How to stay with LOCALS for FREE 🇵🇭 PHILIPPINES Travel Vlog Ep 27

When I travel, I love staying in hostels instead of hotels so I can meet people from all around the world, but I also love to mix up and stay with locals every once in a while.

To find awesome locals to stay with for free, I use

It’s not just about getting a free place to stay. My favorite perk is you can experience what it’s like to live like a local. Usually, your host can give you great local advice that you wouldn’t get from any tourism business. It’s always a unique experience with Couchsurfing. This isn’t even a sponsored post – I just really appreciate how Couchsurfing connects people from all over the world.
