As a community, we’ve stayed in thousands of different hostels, homestays, hotels, luxury resorts, squats, campsites — and whatever other accommodation options there are out there — around the world. We’ve got profiles and guides on how to dirtbag it through the American West and what 700-thread-count sheets feel like.

We’re big into couchsurfing, so you’ll find lots of tips for building up your profile and getting into the community. We also like to hit alternatives like home exchanges, short-term rentals, and house sits.

Definitely check out our stuff on novelty accommodations — ice hotels, a jumbo jet hostel, and more.
