Who can host on hīven?
Local residents only! Hīven is a local service for communities to share resources in their own neighborhood. Hīven hosts are folks working from home or looking to make their home more affordable.
How much do I get paid?
Hosts get a monthly revenue from bookings, less 15% of our service fee, plus potential rewards. The host’s monthly revenue from bookings is the total number of hours booked at a Hive times the booking base rate of the Hive (subject to location and type as indicated below). On the top of bookings, the host can provide add-ons (printer, meeting room, breakfast,…) which is a great way to boost your hīven revenue.
The base rate $ per hour booked per guest depends on the type of Hive and its location, it is subject to updates. The type of Hive varies depending on its size, type and quality.
