But if you like:

then maybe Pasporta Servo is something for you. Read on.

What is Pasporta Servo?

Symbol: house Pasporta Servo is a hospitality network, consisting of hosts in more than 100 countries around the globe. To join the network as a guest, you only have to register and create the guest profile. Then you can use the service. Each host has specified some conditions, for example on the number of guests or days, or notification in advance. Hosts won’t charge you anything, many will even offer you breakfast or a perfect dinner, but if you come for a week with four people, you’ll understand that some may ask for a small contribution.

Important: Pasporta Servo can never be used for other purposes, such as requests for help, correspondence (pen pals), invitation letters for a visa, etc.

This can’t be true. What’s the catch?

Well, OK, there’s one important condition. You’ll have to learn Esperanto. The application form is in Esperanto, the address list is in Esperanto, and all hosts speak Esperanto. No, wait! It’s not as bad as it seems. Esperanto is an easy language. Easy grammar, no exceptions, recognizable words, everything you always wanted in a language. You can learn it in six months. If you’re a bright language student, one month may be enough for a basic conversation level.
