Couchsurfing Hangouts

Meet nearby travelers and locals, no planning required

    Great app, for meeting interesting people who have great perspectives on life and lots of experiences to share from their trips.


    There are a decent amount of people who try to us CS as a dating app, which is not it's purpose and can sometimes be annoying.

    I use the couchsurfing app all the time. It is how I made the large network (of English speaking) people that I have since moving abroad. I go to their weekly meetups, picnics, and other events as well meet people through the hangout when I'm bored. I've stayed with two hosts and meet up with other travelers and locals when I'm traveling as well as meet on a separate trip with one of those travelers. Recommend to anyone who wants to expand their horizons, meet interesting people, and become a global citizen.

    Amanda has used this product for one year.

Thanks for hunting us, Jack! Incredibly excited about this. People primarily use Couchsurfing to stay with a local when they're traveling, or to host travelers coming to their town. But we heard from members that they wanted an easier, more spontaneous way to meet up with one another (think: you're traveling with family and already have accommodations sorted, but still want to spend a day meeting locals). Hangouts does just that. See who's nearby, what they're up to, and make plans to meet-up. A few ways you might use Hangouts: 1) To find a local to have a meal with during a way-too-long layover in Frankfurt. 2) To find a more competent Pokémon Go partner than your roommate 3) To invite a few travelers in town to join you & friends for a hike, movie, or beach day Here if you have any questions - fire away! You can also reach me personally -

@bethany_stachenfeld Hey Bethany! Yup, works worldwide 🌍 :) At the moment, the most popular city for Hangouts is actually Istanbul, with London and Berlin vying for second.

This will be a great way to find some new friends when I'm backpacking in the fall without tapping into the hostel scene, thanks for the release!
