Has anyone ever travelled using CouchSurfing.org?


I just read an article in the April 16th New Yorker about this unique method of travel, staying with people who register on the site, which has members all over the world (Bermuda, San Francisco, even Cedar Rapids, Iowa, and Turkey). Sounds like an intriguing way to travel, you are forbidden to pay for accomodations, except with a token gift apparently.

    Thanks! I'm hoping someone on HP with experience at CouchSurfers (or maybe friends who have used it, hint) will write a HUB about the experience. I recommend that articale in the New Yoker highly. The author took several trips using CS.

    True, but the article points out that most reviews and experiences reported are positive. The reporter says in the article, "How do you know Jack the Ripper isn't going to show up." Saftey on both sides would concern me.
