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. 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 a curated network which means guests need to be Human Hotel members to book a stay. We then match their request 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. No 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 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 online payout 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, we expect you to have a very good reason and hope you will help your guest by giving him/her 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll work with you to find an appropriate method of settlement between you and your guest.
