I have been a host for three months. Started to help pay for my sons tuition! I love being part of the Air B B community! I really only have one big complaint witch is that there site is not user friendly! It can be very frustrating trying to navigate it! When i needed help it took me three days of screwing around on site before i finally got a phone number from another user! When i called help like they were very helpful and resolved my issue very fast but it was quite a headache trying to get to that point! The people i spoke to were very nice and i was happy with result but wish it had not been so difficult to get help! The site needs to be more user friendly and way easier to navigate all around. As a host i find it hard almost every time i have to use it for anything but accept or decline! My one bit of advice make site more user friendly! Wish I was booked more often as well but i am hoping with time that will happen! Other than that I’m very happy with hosting and being part of Air B B.
No integrity Company
Company doesn’t verify the host can legally lease the property to guests. The company could write an algorithm to verify the host owns the property since ownership information of all properties in America are public information (worldwide listing is another issue). This would essentially drop over 50-75% of their listings in America since most property owners are unaware of their property being used for short term stays. More importantly, the tenant has not been granted authorization to host the property or room. This company chooses not to due to greed. Airbnb keep being pleading ignorance of this major issue for the $$$$$’s. Just like any other old, stodgy company: Chase the all mighty dollar and make as much money as possible. who cares about the legitimacy of how we earn those dollars.
Saves money at a cost of your time
Airbnb does save you money in comparison to hotels but something always goes wrong. You are dealing with unprofessional people renting out their bedrooms like hotels. Advice I would give would be to bring your own towels and pillows. Because your hosts’ will be gross. Airbnb hosts almost always uses dirty, yellow, sometimes smelly, old pillows for their guests. The shower towels are used and old. Some rooms are truly just plain gross. Or it’s in a bad area but the room is nice so they have good reviews unlike a hotel you would know by rating and you can at least feel some what more safe being inside a hotel. It’s nice when it’s a time share being Airbnb’d out.
