A Portuguese guy that ended up in Denmark in 2005, André is still living in Copenhagen and he's loving it. As a gay man, he really thinks Copenhagen is one of the best places on earth to live in, and that's exactly why he became a host. mister&b offered him the opportunity to share his passion for the city with fellow gay travelers. Create long-term friendships and memories by becoming a misterb&b host.
What does hosting for the gay community mean to you and why did you become a host?
Being a gay single traveler myself, I know how important it is to feel safe and at the same time to explore a city with the eyes of a local. misterb&b empowers us as a community by offering the opportunity to give a safe and fun experience to fellow gay travelers.
What is your level of interaction with your guests: do you hang out with them, do you show them around?
I hang out with them as much as I can. I don't always have time to show them around because of my job, but at least I try to hang out with them and/or hook them up with some of my friends.
In your opinion what attracts guests to your city
Copenhagen is known for being one of the best cities in the world to live in. I think its architecture and green lifestyle attracts a lot of people. Also being such a liberal and gay-friendly city is an upside which shouldn’t be underestimated.
Do you keep in touch with your guests or have any of them come back to stay with you again?
I do keep in touch with most of them, and I have paid them a visit myself in their respective countries. It all depends, of course, on how well you get along during their stay.
Give us 3 reasons why you recommend hosting on misterb&b
It is empowering for the LGBT community - it gives us the chance to look out for each other, you get to live and hang out with a local, and finally you also get to make new friends.
Why should a guest stay with you?
My apartment is placed in the city, with easy access either by walking, cycling or taking the public transportation. It is big enough to host a single traveler or a couple, without feeling too cramped, so you can always have "me time" if that is what you need. I also have a good network in the city, so I can take you out to explore the gay scene like a local, invite you to hang out with my friends, and have a good memory for your stay. ●
