Removing my couch from searches for Paris?
Posted September 27th, 2013 - 8:39 am by from Choisel, France (Permalink)
Hi everybody,

I regularly receive couch requests from people who want to visit Paris. I answer "We are not in Paris. Please check our location and get back to me if you still wish to come to our place". This is usually the last I hear from these surfers.

It takes over one hour to go from our place to Paris, and that is if I drive them to the station! If they have to walk, it takes over two hours. If they drive, over an hour in unusually good traffic conditions, and up to three or four hours at rush time. This is definitely not convenient for people who want to visit Paris.

I have never registered my place as "Paris", it has been done automatically by the couchsurfing site, just because we are in what is officially "Paris Region".

Is there any way I could remove my couch from searches for Paris, and only make it visible for searches such as "French countryside", or nearby towns?

Safety? It is not about safety... OK, it is annoying, but not to the point of endangering my mental health :)

I tried to contact site support:

but my computer does not connect to that page... :(
