Do read a person's profile carefully before requesting for a place to stay. It's basic etiquette to read their profile and to know their requests/requirements before making any inquiries. Do show your appreciation to your host with a gift or a meal. It doesn't have to be something expensive. A positive reference on his/her CS profile would be good too. Do spend time chatting and hanging out with your host. Hosts love to meet people and you may be able to learn some interesting and useful stuff from them. Do keep your host's place clean and tidy.
