If you’ve ever experienced awkwardness or worse when renting accommodation, this ‘gay Airbnb’ might be the answer.

Not only that, but this new service also helps to connect gay men with likeminded guys around the world, adding a sense of community to the short-term accommodation rental market, while enriching the experience you get while travelling abroad with in-depth travel guides and recommendations.

It is an unfortunate reality that many travelling gay couples often face uncomfortable circumstances when it comes to booking a room.

Back in 2012, Matthieu Jost faced just that when he and his partner booked a shared apartment in Barcelona, Spain.

After arriving to check in, their female host was clearly uncomfortable with having a gay couple stay in her home, even going as far to ask if the two were going to sleep together in the same bed. This is not an uncommon situation and many gay couples have had similar experiences when travelling both domestically and abroad.

The following year when Jost launched Misterbnb with his co-founder, a short-term accommodation rental service by and for gay men, and the first gay Airbnb-style service of its kind.

The site can help provide safe and comfortable experiences for gay male travellers, connecting them with friendly renters.

As well as just offering accommodation, Misterbnb also helps to expand the sense of community among gay men internationally.

For those providing access to their homes, Misterbnb allows men to earn money from their spare-space and provide affordable temporary living arrangements.

Since its founding, Misterbnb has become the largest and most successful gay hotelier in the world, and has positively affected the lives of thousands of gay travellers, providing them with safe and hospitable environments.

Misterbnb also offers a welcome feeling and help travellers to connect with the largest global gay community. Misterbnb has helped foster connections with gay men across the world and provided travellers with the best experience for gay visitors to any new city.
