Frequently Asked Questions
Who are the guests I will be hosting?

With Hosting Power you are guaranteed​ to only host students or young professionals. These guests are ​busy and self-sufficient, who study in a school, college or university or work in a company. 

All our guests are aged between 18 and 35 years old.

Do you verify the guests before booking?

Yes we do a full guest verification for you. ​​We always do an ID and payment check.

In addition to that, we verify that their studies, internship or work in Ireland are already confirmed.  

How is the rent calculated?

All our rents are indexed on the current market prices, so you are guaranteed to pay a fair rent!

And don't forget, all your bills and WiFi are included and your rent is fixed so it can't be increased during your stay.

Do I need to provide breakfast or meals?

Not at all! Our guests are self-sufficient and so they will buy their own food and cook their own meals.

Using the kitchen, guests will need to respect the House Rules set-up in place (that we will provide), such as leaving the kitchen clean after use.

Is the guest allowed to bring a visitor to the house?

No. For the peace of mind and comfort of everyone, your guest won't be allowed to bring anyone to the house at any time during their stay at your home.

Please note that this policy is part of the House Rules we have created from feedback from hundreds of hosts which covers everyday situations while you are hosting.
You and your guest will receive a copy of these House Rules for each booking. 

Will I pay tax on the income I receive through the rent?

No, the great news is that the income you will make through the rent will be free of tax, provided this income does not exceed the limit of 14 000 euros in a tax year.

This tax relief is called the ‘rent-a-room relief scheme’ and works for rooms and self-contained units, such as a basement flat or a converted garage attached to your home. To be valid, the occupants must be using the room on a long-term basis, such as renting a room to a student for the academic year or for a one-month professional course, which is the case of all our guests!
