Why are people around the world opening up their spaces to Airbnb travelers?

Well, we thought they should tell you – in their own words. These are their stories.

We’re grateful to these folks, and to all our hosts everywhere, for making Airbnb one of the world’s great communities.

We can’t wait for you to join us.

Special thanks to the wonderful hosts who appear in this video. You can see more stories at www.airbnb.com/life.
