Hospitality Club (HC) is a free hospitality exchange service. It provides places for people to stay, usually when traveling. The service is a gift economy. The people who provide a place for people to stay can not ask for payment for the services.[1] Hospitality Club runs off of a reputation system. In HC, members can leave references about how good the service was.[2] People who use it are usually asked to check each other's passports. This usually does not happen.[3][4] As of March 2022, the site HC had over 325,000 users from 207 countries.[5]

The company was founded in 2000 by Veit Kühne.
