What is couchsurfing?

“Hello! Hello and welcome to the CouchSurfing.org community! CouchSurfing offers you, via our website and regional events and activities, the opportunity to intimately encounter the world. Through meaningful connections with locals, Couchsurfing seeks to promote self-awareness and understanding of others. Being a CouchSurfer means you are part of an international community of travelers who recognize similarities and appreciate differences in all peoples. CouchSurfing is as more than just a “travel service” — it is a venue for grassroots cultural and ideological exchange by ordinary open-minded people, even if you do not have a couch to offer.

 

One last note: You don’t need a couch to join! As long as you anticipate sharing your couch sometime in your lifetime, or have already shared it, you’re 100% welcome here! Cheers!”

Que es couchsurging?

CouchSurfing es un servicio de hospitalidad en línea. Al registrarse los miembros pueden localizar contactos en los lugares donde viajen y quedarse en sus ‘sofás’, así como también pueden hospedar a viajeros de cualquier parte del mundo. A comienzos de 2009 ha alcanzado el millón de miembros en todo el mundo, que ofrecen alojamiento gratis y ayuda durante los viajes.

CouchSurfing tiene diferentes mecanismos de seguridad. Uno donde los miembros pueden escribir un comentario de otro miembro una vez que se hayan conocido; el otro es un sistema opcional de verificación por tarjeta de crédito, en donde el miembro dona una cantidad simbólica al proyecto, y a su vez se comprueba, a través de la tarjeta, que su domicilio y su lugar de residencia coinciden con los que ha facilitado al inscribirse.

La participación es libre y gratuita.
