Every year, Worldpackers selects the best hosts on the platform based on reviews from our travelers. Check out the 2020 list below! Every year more and more hosts and travelers find their way to travel in collaboration with Worldpackers. Our community is leaving fear and anxiety behind, making the most of new travel experiences and choosing Worldpackers experiences over traditional travel.
With so many options, it can be difficult to decide which opportunities are best for you. We’ve decided to share the best hosts in the Worldpackers community to make your work a little easier. In a way, you, the travelers, are the ones who really chose the best hosts because we used their ratings left and the number of exchanges completed during a year to create this list. Congratulations to all the hosts on the list who have encouraged travelers to leave their comfort zones , explore new destinations, and pursue their travel dreams!
