About Me

The place is awesome, we are a community legal squat place with lots of artists in Schaerbeek. Not the most conventional place, bewared!
------------------------------------------------------

Quentin and Javier are friends from childhoud town and used to share student flat in Brussels with Xavier. We enjoyed a lot hosting people from all over the world and now we finish studying and keep the same profile for both of us.

We both play music, we like laughing, being spontaneous and meeting new people.

We try to travel as much as we can, adventurously, like hitchhiking, trekking, and doing crazy things.

PHILOSOPHY

Try to laugh and be happy! That s the better thing you can do in life!!

Don't do to others what you wouldn't like they do to you.

Be humble, don't be sure you know.

You never stop learning.

If you are able of laughing about yourself, you're on right track.

You are not what you think. What you think, you are...

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

HOW I PARTICIPATE IN COUCHSURFING

Meeting lots of people from all over the world and helping people who love adventure to find a couch.

Showing authentic and underground places to hosts when i have time.

Spreading good vibes and cooking good meals to guest and hosts.

Trying to be real, and to be better everyday.

COUCHSURFING EXPERIENCE

Hosting is like being in holiday at home! Surfing is sometimes like being home while travelling! So sweet!

We both have hosted many backpackers we met in the street before knowing CS: so it was already in DNA!

So we had a wonderful 2 or 3 years hosting experience where we met lots of interesting surfers, got hips of cool parties and dinners with them and shared sometimes kindof best moments ever!
