for the exact same reasons why internet hopes in the early 90ies became the
endless void of cat videos and smartphones addicts.

why hospitality gateway to lives would escape the same fate?, just tell me. it
was meant to end up like this, by the fault of those who were too passive to
bend the evolution curve and transmit activity rather than passivity.
period.

Thankyou for sharing such an insightful article. All the points mentioned here
are worth-considering.  An important aspect here can be considered of installing
hotel room safes. Safes contribute to raise the security level and also reduces
the liability claims towards the hotel. It becomes very important that hotel
management gives prime importance to the security of guests and their valuables.
Installing safes of famous brand and of high security like
http://hotelsafes.com/globalfrontopeningdrawersafeplus.html will increase the
customer satisfaction of  the hotel and will help to achieve great star ratings
inturn increasing hotel brand trust.

for one thing, commercial travel has become much cheaper in comparison to
earlier times, particularly group travel. And that has NEVER been to the small,
interesting places without fashionable shops, a bar and big events. I had my
taste of that when I spent Easter in Amsterdam. You practically fell over folks
from all over who were busy taking selfies on a stick... You share your
experience with an old SERVAS friend of mine in Germany who has used HC as a
guest but never had a visitor in his village (19 houses altogether, one daily
bus into the next bigger town). 
In part this development is the result of all the emphasis of the hospex
organizations on "see the world for free" rather than "learn how other folks
live". Eventually folks will come around and rediscover the joys of
down-to-earth travel...

A simple fact like NOT living in a (big) city, makes you (e.g. in my case) a
total no-request-at-all host. 
This was not the case some 20 years ago (like in true old SERVAS times...) when
people still traveled a COUNTRY, instead of a city.... 
That's a massive change in the whole tourism industry !  Everything is about
city-trips now. In the (far) past, people 'travelled' a country in all its
aspects. Cities, towns, villages, nature/landscape...  
It's a big loss from the human viewpoint that this recent tunnel-vision (plane
to some city, plane back home..) replaced massively the adventure of exploring a
country.

Here in the UK hitch-hiking is a dying art

70' & 80's you would see a line of hitch-hikers on motorway on ramps. Nowadays
hitch-hikers are far & between. The only hitch-hikers I see now are guys
carrying trade plates from delivering vehicles to dealerships

In Dutch we would say, Zalig Kerstfeest or Prettig Kerstfeest and for happy New
Year we all the possible languagewould say Gelukkig Nieuwjaar, but if you really
would like to say in several languages, I would advise to visit

and for happy new year

Whereas HC's approach is/was the offer of acquainting oneself with different
folks from different countries and cultures, possibly enabling friendships, but
definitely encouraging the exchange of visits among members, CS has deteriorated
and become commercial. Their appeal is to folks who don't give a hoot about
possible connecttions to other folks as long as free accommodations are
offered.
Unfortunately the vision of HC is fizzling, mostly because of the abandonment by
the honchos. The members who remain have not changed - they are just harder to
find. It certainly would be easier if technical support would finally make the
changes which were promised eons ago! Until that happens, you just have to
muddle through and hope for the future. Right now it seems that BeWelcome.org
has the best chances of picking up where HC is failing...

Hi!
Unfortunately, the hospitality movement definitely undergoes a crisis. HC became
in 99% inactive and it needs a revival. CS monopolized the movement, but it
seems to be drained by inappropriate attitudes. Many people mention in their
profiles some negative experiences and mostly reject or postpone couch requests.
Also, people don't know well how to look for hosts and CS search engine doesn't
help them - 95% of my CS guests came when my profile was at the top in my city.
(I warned them that it would be little space, but they agreed, I've bought more
mattresses and there was a good party:-) But, most members would just reject the
excess requests and all this means that some people receive more requests than
they can handle and others fall into inactivity. Last login times on CS are
slowly closing to that terrible few years mostly seen on HC. Humanity also
undergoes a crisis - so many wars and hostility haven't been seen since long
ago. Travelling to many places is less safe, makes more hassle and less people
can afford it. Also new "iron curtains" emerge, like between EU or US and the
rest of the world. Not to mention strictly economic "iron curtains". But I still
believe in goodness:-) A worldwide brainstorm is needed how to revive and fix
the hospitality movement, based on the so far experiences and current
conditions. Greetings for all people:-)
