For all the low budget students out there check out http://www.couchsurfing.com i have some student friends that use this website were they stay in stranger houses and it works out quite well for them without paying a dime!

I'm a big CS fan (and also use another similiar - and larger - one, hospitalityclub) and have used if quite allot. One had one slightly dodgy experience, and even that happened after the fact and not whilst i was there.

I've stayed with maybe 40odd hosts in maybe 15countries, and met another 40 or so people for a drink/to be shown around etc, and would highly recomend it.

If anybody has any specific questions/worries etc and wants to ask me, feel free to post here or send me a private PM and i'll do what I can.

I just wanted to start a thread about it!

As we are already gonna build our own house, I was thinking of having travellers visiting us...

If we can't go overseas, we can at least have some 'strangers' around *g*

Do I qualify as a stranger?

I guess my husband will look at the male applicants

... and I will only let the 'ugly' girls stay at our house...

jokes aside, let's talk about it in a few years time...

will u still qualify as a stranger then?

I assume there are a few people on Couch surfing who r from Austria. Why haven't u tried it yet?

or is it, because I'm from the beautiful south and it beats the rest of Austria? *g*

I wish all overseas tourists would be so keen on coming here....

it's always Vienna, Salburg, Innsbruck...

they don't know what theyr r missing out on
