Terrible Bed, Dildo in Nightstand: Harsh Review

We booked a stay in an Airbnb for four nights in Toronto. The location was great. However, there were a few major issues:

  1. The bed was terrible. There was no box spring or support for the mattress, so it sagged badly.
  2. Not an inch of closet space or a single drawer was available.
  3. The apartment was not very clean.
  4. Living room was totally open and exposed for the neighbors to see; there were no blinds or curtains.
  5. The patio advertised in the listing didn’t have any furniture on it at all.
  6. Light bulbs went out and there were no replacements.
  7. The nightstand had dildos, vibrators and owner’s underwear inside.

I gave an average review on Airbnb. They cut my review and only posted the positive: the location. How would the next renter know about any of the problems? This is the second time I had a problem with an Airbnb rental. I’m not likely to rent through them again.

  1. “They cut my review and only posted the positive: the location.”
    Thats IMPOSSIBLE so that seems unlikely what you’ve written here.
    Also you chose to review average with dildo’s and underwear next to the bed and the place being dirty and missing furniture… Average score? A normal person would have scored 1 or 2 for this which again makes your story seem highly unlikely.

    • My story may seem unlikely to you, but it’s totally true. You are correct – I should have given it a 1 or 2. But I feared it might be eliminated as an outlier. The lack of closet and drawer space was an annoyance. The dildo amusing. I’m 67 years old and not easily grossed out. And the location was great and the apartment was pretty.

  2. How about this: LINK.THE.LISTING.HERE. Then there might actually be a chance for the next renter to know about any of the problems….

    • Hi Poledra,

      Whenever those submitting stories send us the link to the listing, we do include them on the site. However, that wasn’t the case this time.
