Each of our trusted hosts enjoy hosting for many various reasons.

Nevertheless, taking in a lodger or becoming a host for international students is definitely rewarding. Happy reading!

  1. Do you know all the good restaurants in London? Share your passion for London, and more importantly food, and give your guest advice about the best hidden spots that you absolutely love - maybe they’ll love them as much as you!
  2. Become lifetime friends with your guests and help them improve their English! Connecting and being able to socialise and learn from each other is an important factor. The team at Host Family Stay has carefully matched guests with you in order for you and the student to enjoy their experiences - your guest could become a good friend!
  3. You will never feel alone and will appreciate the extra company. Whether you are living with your family, partner, or alone, it is always nice to meet new people and have dinner together - this could be you and your guest!
  4. You and your guest will exchange and gain knowledge about different cultures while trying new things - you might even learn about traditional food by cooking together!
  5. It is good for everyone! Your guest is a student, and you have a great room that is not being used. It is convenient for both parties - you will help out a student whilst learning about a different culture!
