About Wimdu

Wimdu is one of the world’s leading online marketplaces for private accommodation, providing a smart alternative for guests dissatisfied with expensive, impersonal hotels. The concept utilises the increasingly popular sharing economy model: Wimdu enables hosts to generate additional income on a spare room or empty apartment, while offering guests high quality, great-value accommodation suitable for all budgets.

Founded by Arne Bleckwenn and Hinrich Dreiling in 2011, Wimdu has seen remarkable growth and now lists more than 300,000 properties in more than 140 countries worldwide. From Berlin to Beijing, guests can book top quality accommodation with more space, privacy and flexibility than a standard hotel room – and at better rates!
