Question about Host

Can I trust strangers to share my space?

Our Guests are looking for a place to grow their business, not cause trouble. We screen all Guests first to make sure they’re legit and a good fit for your space based on the criteria you set in your listing.

You’ll always get to meet Guests before agreeing to share your space with them, so they won’t be strangers for long!
