Mr L and I just made the decision to (probably) go to Iceland next year! It was his turn to pick, and the fact that the flight is only 6 hours and way cheaper than our other choices basically made it for him*. However, hotels and airbnb houses seem to be crazy expensive. I’m looking at ways to reduce our total spend, and thought about this website. In theory it seems great, but also really scary. Does anyone here have experience using it to find places to stay for free, good or bad?

*We were originally going to not go anywhere till 2017, but after seeing all the amazing things you can see/do in Iceland, Mr L started to suggest that maybe we could pull it off next year instead, at which point I screamed “Yes! Let’s do it!”
