This review paper makes an effort to briefly discuss the conceptual framework and emergence of homestays and the global & Indian trends in homestays. Focused reviews of existing literature has been undertaken to evolve perspectives on primary drivers (motivations) and barriers (challenges) faced by homestay owners in different countries of the world. It was noticed that as in other businesses, money was not the sole driver in this industry. It also appears that the study of motivations and challenges faced by homestay hosts’, particularly that of urban areas remains a little researched topic.

Keywords: Homestay, Homestay Operator/Host, Motivation and Challenges, Emerging Trend, Tourism and Hospitality
