Looking for a room? You're able to sort by whether you're a musician or music fan, if you'd like a place to practice, what type of music you like and/or what instruments you'll be using. Once you've selected a place and read the description from the host, you book your room!

Fill out all the information including address, price, descriptions of what exactly is offer, and post pictures.  Clarify if it's a place for musicians and/or music fans, if they'll allowed to practice their music there(and quiet hours!), and also what type of music group you'd enjoy having stay. Post the room and start connecting with traveling musicians!
