Hello Vbandhu

We does one get information, about the host families?
If u post this in the Asia section, I think u would get more responses.

I found some information about couchsurfing which seems similar. If anyone wants that e-mail I can send that out...but I also would love to stay with host families as this tends to be more single people from what I can tell.

I am unsure of what place vbandhu may be referring to for a site, but you can join for free on the following sites and search for hosts (sometimes families, sometimes, single people and sometimes a married couple, all around the world not just India).

http://www.hospitalityclub.org (one with most members)
http://www.couchsurfing.com
http://www.globalfreeloaders.com (not as useful as the other two)

I've had success on hospitalityclub and also on couchsurfing. I stayed with a family in Dubai which was a very interesting experience and they were really really nice people. I also stayed with a couple when I was at Iceland who were also very nice. That was also interesting but those people also were hosting other international travellers at the same time, so not only did I meet the lovely couple, but also meant other nice people. Just search on the sites and look at how many members in the house, obviously if it is 1 then they are single and living by themself. If it is 4 then it will either be a family or possibly it may be a shared flat which they'll let you sleep on the floor.
