HouseTrip gives the opportunity to choose exactly what you want with plenty of photographs of the properties available. In particular, if you have a very small budget you can choose a private room in someone else's home or, if you like privacy then you can go for an entire apartment.
The fact that once you've chosen what you want you will be put in direct contact with the host is also very clever as any doubts or questions can be covered prior to finalizing the reservation.
Our experience worked perfectly as we had a very short time limit to find something and the host replied within minutes. You pay HouseTrip directly, but they only pay the host 24 hours after you move in, so in pricipal you cannot lose. It's a great solution and you collect free nights as you go!
A service well worth exploring!
