This is a cool take on last minute, on demand bookings. very well thought for mobile, kinda uber for couch-surfing :) i dig it, especially b/c all the big companies in the space were never mobile first. congrats

Thanks man. Very excited to be solving the problem of last-minute stays. Our goal is very simple - we want more people to travel more frequently. We believe that if we can surface alternative accommodations faster, then we’re on our way there … If we can get someone who travels twice a year to travel four times a year, we’re doing something very special.

I'd love to hear more of your thoughts on host incentives, as well as traveler fallback options. Do hosts get a premium for being more accommodating last minute? What happens if a traveler arrives in a city expecting to be able to find a last minute host and can't? Hoteltonight? It seems many are going to be terrified of arriving in a new city and have even a slight risk of not being accommodated.
your product looks pretty awesome! Would complement ours pretty nicely ;) We're focused on spontaneous travel from a flights perspective!

I used this last week when I was in LA and I LOVED the experience. My favorite part is that the hosts solicit you, not the other way around... really streamlines the discovery experience and makes it easy to find a place quickly.
I second this! Such a good idea to reverse this and not spend so much time as a traveler making booking requests, then potentially waiting 24 hours to hear back.

classic low end disruption of an incumbent (airbnb). very smart concept
We've hosted a couple of guests at our loft and the experience is amazing. Being mobile first and last minute lowers the planning overhead for both sides. Super stoked to be joining
and team on the journey ahead.
