What is CouchSurfing?
Imagine having an interesting friend wherever you go — whether that’s 2,000 miles away, or right in your hometown.
With millions of members in over 230 countries and territories around the world, CouchSurfing is blazing the trail towards a better, friendlier world where people who are different from one another can find their similarities. We are a community, and we are a movement. If you believe that all types of people can share fun, trust, and friendship, then you belong here.
How does CouchSurfing work?
When you join CouchSurfing, you tap into our network of welcoming people worldwide. You can share your hospitality and experience your city through new eyes by offering travelers a place to stay on their journey. You can bypass the typical hotel experience by staying at the home of a local and learning about their culture. You can join cool and interesting people for anything from a bike ride to a party using CouchSurfing Activities. And you can meet up with new people, whether at home or while traveling, for inspiring experiences and new friendships.
How committed is CouchSurfing to intercultural understanding?
Very. In fact, our goal is nothing less than changing the world. That’s why we’re proud to be certified as a B Corporation – B is for benefit. This is a new segment of the economy dedicated to creating good. As a B Corporation, we are legally responsible for advancing our vision of a better world. No matter how our organization grows or changes over time, our mission will always be our priority. You can learn more about B Corporations, and see how their independent auditors rate our social responsibility, on their website.
