WHY BE A HOST?
Meet inspiring guests
Host inspiring and like-minded guests you want to meet, get paid for it (or do it for free) and grow your network from your own home.
Be public or private
Choose whether you want your host profile to be public on our site or be kept private within our network, depending on your situation.
HOST & RENT ANYWHERE
THE HUMAN TOUCH
WHERE CAN I HOST GUESTS?
You can host guests in your LIVING ROOM, GUEST ROOM or rent out your ENTIRE HOME. Simply choose which spaces you can host guests in when you upload your host info.
WHERE DO I UPLOAD MY HOST INFO ?
Click 'Be a Host' in your dashboard.
WHO ARE THE GUESTS ?
Artists, scientists, designers, filmmakers, activists, writers, technologists, entrepreneurs and any other talented and visionary individual doing inspiring work worth supporting. Not random tourists.
CAN GUESTS SEE MY PROFILE TOO ?
Yes, but not your private info. Guests can see your:
- Profile photo
- First name
- Personal description
- Description of your work
- Work-related images
I LIVE IN A SMALL PLACE. CAN I STILL HOST?
Yes. You can host in a shared room, on the living room couch on in the floor of your studio. We believe all is good, as long as there's an acceptable level of comfort and cleanliness provided.
DO I HAVE TO BE HOME TO HOST?
No. Some of us can only host when we're traveling ourselves and staying elsewhere. In such cases - and if the guest is interested - we offer to connect the guest with local Human Hotel members in the area who might be up to meet.
HOW MUCH SHOULD I CHARGE ?
You set your own rates. However, we'll only present you with guests worth supporting, so please support them by charging 5-10% less than you would on mainstream listing platforms.
DO YOU TAKE A FEE FROM MY RATE ?
HOW DO I GET PAID ?
We're working on a payment system, but for now our hosts get paid directly in cash by their guest.
CAN I CANCEL MY HOSTING AGREEMENT AT ANY TIME?
Yes you can. There are no penalties for cancelled hosting agreements. But if you cancel your hosting agreement at the last minute, do consider giving your guest other options you'd recommend (like another host).
HAVE PROPERTY INSURANCE COVERAGE?
Yes we do. We're very committed to creating a safe and trusted Human Hotel environment, so even though we have never had any property damages (in our entire history), we understand that you need protection.
We have therefore created our Host Insurance Fund which will reimburse eligible hosts for damages up to $10,000 (USD). If you experience any damages to your property, please send us a message immediately to firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll handle the case accordingly and find an appropriate method of settlement between you and your guest.
