The Couchsurfing Mission
To us, the world is much smaller than people think. We value real-life experiences with strangers, who quickly become our friends. We believe that people who are different than us are good, trustworthy and inspiring. And every day we’re sharing our cultures, hospitality and adventures with each other – whether we’re on the road or in our hometowns.
A number of obstacles can inhibit people from feeling free to explore. These barriers include safety concerns, financial means, or simply a lack of information. CouchSurfing addresses and removes such barriers to exploration by providing tools and guidance for the explorer. Our online and mobile platforms connect people to one another, affordably, safely and easily.
We have over 5 Million active members in 96,000 cities around the world, and over 200 countries. We also have both iOS and Android applications with tons of new updates coming soon!

Life at Couchsurfing
We provide you with healthy lunch, dinner, and snacks. Friday happy hours. Caffeine on tap. Safe parking for bicycles. The latest technology that you require for doing your job at the office and on the road. And of course, comfy chairs and cozy couches. Top-of-the-line medical, dental, and vision. 100% company-sponsored for employees. 50% for spouses and dependents.
Because it takes real CouchSurfers to support our community, we give you extra time off to surf on members’ couches and experience CouchSurfing firsthand. Travel expenses are on us.
