Years have passed since that Winter I discovered the AirBnB revolution of happy people sharing homes. I’ve seen hundreds of AirBnB guests, and now, they really sound different, sometimes really annoying, making you feel like your appartment is a Deluxe hotel for 40$/night. Expectations increased for lowered prices, as the platform became really popular. But the whole point of AirbBnB wasn’t business at all. It was meant for home sharing. We may even have contributed to make AirBnB more commercial, as hosts. But popularity killed the simplicity in the end….

Airbnb: Unethical, Liars, Cheats

I have been hosting since the end of December. I had 10 five star reviews. Yesterday, I cancelled my account. Airbnb wanted to penalize me for making some guests that were trashing my house leave. They decided to offset my next rental with a charge for making the “guests” leave. I suffered damages to my property, emotional distress, and even had to call the police on them. Yet, Airbnb treated me as though I was the criminal. Airbnb hides negative reviews. I posted one on these people and it never appeared. As a host, there is no way of knowing exactly how awful your guests may be which is very dangerous. Their telephone support is awful, and their reps sound brain dead. I even had a bad experience as a guest, renting a condo in Mexico for 3 weeks that was uninhabitable due to excessive noise. All Airbnb cares about is Airbnb. STAY AWAY.
