but definetly signing up on the new site.
It's not the only one out there. www.hospitalityclub.org Is actually bigger, although i don't like it anywhere near as much, whilst the likes of Servas and Globalfreeloaders.com also exist.
Are you serious?!?! I get loads of requests all the time, and I live only like one hour away from you!!!
Only an hour, sure, but Lund is somewhere people have heard of and want to visit, whereas Kristianstad isn't. Simple as that, really. Actually, I got my first request only a couple of days before It died, from 3 Swedish guys cycling to the continent, but it then crashed and I don't have a house anyway...
I'm gonna send you a request as soon as it all works again
Theres a guy in Borås I have an agreement with. He's the same as me, so we're going request to visit each other (and probably even do it) just for the heck of it!
but then again, maybe the lack of requests doesn't really matter regarding the lack of a home...
There is that. And on that note, if you happen to know anybody up this part of Skane who might be looking for a flat mate, or leaving and their place is becoming available, can you let me know?! Am going to be hoping between half a dozen colleagues, my boss and couple of other friends until i find somewhere, and there's a big lack available, despite the students all leaving. Cheers!
Long live couchsurfing
Whoohooooooo....yippieeeeee!!! Even though I know there is only ONE travel related site...
Have no fear, www.globalfreeloaders.com is just as good if not easier to use.
Yup, Fantastically, Version 2 should be live in about 10days time. As a serial user (but sadly, never host because i live somewhere obscure and never eve have had a request), it*s great news that it will be back!
Couchsurfing is dead. Long live couchsurfing
Actually, it is already recucitated!!!! read
on how they did it!
As a new user, my account was lost, so I have to rebuild it. But I'll do it with pleasure! Sure going to use the great concept!
So... I guess everything is allright then! I was lucky, my profile was perfectly intact. Go, couchsurfing, go!!!
This is funny....CNN has JUST heard about this...it was posted two hours ago... They are a tad slow....
That is slow indeed... My god it's already up and running, and everyone seems more active than ever, I get loads of requests all the time now! Unfortunatelly, most people want to come during the first two weeks in August, when I'm already busy with visiting family...
[Have no fear, www.globalfreeloaders.com is just as good if not easier to use.]
globalfreeloaders just does not compare with couchsurfing.com. Freeloaders does not display any information about the person wanting to stay with you, no photographs or other relevant data. Hospitalityclub may be bigger but the site is again not a patch on couchsurfing. I am a member of all three sites but couchsurfing is by far the best. Was really missing it the few days it was not operational.

I agree. I'm also a member of all 3, and whilst i understand whilst freeloaders works the way it does, I prefer to know a least a bit about the people I may be considering staying with/letting into my house. Especially when there are a number of peopl ein teh same area who are possibilities. HC is bigger, and I have used it a few times in places where CS has no (or few) members, and it has worked well, but i just don't like the feel/look as much as CS, whilst it also (and i know this will sound strange, but it is a personal view) seems alot more like an almost semi closed cult - and dating agency in places - than CS.
