5 beginners tips for staying at someone’s house

Here are five beginners tips when staying at someone’s house.

  1. Research the neighbourhood and learn more about your host on the website, rough ratings and social media accounts…
  2. … And make sure to have a detailed profile yourself.
  3. Be clear with your expectations – and ask about any house rules.
  4. Show respect, be on time and think of the stay as being at a friend’s house.
  5. Not quite ready, but want to meet people? Start by catching up with locals for coffee or city walks through networks like Couchsurfing.
