Corporate by day, hipster by night, Daniel loves traveling and sharing his passions with the international LGBTQ community. That's why he is one of misterb&b's super hosts in Lisbon. The alternative gay scene of this city is the reason why gay guys from all over swarm there every year. No attitude, a cool vibe, and the perfect place to explore your pride.
What does hosting for the gay community mean to you and why did you become a host?
I became a host because I love traveling, and I wanted to give other travelers a personalized and special experience while in Lisbon. There are many unwritten rules to each city, and I feel it's important to share my knowledge to make everyone's holiday memorable.

What is your level of interaction with your guests: do you hang out with them, do you show them around?
If I have the time, I always start out by giving them the city guide that I created for Lisbon. It's a list of things that you can't google. I also like to give them specific suggestions according to their style. If our connection is right, I invite them out with my friends to start the night and they can then decide what they want to do from there.

Why should a guest stay with you ?
My apartment, while small, is the perfect location for tourists to explore the city. I'm positioned right next to the gay areas and the main tourist attractions. I'm on the top floor of my building with a view of the city, castle, and sea that no other place can beat ●
