CONNECT

Daniel Hoffer
CEO

Couchsurfing creates inspiring, engaging, and illuminating cross-cultural experiences by connecting travelers with locals in countries around the world. An international network spanning more than 230 countries, Couchsurfing envisions a world where everyone can explore and create meaningful connections with the people and places they encounter.

The organization addresses a fundamental human need—to connect with and understand other people and the surrounding world. Through the Couchsurfing platform, travelers can stay with local hosts for free and meet other travelers, or rediscover their own city, at local Couchsurfing events.

By bringing together people from many different cultures, Couchsurfing has built a passionate and dedicated global community.
