Can I use Couchsurfing to get Stay?



Storycitra.com-Holiday is wonderful and how if we are poor or list budget. Many people suggestion to used Couchsurfing website. Actually, honestly I never hear about this website. It is making me wonder about this site. So, I am trying to find out. So today, Citra will tell you story about “Can I Use Couchsurfing to get FREE STAY?


I will say It’s up to you and depend on you. Honestly I am so wonder how its site can be work for me. Then, I decide to try to use this site when I am going holiday in Malacca, Malaysia. I sent to few people request about my plan to go holiday in Malacca. Do you know how many people reply my request? The answer is only two people reply my request. It’s so disappointed me. I think it is easy to get accepted to stay with people who offer stay in their house in Couchsurfing. It is FUNNY right! Honestly, I do not know how this site work. Short story, I get hosts.
I arrive in Malacca and I never been there before! I have to go to my “host” house and I get lost because the taxi driver do not know the address. Lucky me, I have local number in Malaysia. So, I can call her and she talk to the driver. Finally, we are arrive and safety. Actually, I used taxi online and I want to give him tips, before doing it, the taxi driver ask more money because he get 2 times return and become grumpy. So, he lost 4 ringgit and just gets 1 ringgit as his wish. 



Moral Point: Do your work with love and do not complain. Perhaps it will be your wonderful time. Then what you expected.

Short story, I wonder why she approve my request to stay with her. I am new member on the Couchsurfing and I never use it before. She said she also wants to reject it but she read my profile. She open my blog because I put my link blog on my profile on Couchsurfing to make sure, I am real and I am good person. After hearing her words, It’s making me think. Profile is so important to get good impress to the people but REAL profile and It is not FAKE profile including to give some words unimportant things or to short words on profile.



I will give tips for newbie which already use this service for a few times when I holiday in Malaysia and Singapore. It just based on the true story or my experience when using this Couchsurfing. So, I am sorry because I am not expert using this service but honestly I love it and hate it in the same times. Why? I will tell you in this article. You just need stay tune to get the end of the story hahaha.

Tips for Fill Your Profile on Couchsurfing

Before you can fill the Couchsurfing profile. You should register it first. It’s free to register and use it with the limited access to send requests. No worry, my first accepted host, I am using free access. So, you should not be wonder about it, Ok!


The most important fill your profile with honest and simple words so people understand that. How the host wants to approve your request if they do not know who you are. This position both of us are stranger. The one wants to stay in their house and the other one the owner house which each other do not know the personality. Do you will allow stranger to stay in your house but you do not know who are they and their face? Honestly, I am not!



How to make people wants to accept your request?  Simply, fill your profile! There only 9 sections to fill it in coucsurfing site. About Me => I just fill with simple words and I give my link blog to make sure people know who I am. If you are not blogger, YouTuber, no worry, You can fill it about your life. Simple words to explain who you are.



The other, a reason  Why I am on Couchsurfing =>   This is important to express yourself. If you just write simple words to get free house stay. Of course nobody will accept your request. Do you think, their house as a shelter or hostel with 100 percent discount a.k.a FREE. You should make good impress to people. I am not talking about “HOST” but also couchsurfing other members because you will get shared cost when stay in hotel or transportation. It would be great to meet new people and make new friendship.
I have to say I will continue this article tomorrow about the benefit and also my experience which tell you this couchsurfing is good and bad in the same times. Just stay tune to visit this as soon as possible, o.k

  8. Wow, saya awam banget soal dunia travelling. Dulu, pernah dengar sih teman di Batam yang terima traveller luar negeri untuk stay di rumahnya. Sebaliknya dia juga nginap di rumah orang saat jalan ke luar. Tapi kok saya langsung membayangkan tinggal di rumah orang yang tak dikenal sebelumnya gimana gitu ya. (Kayaknya saya memang gak punya jiwa petualang). Hihihi..

  10. Do your work with love, don't complain.
    Sering kali kita masih banyak complain dan menuntut, mungkin harus mempertebal rasa syukur.

    Nice info, sista..
