You've been called the “best host ever”. Why not share your entertaining skills with new people from all over the world?
Imagine having the world come to your doorstep… well that’s what happens! Hosting is a great way to meet travelers from around the world, and to connect with your neighbors too.
Some hosts like to cover the costs of fun dinner parties, while others use Bookalokal to make extra money doing what they love.
Our detailed star ratings allows guests to rank hosts based on 6 distinct criteria: quality of food, location, cleanliness, atmosphere, communication, and value for money. Guests also leave detailed comments about their experience to help others choose the right experience for them.
Whenever a host signs up we encourage them to become verified. This means we visit the host in their home, take pictures and sample their food. We’ll make sure we feel safe and enjoy the experience before giving them our “Verified” seal of approval.
A great experience is about so much more than food: it’s about eating with the right people in the right environment. We make sure you have all the information you need to book the right hosts.
