Crashpadder – cool community homestay service


Crashpadder is a new community homestay service which provides a room and bed for travellers via a community classified ad service. You have a bed spare, list it with these guys, and if anyone is visiting your city, they can book your room for as many nights as they need.


The interface is deliciously clean and simple, and there’s a bunch of great additional information about the location, host, reviews and maps to help you make the best choice. It’s a perfect example of how to do this kind of ‘replace the hotel’ service online with style. Great for a bookmark! is a homestay community that has members all over the world. With Crashpadder hosts earn extra money from their spare space, and travellers save money on expensive hotels and avoid the discomfort of hostels – by staying with a friendly local.
