Hooking up with locals to sleep in a boat in a canal in Amsterdam, have some beers in Australia, true Italian Pasta in Italy, Sushi in Japan or even at home? Sounds good?

That is what Hospitality Exchange Networks have to offer. These Networks help to bring travelers in contact with locals. Thousands of people around the world will meet you, show you their city, have a typical meal together, help you with you travel plans and even let you stay for free.

Bringing people from different cultures and social background together can reduce prejudices and intolerance by enhancing intercultural understanding. But above all, they will bring you fun, broaden your horizon and give you the chance to easily meet new interesting people everywhere.

There are several Hospitality Exchange Networks (or Home stay networks). They all have their goals and advantages. But how do you choose which Network is the right one for you?

The aim of this site is not to rank the Networks, but to help interested people finding their way through the world of Hospitality Exchange, by presenting the Networks, tips, tricks and experiences. For Hospitality Exchange Networks veterans, this site offers an independent platform to talk about experiences, futures & safety, ideas & beliefs... for a world of exchanged hospitality!

All networks are worth a visit, many friendly people will welcome you. You can't decide? Join them all...
