I have heard of CouchSurfing and Airbnb and I know these services have apps.

Does anyone know of any other apps (only for iPhone / Android phone) available for connecting and finding accommodation, either via hospitality networks, or cheap hotels and hostels?

I am looking for more the bohemian ways to stay rather than hotel searches like TripAdvisor.

    What do you mean by app? For which device / platform? Is a web-site/app also OK for you? In that case there are plenty of offers on the web, such as Wimdu, a copy of Airbnb.

  • No, I'm specifically talking about phone apps. Mar 10 '13 at 15:29
  • For which phone? Many phones can open web-sites/apps as well, and FirefoxOS powered phones in fact nothing else.

  • What type of accomodation do you need? And what type platform for? TripAdvisor has an app for iOS and, probably, for Android. Mar 10 '13 at 15:31

    from the faq - " eliciting list-style answers, suggestions or recommendations on a topic or place (unless VERY specific criteria is listed) " is not permitted. Could you please rephrase the question, so as to avoid it being closed?

What you'll find that "unconventional" accommodation typically does not lend itself to be easily integrated into software-based inventory management systems (or at least cannot afford the cost of standardisation / development work yet) and hence the reason why you are far likelier to find apps to search "normal" types of accommodation.
