Meet Inspiring Guests
Our Insurance will cover you
Be Public or Private
Host & Rent Anywhere
It must be the laziest, nicest way to meet like-minded people. Our guests 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.

6 TIPS FOR PRESENTING YOUR HOST SPACE
WHERE CAN I HOST GUESTS?
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.
HOW MANY HOST LISTINGS CAN I HAVE?
You can have 2 listings max. Your home and your studio for example. We do not allow professional landlords with multiple listings.
WHERE DO I UPLOAD MY HOST INFO?
In your Member Dashboard, under the menu Hosting, click ‘Upload a Host Space’.
WHO ARE THE GUESTS?
Artists, scientists, designers, filmmakers, activists, writers, researchers, technologists, entrepreneurs and other fun and visionary individuals doing inspiring work worth supporting. No random tourists!
CAN GUESTS SEE MY PROFILE TOO?
Yes, but not your private info. Guests can see your:
- Profile photo
- First Name
- Description about yourself
- Description about your practive
- Work-related images & videos
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 would be interesting 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 an adding extra online payout systems but for now it’s best you set up a PayPal account to receive payments.
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.
