Did you know that there is a large global community of people who travel and use each-other’s couches and accommodation for free? Talk about budget accommodation! This beats it all, theoretically.


My only concern is who checks these people up before they are allowed to host strangers, or how do you, as a traveler, know who can be trusted and who cannot?

Obviously, the website (www.couchsurfing.org) specifies that this is no dating website, but how seriously do all users take this? It seems to have worked out well for over 1 million users and adventurers, but I saw no negative statistics. Who keeps track of those?
