Support Couchsurfing!


First, we would like to say thank you for being a part of the Couchsurfing Community! 

For over 14 years, the Couchsurfing community has been available to anyone who wants to meet new people, see new places and gain a greater perspective on their world. Our community – your community – unites people in real life to celebrate their shared human experience. Couchsurfing members spend time getting to know one another through the places they love and the lives they live, fully embracing their differences. True, global acceptance and understanding – especially of people unlike ourselves – cannot happen without the type of in-person encounters that come from participating in the Couchsurfing community.

As of May 14, 2020, we are asking for member contributions, to keep Couchsurfing alive.

This member contribution is required to access the Couchsurfing website and mobile applications. Your member contributions will be used to support Couchsurfing through the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond, and to continue keeping this community safe.
