¿Es el couchsurfing confiable y creíble?

COUCHSURFING. Couchsurfing es una empresa que ofrece a todos sus usuarios intercambios de hospitalidad y servicios de red social.

¿CÓMO FUNCIONA? Dentro de la página se pueden buscar a personas que ofrezcan su casa para hacer intercambios, se puede buscar por gustos y preferencias, por lugares o se puede pertenecer a grupos sociales dentro de la misma.

¿ES EL COUCHSURFING CONFIABLE Y CREÍBLE? Dentro de la página se ofrece una seguridad “total” a los usuarios de couchsurfing, ya que aseguran confidencialidad de información, sin embargo, cuando haces contacto con alguna persona por interés de intercambio, esa persona puede observar toda la información que otorgaste en un principio. A pesar de que generalmente se han generado buenas experiencias y se pueden llevar a cabo excelentes intercambios culturales con la ayuda de esta empresa, existen casos de secuestro y violación en algunos casos.

Existen libros que relatan ambas partes del couchsurfing, algunos que relatan increíbles historias, otros que relatan la horrible experiencia y existen también libros que ofrecen consejos sobre lo que debes hacer y no hacer al exponerte a estas situaciones.
