I've been a very active couchsurfing host and guest for a few years but lately i would like something more when i'm travelling. That's why I like Airbnb so much. It gives you the chance to be local and not wander in a hotel the whole time.
Thanks for the advice and i'll take it into consideration.
About the odour, i know... I'm saving to renovate my bathroom hoping to solve the problem but mostly that's the smell of Antwerp :).
Thanks for staying
