What Spanish sites (i.e. in Spain) have you guys found that have picked up some of this slack? I know of Spanish apt rental sites and intercambio sites but I'm wondering if there's a site out there that covers both territories? In the past, when Loquo was still around, Craigslist Spain was pretty weak. I wonder if that has changed.

Which sites are you now using to find intercambios and activity partners and "rooms-for-rent" in Spain since Loquo went bust?
I only found out about this the other week when I tried to access Loquo and ended up on e-bay! I didn't know Loquo had gone bust - do you have any details? And what is e-bay doing with them? They seem to have got rid of a craig's list style site and replaced it with e-bay - why?

It seems there is a bit of a gap in the Spanish market for a Craig's list style website.
