We regularly receive requests from various media outlets seeking to interview individuals in certain key demographics or geographical locations who have had negative experiences with Airbnb.

By default, all members of the press may use, quote, and reference the content found on so long as they refer or link back to us as the source.

If you are a reporter or other member of the press seeking to interview any of the individual authors of the stories found on this site, please contact us with an introduction telling us about your project/assignment and what magazine, newspaper, blog or other publication / production company you represent.  Also please take a moment to search the site (using the magnifying glass on the right side of the header menu) to find stories reliant to your inquiry, and include links to the stories you find most interesting.  Even though very few of our authors elect to state their contact information publicly, for fairly obvious reasons, we do have private email addresses on file for most authors, and we will attempt to contact them on your behalf for an interview request.

We will never share the email addresses of our authors without their express permission, we will only email up to 15 of them on your behalf asking them if they would be interested in speaking with the press about their story.  If so, the authors may reach out to you directly regarding.

Since we have such a wide variety of authors and readers from over 130 countries every month, we do not post press requests or banners to the entire site asking them to contact a given press agent for comment.  We feel that would be annoying to most people.  However, we are willing to post legitimate press requests on social media including facebook and twitter upon request.

Interview requests may also be made of the Founder of Airbnb Hell, and will generally be conducted via email or phone conversation.
