This app offers more than just connecting hosts with surfers. Linking you up with other travellers nearby is so helpful if you are on your own. You’ll have opportunities to explore new and exciting places for the first time with others who are also experiencing them for the first time, and you’ll get to make a friend along the way too. If I get stuck for ideas, I just check nearby events other surfers have posted. This really is the lone traveller’s best friend.

I love couchsurfing

The whole concept is so beautiful and I love the app. Works very well. I'm so grateful because it allows me to search with lots of useful parameters and makes requesting easy. This fulfills my need for connection and community while I travel

Mostly great

The most annoying thing about this app is that it required push notifications and GPS to be set to “always” instead of “when using app” to be able to use the Hangout function. This uses way too much battery. It should be sufficient to not have notifications on, and only “when using app” to be able to use the hangout function.

Searching and messaging is all the same on the app as the web based version.
