What is CouchWiki?

Couchwiki is a travel community guide for Hospitality networks like CouchSurfing, Hospitality Club, BeWelcome, BeLodged, Global Freeloaders, Servas etc.

A travel community guide is something like WikiTravel but more personal. It helps you experience travel with the senses of a local.

Why use Couchwiki?

Simple. Because Couchwiki is open to anyone and everyone. It is in keeping with the philosophy of inclusion and openness. We believe in decentralized control, in self-moderation, and that everyone who has something valuable to contribute may do so with ease.

The control is important as has been shown by history, both within Hospitality Club as well as in CouchSurfing.

What are the Guidelines
