Yeah, it is definitely better suited for the younger, usually solo traveler. You can always host, though. When my work schedule dictates that I can't take enough time off to visit another country, I let surfers from far away places stay with me. It is the next best thing to traveling and gives you a chance to brush up on those 2nd language skills.

I know a lot of people who stay at hostels, but I have yet to talk to anyone who has actually done couch surfing. There would have to be a lot of trust involved. JC

I have read about couch surfing & I agree it can be a great experience. However, I think for the most part it would suit the younger (20-something) generation. I find that when you get older, you want your space and are not keen on sleeping on a stranger's couch. Most of the hosts on couch surfing appear to be in their 20's, or if they are older, very eccentric.
But a good thing for the younger who are in the party/ crash-pad stage of life.

Anyone else out there on Couchsurfing?
If you aren't, I highly recommend it. It is an awesome way to see the world and pretty much the only way I travel. www.couchsurfing.org
If anyone is ever stuck in McGuire or visiting Philly, send me an email or look me up on CS.
