Can't Access CouchSurfing - Troubleshooting Instructions

If the site is UP but you cant access the page, try one of the below solutions:

Browser Related Problems

Force a full refresh for the site. This can be achieved by pressing CTRL + F5 keys at the same time on your favourite browser (Firefox, Chrome, Explorer, etc.)

Clear the temporary cache and cookies on your browser to make sure that you have the most recent version of the web page. For instructions choose your browser :

Fix DNS Problems

A Domain Name System (DNS) allows a site IP address (192.168.x.x) to be identified with words (*.com) in order to be remembered more easily, like a phonebook for websites. This service is usually provided by your ISP.

Clear your local DNS cache to make sure that you grab the most recent cache that your ISP has. For Windows - (Start > Command Prompt > type "ipconfig /flushdns" and hit enter). For details choose your operating system :

If you can access a website at office or from a 3G network yet it's not working on your computer, it is a good idea to use an alternative DNS service other than your ISPs. OpenDNS or Google Public DNS are both excellent and free public DNS services.

Check our help page for step-by-step instructions on how to change your DNS.

Kevin Pachev · 15 October 2013 - 09:29

It's down for me too and hasn't been working properly for a while - especially during the last few days. Could it have something to do with all the commercial spyware and secret advertising on the site these days? Anyway, I agree with the other poster, if they haven't already...."REA""L Couchsurfers should probably move site to Couchsurfing has been in decline for years. Nothing lasts forever. It's time for change!

Charmaine Weltz · 15 October 2013 - 09:01

It's still down for me.

Jake Stanning · 15 October 2013 - 08:45

Getting '502 Bad Gateway'

Ann Wilson · 8 May 2013 - 07:36

Unable to reply to a couch request. Getting '502 Bad Gateway' error message. Any ideas?

James Town · 8 May 2013 - 07:27

bad gateway 502 according to my friend working in web dev it could be a problem of load balancing in the servers

Marcus Scaramanga · 8 May 2013 - 06:40

Home page seems to work, but when 'finding a couch' page gives 502 error... any thoughts?

Richard Jeffery Levett · 8 May 2013 - 06:06

Same got main page and 502 error for anything else

Jeff Quigley · 8 May 2013 - 02:53

It's down again. Shows the main page but nothing else will load. Even clicking on log out gives me a "bad gateway 502" error... This website is really going down the tubes :(

Merilyn Fenton · 9 January 2013 - 11:42

it redirects you to and when you try to access messages or send emails, the site logs you out

Gideon De Laune · 12 December 2012 - 07:54

Correction on last post. CS purchased ZenDesk software, so the issue lies with CS, and not with ZenDesk. My apologies to ZenDesk, who called me back in 5 minutes with great info and customer support.

Gideon De Laune · 12 December 2012 - 07:49

very difficult logging in to specific areas of the site, such as 'GROUPS'. New website revamp is full of problems and I suspect increased users logging on to complain. ZenDesk is now handling their 'customer service questions' and is also not able to 'connect' on their response to CS users. Most frustrating.

Karin Björk · 22 October 2012 - 05:30

i currently can't connect to it

Pete Coyi · 3 October 2012 - 06:29
