • New inbox filters

  • Saved message templates

  • Guest instructions (from hosts)

  • Bookmarked profiles (the Couchsurfers you want to remember)

  • Friends in common with another Couchsurfer

  • Batch event editing and series management
  • Adding Events to an existing series

  • Group photo uploading and editing

  • Group moderation features

  • Keyword search for posts on Local Discussions (formerly known as Place Pages)

  • Related local groups on Local Discussions

  • Map-based search for hosts and events

Please continue to make suggestions. Your feedback helps us prioritize what to build first – after all, we’re building it for you!
