HSN - Homestay network uses a variable fee structure for host fee. These fees vary based on a number of parameters, including:
- the city the student is to live in;
- the nature of the students stay;
- the university or college where they are studying;
- the inclusions required by our contract with a partner organisation; etc
HSN - Homestay Network staff will discuss the fee structure at the time the student is offered to you and again when the student is confirmed. How ongoing payments to host will be made will be discussed, confirmed and agreed with you for the duration of students stay.
Hosts are never permitted to charge ‘extra’s’. This means that hosts can not charge extra for a student to have a longer shower, use their bicycle, lifts to or from the train etc.
Internet fees are never paid to the host by HSN - Homestay Network, hosts are permitted to charge up to a maximum of $10 per week for students to access the host's wifi.
