How it works - Host

It’s free to list on Homestay.com. You must be living in your home during the guest’s stay, and be available to spend a little time with them, to make it a truly authentic and unique travel experience for them with a local. Homestay.com is intended for guests over the age of 18, unless accompanied by an adult for the duration of their booking.
