Couchsurfing may have sold out and lost its soul but couchsurfing camps remain a fun way to hang out with a bnnch of new people in nature. Not so much a festival as a fun gathering generally involving plenty of alcohol.

Alternatives to Couchsurfing

If you’d like to find some of the original traveller spirit now so missing from Couchsurfing then you can try:

Bewelcome – smaller, groovier.

Trustroots – the newest hospitality alternative with a back to basics feel.

Hospitality Club – yes, it’s an oldie and should have been redesigned 10 years ago but it’s still going.

And more hardcore travellers meet up every year at the Hitch Gathering.
