Not all guests are the same. Not all hosts are the same. In this chapter, typologies of hosts and guests are proposed. The key dimensions of classifying hosts are how important earning money, befriending people, and living an ethical life are. The key dimensions for guests are saving money, meeting people, having an authentic experience, and finding accommodation that caters to their unique needs. We suggest that each host or guest is a mixture of those pure types and, optimally, compatible hosts and guests can be matched.
