Staydu is the best way to host travelers. If you are traveling you can stay in the house of a host in return of your help, money or for free. You choose!
1. Staydu Website
Hosts from over 120 countries use Staydu and they are distributed throughout the whole world.
Staydu was founded in 2011 in Germany with the aim to make traveling and the culture exchange cheaper.
4. Types of hosts
There are three different types of host:
- Stay and help (marked with a red circle): You can stay with a local for free and in return you help him/her with different work. E.g. You can stay with a local and help him looking after his kids.
- Stay and pay (marked with a yellow circle): You pay for your stay in return for accommodation and electricity.
- Stay for free (marked with a blue circle): You can stay at the host for free. They like to welcome you as a part of their life.
5. Type of Work
If you choose the “stay and help” modality, the type of work that you will do will vary from host to host. There are a lot of different things to do like building a garage, helping with gardening, renovation, looking after kids or pets, working in a hostel or teaching English.
The length of the stay is different from host to host.
