Misterbnb is the number one gay hotelier in the world. Founded in 2014, misterbnb provides to the LGBTQ community short-term rental properties from gay or gay-friendly hosts globally. Misterbnb was born after the CEO’s unpleasant experience, when traveling in Barcelona Matthieu Jost, as a gay man himself, felt uncomfortable when he and his partner arrived in the apartment which they have rented and they weren’t welcomed by the owner. It was clear for him then that a short-term rental service by and for gay travelers was much needed, to provide to the LGBTQ community a safe place where they are accepted and they can feel comfortable. Misterbnb has hosts in more than 135 countries with a plethora of rental properties.
