ENTIRE HOME


We loved hanging out with our first guests and hearing about their work and projects, glass of wine in hand, in our own sitting room. It must be the laziest, nicest way to meet like-minded people. They ended up taking a couple of my sculptures to a charity auction I was contributing to in their home city and inviting some of their own artist friends to contribute works too. Beautiful serendipity.

FAQ'S

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 Hostin your dashboard. After uploading your host info, click on View to see how you're presented to guests. 

 

HOW DO GUESTS FIND MY HOST INFO?

We're currently a privately curated network which means guests request to stay through Human Hotel and we match their info with your (or others) host info and send them private links to relevant hosts.

 

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
  • Hometown
  • Occupation
  • Age
  • 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 ?

No.

 

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).

 

IS THERE ANY PROPERTY INSURANCE COVERAGE?

We're currently seeking the best insurance coverage option for our hosts. In the meantime, we will handle property damage on a case-by-case basis - and would like to add that we have so far never encountered a single issue

If you experience a guest damaging your property, please email us immediately at contact@humanhotel.com and we'll work with you to find an appropriate method of settlement between you and your guest.
