    Hello everyone,

    I am new to here, but I really liked the concept ,I have been hosting people i have met during my travels to other countries.

    I am taking the step to introduce myself, because I would enjoy hosting and meeting new people. I am really looking forward to host people at my place in Lucknow, India.

    When you visit me, I am open to spend time with you. I can show you around the historical sites and nature parks. So looking forward to some interesting associations.

    Best wishes

    How many Hawai'ian Gay Shamans & Monks do you know? Let's connect while I'm in town (4/29 - 6/9) and you'll be able to say at least - ONE! Send a private note if you're open to hosting an evening potluck then powerful guided meditation and debrief afterwards. We'll explore more.

    I am an Indian living in Ireland with my husband. We both work here as IT professionals from last few years and would like to take some time off to visit New York City. We are arriving in New York on 31-May-2012 at 5pm and leaving NYC on 4-June at 11am so we require a place to stay for 4 nights.

    We are interested in couch surfing for the our stay. We are very clean and simple people. We promise to be good guests.

    Also if you suggest some places to visit in the city, things to do and also some info about any advanced booking if required for any museums, theme park or any other visitor attractions. We would like to stay close to the city centre area or at a place which is close to city centre by public transport.

    Any suggestions about our trip would be appreciated.

    Thanks in advance,

      Hi, thanks for the info. Is there a quick way to select people who I want to send the tripping request, I noticed that for every request I have to enter the dates & time of travel and then write message individually. Is there any sort of template I can create and send that to a host in NYC.

    I am arriving in the big apple on Friday April 5th and fly back out on the 11th. I would love the opportunity to stay with some locals while I am there. Hotels can be so cold and uninviting. Im looking at opening a business in Manhattan and what better way to understand the market than through the people that make NY the awesome city it is! Im always up for a fun adventure and would love to re-pay the compliment in the good old mid-west!

Im coming to NYC around middle May on my way to Italy to visit my old mum, for the Veggie Parade, to visit art galleries and Vegan restaurants etc. Im a bit anxious coming from the NZ country-side where I live to the huge bIg Apple .My original plan was to stay in NY 3weeks but I cant afford the high cost of a hostel,and I didnt get any hosting replay up to now, so Im currently looking at 10 days .

    I am trying to live in the city this summer, but I cannot afford to pay rent. I have been looking for hostel jobs where I can work in exchange for a bed at the hostel, or even being a live in nanny would work, too. Does anyone have any suggestions for hostels or ways to find jobs in NYC where I don't have to pay rent? I don't even care if I get paid, I just want to be in the city! If I don't find one...I may just trip in NYC the whole summer!

    I am Johanna, short Jo from Dortmund, Germany, and I am travelling alone the first time.
    I am visiting NYC for two weeks (2/22/12-3/8/12).
    I am an artist ( wood and ice carving ) who loves to lough, loves to cook and eat vegan things.
    I like to see some tourist stuff, go shopping, eat vegan cheesecake, pizza... I like to go to parties or concerts and see as much art as possible.
    I am visiting the "Vegetarian Food Fest NYC" on 3/3 and 3/4.
    BUT I don`t want to do this all alone. So please feel welcome to join me or show me some nice places.
    I am also searching for places to sleep, so if you like to help...

    Bye then, Jo

    Hello New Yorkers
    I'm a 32 year old Australian guy flying into NYC from Iceland, either Tues 17th or Wed 18th Jan. I'd love to meet some natives, and am also looking for a place to stay, so if anyone is interested, hit me up. (I know it's late notice, but I think it's actually easier for people to know what they're doing in the next days, rather than months!)
    I'll have my bike with me, and am looking forward to cycling the city (I know it's cold, but less snow than Reykjavik I hope!)

    I'm super fresh on here, thus no validation, but couchsurfing and facebook should be ok!

    Hey there,

    We are 4 university students from Greece 2 girls and 2 guys and we are coming to New York to see it and experience it.
    We will be there from the 26th of March till the 6th of April.
    (Actually the 2 of us are going to leave on the 3rd and the rest on the 6th)

    We would really like to meet with local people to show us around and introduce us to the unknown part of the city.

    It would also be great if you could host us for some days.

    Looking forward to hearing from you.

    Hello there, I came recently on after someone suggesting me on CS ! (so that also explains the quite empty profile )I'm 21, from Belgium and a Linguistic student. I'm coming to NYC on 9th til 13th february with my friend.(he studies civil engineering) We would not only like to see the city, we would also like to feel it.And therefor there is no better way than to meet locals, share experiences, hang out etc (oh yeah, minor detail; we were also wondering if someone would be OK to offer us a couch! ) Can't wait to come !:)

    Hey all, will be in NYC with two friends this weekend, looking to stay at HI-NY for a couple nights, would anyone up to host up for the rest of the weekend? Specifically Sun-Mon night? If you could host us before that we can switch the dates around too. I'm a wheelchair traveler so it's not easy to find a host, even worse with 3 trippers! Yikes! Showing my friends the experience of tripping/surfing because they're interested in what I do. If you can not help, but want to hang out, let me know! We'd love to meet up with some local trippers :)

    Hey everyone... A small group of us honors students from the University of Oklahoma is driving to NYC to Occupy Wall Street this weekend. As the 99%, we do not have a lot of money to spend, and are looking for a place to crash. We are not picky, and are willing to sleep on the floor so long as there is a roof over our heads. Does anyone in the City have room for the 4-5 of us? We will be getting into town on Friday mid-day, and will need a place to sleep Friday and probably Saturday night. THANK YOU!

I will be in New york between 1-8 of October and I just need a place to leave my luggage for two nights (3 and 4) because I will go with a bus to Niagara Falls and I don't want to carry with me all my luggage. I will be staying at the West Side Ymca Hostel, 5 West 63rd Street for two nights and than 3 nights at another hostel and I don't know where to leave my luggage.
    Do you think somebody can help me?
