Q: How are guests matched with hosts?

A: Matching guests with hosts is a hands-on process; there is no algorithm for it! Completing the Lodging Host Information Survey is step one so we can get a sense of the type of accommodation you have available. We ask that prospective hosts complete the survey no later than Friday, December 1. Similarly, guests are given a survey regarding their needs and preferences. With this information, we try to match the right offering with the right need, so it is important to be as specific as possible when completing the survey!
