Airbnb Hell

Guests and Hosts BEWARE!

AirBNB has grown too big and corrupt to care about the guests and hosts it is supposed to be supporting. Read airbnb reviews and complaints here before using airbnb!


We just received a very interesting insider tip from a whistle-blower who currently works for Airbnb!  They said everyone should call 855-424-7262 and ask these three questions:  

1) If User Policing is going to ghost their account

2) Why more than 1300 accounts have been hacked in the last month

3) How many friends they have to have on Facebook before the algorithm will automatically accept it as their online verification.
