- CouchSurfing (CS)
- is also big, and its policies are somewhat more open and democratic. Managed by a non-profit organization.
- offline hospitality exchange network, more than 50 years old, and somewhat inconvenient for today's youth, but apparently it is completely democratic (including elections).
