This group is for last minute couch request (no more than 48 hs in advance). This is not meant to replace the regular couchsearch and the personalized requests. This is intended only for justified last minute request, for example if your arranged host suddenly can´t host you for whatever reason, or if your flight was cancelled and you have to stay one more day in the city, or if you were planning to go to a hostel and all of them are full.
Join this group if you need an emergency couch, or if you live in Buenos Aires and are willing to offer such hand to travellers in need, and you don´t mind being contacted for a couch on the spot. }
A tip for those needing a couch: if you did not succeed finding a couch even if you tried, maybe it is because you limited your search to the limits of Buenos Aires city. That people you contacted is probably busy with surfers and gets too many requests! Try with people who would also like to host and get fewer request: Buenos Aires surroundings. You can easily get to downtown in a 20-50 minutes train from several places, not longer than you would need to move within the city if you stay on some the most requested barrios. You could try, just to name a few: to the north Vicente López, San Isidro, Martínez, Beccar, Acassuso, Florida or to the south Avellaneda, Lanús... check the map and/or ask your potential hosts about transportation options. This will make your options wider!
