Grad student at University of Wisconsin-Madison.
For guests: I am not as into being a "hotel" for you as I am offering my home to you. Thus I don't do things like offer bagels or other such luxuries, but I do offer my home and hopefully a great and very affordable place to stay.
For hosts: I am a former couchsurfing host (when I lived in China after college) and a current AirBnB host, am respectful and rarely get the opportunity to travel due to my busy schedule. I'm likely to be out and about exploring the city when I do get the chance.
