(Note: none of these sites or companies sponsors me or pay for this spot. I just recommend them because I have used them and they have been helpful). 

Hospitality networks  offer free home stay or local people to hang out with as long as  you have an account on their websites and both parties agree. It doesn’t need to be reciprocal. Couchsurfing is my favorite one.
