Couchsurfing International Inc. operates, a hospitality service, and social networking website. The website provides a platform for members to stay as a guest at someone's home (homestay), host travelers, meet other members or join an event. Unlike many hospitality services, Couchsurfing is an example of the gift economy; there is no monetary exchange between members and there is no expectation by hosts for future rewards. Like all hospitality services, Couchsurfing is a form of collaborative consumption and sharing.
