About Me

📌 Unavailable: After 3/Nov, going back to krakow.
📌 Shitty couchrequests from empty profiles will be replied with a simple NO with no further explanation.
📌 ¿Eres español o latinoamericano? Escríbeme en español.
📌 Consider reading the info about my couch:
📌 If you're staying only for one night, I'm most likely to say NO because I would barely have time to meet you.


Temporarily in Madrid, the 5th coolest place in the world...
#1 is MEXICO CITY, of fucking course!!! #2 Budapest, #3 Krakow, #4 Warsaw ;)

I'm supposed to be living in Poland, but currently I'm on an extended business trip in Madrid until the of October and I'm way too lazy to change the description of my current couch :P

My name is Alberto but most of the people know me as "EL ARAÑO" (The Spider). I' ll tell you the whole story later :P

I didn't really want to get to this point, but due to the exaggerated quantity of shitty requests from people that think that I'm nothing else than a free hostel, I won't even consider your request if you don't include this secret magic password:

I'm a normal guy (you know... 2 hands, 2 legs, 3 noses...) working as a programmer in a bank.
I'm a very relaxed dude. Sometimes I can seem to be cold... but I'm not! I just need to have a good conversation subject and I'll be able to talk and joke for hours!

Even if I'm not really good I like photography I try to do my best and sometimes I get my reward. I'm specially proud of my PsychoTeddy Project 🐻

I'm not a party animal but I'm always in for sharing a couple drinks, some snacks, listening to good music and having long chats.

Why I’m on Couchsurfing

If I can't afford a world tour, I'll make the world come to my place :)
