We’re Houst. Our mission is to make Houst the global home of hosting.
We’ve grown fast. Since launching in 2015 (as Airsorted), we’ve signed up thousands of happy hosts, helping them to makeover £115,000,000 in earnings.
The business has now expanded worldwide – we’re operating in over 20 cities globally, from Auckland to Lisbon, and there’s a lot more to come.
Though we have three types of customers (hosts, guests and cleaners), we built the Houst product for our hosts. From holidaymakers to full-time landlords; host happiness is central to everything we do.
