you can also always offer this option to the people from the o-platz movement. they have open meetings every sunday at 3pm and in general, they are available daily from 5 - 9 pm at oranienplatz. they provide a network with sleeping places for refugees, also on a short term base (1-2 nights) and are always happy about support.

You can also call your local Sozialamt and tell them that you have a spare room and would like to host a refugee! My local Sozialamt has created a special email account just for arranging housing for refugees, so I think they are often happy to help with this, and happy when local residents offer a spare room or even an entire flat to refugees.
