Misterbnb is on a mission to make booking apartment rentals a little easier for gay travelers. CEO Matthieu Jost began the company after his own experience with an Airbnb host who was uncomfortable renting her apartment to Jost and his partner. Following the incident, Jost decided to establish his own short-term rental service by and for gay men in order to create a more safe and comfortable experience for gay travelers.
Similar to the popular service Airbnb, Misterbnb allows gay travelers to rent out their own home or to book affordable short-term rentals for a day, a week or longer. But while the services are similar in some respects, Misterbnb differs in that it helps to facilitate a strong sense of community within the growing sector of global gay tourism.
Currently Misterbnb is the largest gay hotel brand with rentals available in nearly every corner of the globe.
