Help us budget for scouting L.A.

What is the current hospitality exchange network of choice?

Around 2007 and 2008 I was quite active on couchsurfing.org (now couchsurfing.com), both in staying and hosting, and I loved it. In the next few months I may have the opportunity to start hosting again but I've found a lot of not so nice commentary of the couchsurfing organisation (particularly their terms of service, which do make me very uncomfortable), the website has gotten much harder to use and most of my contacts there are no longer active -- and there seems to be an issue with dormant accounts generally. Can any hospitality exchanging mefites give me the up to date low down on couchsurfing and its alternatives? [more inside]

Inexpensive & save place to stay near Convention Center in Minneapolis?

I am going to be in Minneapolis for a conference this August and am looking for a place to stay. I usually enjoy staying in smaller, affordable hotels, BnB's or hostels. It would be great if the Convention Center was easy to reach, either on food or by public transport. I will be traveling alone and won't know anyone at the conference. So it's important to me to find a nice place to stay where I feel safe and can relax after a long day. Do you have suggestions?

Melbourne Commonwealth Games Accomodation

Aussie Aussie Aussie Oi Oi Oi! My wife and I are heading off to the Commonwealth Games next year in Melbourne. We're waiting for confirmation of our tickets, but in the meantime have seen the prices of accomodation in Melbourne during this period skyrocket beyond our price range. Any suggestions for how to obtain decent (AU$150-$200 per night) accomodation during events like this? Or will we simply have to bow before the forces of unbridled capitalism?
