CouchSurfing is a worldwide network that connects travelers and the inhabitants of the places they visit.

CouchSurfing is an international network that revolves around hospitality. Travelers get to know the inhabitants of the places they visit on the Internet. In this way, for instance, people from Brussels can welcome tourists from around the world.


CouchSurfing members can:

  • ask other members for a stay
  • indicate whether they have a place to stay that is available for other people (not required)
  • meet people in places where they do not know anybody

The stay will not necessarily take place on a couch. All types of accommodation are possible: bed, tent, mat on the floor,...


Members have to register on the website of CouchSurfing. This registration is free. Guests and hosts do not pay each other. After a stay, the couchsurfers can add one another as a friend and leave references.
