I´m a student from Austria with a big problem.

I was going to visit New York City from 1.Dec-9th.Jan. this year.
I booked the flight in July and was supposed to stay with a friend who lived there.
Now,unfortunately the person had to move away from NYC because of job problems.It´s pretty complicated.

Now I have the flight tickets and I can´t get the money back and I can´t take another flight back t shorten my stay(cause the one-way tickets cost around three times as much as a round trip ticket..).

I would need a hostfamily or SOMEbody to stay with.I could pay for it but not as much as for a hotel or a hostel.

Please, if you have ANY advice!Everything would be helpfull!!!!

Let me know as soon as possible!!!
I´m desperate and if I don´t find a solution soon I will have to not take the flight..

Hi Gudi!

Look through these two threads. They discuss "couch surfing" and some of the members have participated in the program.

The program can be found here: The CouchSurfing Project
