“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.“

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.
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.
Do you take a fee from my rate?
