Barcelona LAST Minute COUCH Request <72 HOURS

Details


ARRIVING IN TOWN AND LOOKING FOR A HOST? If you are either coming over or you are already in town and NEED TO BE HOSTED, please JOIN "ONLY" IF YOU ARE COMING OVER WITHIN <72 HOURS. Asking for a couch weeks in advance is not a last minute request, so try to read through profiles of people offering couches, check references, etc., and then use the couch request function. Do not be lazy, it is more rewarding choosing than being chosen.

NEW REQUEST: Safety goes first. Therefore, both empty or hidden profiles are not allowed in here. Please take the time to fill out your profile as thoroughly as possible, upload some pictures and make an extra effort to introduce yourself.

Just try to tell us why we should welcome you to our places. Show that you care enough about your potential hosts to say who you are first.

We cannot allow guests with NEGATIVE references for hosting/surfing, and anyone receiving one will be immediately removed from the group (we want to avoid any possible discussion about it and if it is clearly received after a hosting/surfing experience, it is not our duty to decide if it is fair or not, but we cannot have you as a surfer in here for safety reasons).

Look outside the city limits if you are having a lot of trouble too. Those people who live just outside the city limits get nearly no requests. (30 kms means just 30 min with public transportation).

If you are traveling with friends, always introduce them in your CouchRequest. If they are CS members, link to their profiles as well.

Try also creating an Open CouchRequest by using the Itinerary tool on CS.

After leaving town, please remove yourself from this group. If not, we will do so on your behalf. We make massive surfers cleanup in the group from time to time. The only purpose is to manage better with all the members and keep this place as safe and useful as we can.

Feel free to come back and join us, whenever you need it again!

Safe travels

WANT TO OFFER YOUR COUCH? TO JOIN THE GROUP YOU MUST ACCEPT THE FOLLOWING TERMS & CONDITIONS:

1. First of all, let us know why you are joining the group. Please write your reason when pressing “JOIN THIS GROUP”.

2. To avoid issues happened in the past, we ask hosts for several minimum requirements:

- Safety goes first. Therefore, both empty or hidden profiles are not allowed in here. Please take the time to fill out your profile as thoroughly as possible, upload some pictures and make an extra effort to introduce yourself. The couch description is needed as well.
- A “YES” or a “MAYBE” is required for the couch availability, meaning you are an active host and go through requests.
- You must have some previous hosting/surfing experience (you have hosted 3 times at least), as "try first CS & then help others in return".
- We cannot allow hosts with NEGATIVE references for hosting/surfing, and anyone receiving one will be immediately removed from the group (we want to avoid any possible discussion about it and if it is clearly received after a hosting/surfing experience, it is not our duty to decide if it is fair or not, but we cannot have you as a host in here for safety reasons).

3. Your location must be set to either Barcelona or surroundings, so your potential surfers can find your CS profile easier.

4. We encourage to offer your couch publicly on the posts and not just privately, the group has changed in order to be more open about the hosting and to let people help, like in any other group.

5. If you decide to leave town, please remove yourself from this group. If not, we will do so on your behalf. We make massive hosts cleanup in the group from time to time. The only purpose is to manage better with all the members and keep this place as safe and useful as we can.

Feel free to come back and join us, whenever you need it again!

Safe travels
