As a guest, I try to be as respectful to my host as possible. This includes keeping noise at the household norm and cleaning after myself. If the hosts are interested in chatting, I love hearing their perspective on their favorite things to do in their city of residence.
As a traveler, I like to slowly explore the city by foot and frequent the restaurants and bars that locals enjoy the most.
