Why I’m on Couchsurfing

I'm just still here to stay in touch with friends. The whole CS-system is so broken now. I hardly recomend you to read the terms of use and wonder whether you want to give C$ the right to sell your data.

Unfortunately it's not what it used to be. Original it was made to made it easier to travel, meet different people from all over the world and connect people by hosting and surfing. CS hosts are no free hotels.
I recomment everyone to move to an alternative site.


I host and surf and some of my friends are hosts and surfers too.


I actively played Go ( for some years. Thats why I traveled 2 or 3 times per month to another city to participate in a tournament and sleeped on the floor at other go-players homes. During tounaments in Leipzig I hosted 1 to 4 people.

In 2008 my new roommate asked me if it would be ok to host a couchsurfer and I heard for the first time about this project. Since this time I had a lot of surfers at my place and also surfed the couches of some nice people.
