The Worldpackers complete guide for Hosts

More than a platform to connect Hosts and Travelers interested in exchanging skills for accommodation, Worldpackers is a community that works for the collaboration, relationships of trust and mobility of people around the world. Out of this goal, the host Community was born, an open channel to converse about everything involving collaborative management models, like recruiting and managing worldpackers travelers, best practices of exchange and the effective use of the platform.
