    Our overall experience with Airbnb over the past year & half has been a positive one. Our business has been growing due to our exposure with them. We’ve only had a couple of issues to date that could use some attention. First with the knowledge of the customer/tech service. The app keeps track of all the items necessary to achieve the “SuperHost” status telling you to keep up the good work your headed in the right direction for the next quarter review but doesn’t tell you unless you dig much deeper that you have to be with Airbnb for a full 4 quarters as part of the eligibility process. We didn’t find this out until the third Airbnb representative, several hours of phone conversation later & months after us believing we should have already been SuperHosts. The second item pertains to the property search process. It would be nice to be able to search by property name. As hosts it would be nice to tell a potential guest to just put our property name in a Airbnb search bar verses an area so they could be taken directly to our property. Also Airbnb could dig a little deeper to find out what particular areas they are representing are being referred to as. For example Florida has designations such as “Southeast Florida”. Might be easier for a guest to find what their looking for on the map if the search results were narrowed down on the map to match instead of being so broad in certain markets.
  • Loving Airbnb

    By Cindy from Palm Desert, CA
    We used Airbnb during our recent holiday in Kona, HI and stayed in 3 different private units. Each was wonderful and had everything we needed including the loan of beach chairs, beach towels and umbrellas. We didn’t cook, but each unit was well appointed with everything we would need and next time we will enjoy creating our own meals at the units and eat out less. We enjoyed visiting briefly with each owner, they were all really nice but not intrusive at all. We went on two excursions recommended and booked through Airbnb. They were great and good value. I would recommend the Wild Dolphin & Snorkeling adventure with Captain Chase and the Local Brews & Poke Flights with Lottie and a wonderful chef and fun bartender at a beautiful golf course. They were both awesome and each was a small group of 5-6 people allowing us to ask our hosts questions and visit with the other guests. We will likely use Airbnb more often, it was super easy to book the units, more fun and less expensive than a hotel. When they say ‘Super Host’ believe it, book it and relax. I’m a fan and sharing our experiences with friends. Mahalo!
  • Health and safety issues and lack of customer support for guest

    By Samurisam77
    As a disabled person with a chronic autoimmune condition I travel frequently to see my doctors from my home base. I had preferred to use Airbnb because of having the comfort of a home like environment away from home less traffic than at a hotel and kitchen/laundry access however lately I have been so distraught as some hosts misrepresent their posting are aggressive to the point of putting my health and safety at risk. I’m left at the mercy of hosts and having to protect myself, finding myself looking for alternate accommodation at last minute and having no control over what I can expect from my stay. There is no way for Airbnb to verify if what hosts properties are like, if they have a mental health issue or if anything happens then one is left calling the police scrambling for another place in middle of the night and poorly reimbursed for ones distress even by way for a refund even when made unsafe or for services not rendered. It shouldn’t be like this I have found some really awesome hosts but their should be better customer service and protection especially for disabled guests and those with serious medical condition. I don’t know if I can continue to use Airbnb but am hoping this message reaches the management and something will be done to change the experiences guests can have and better help in a situation when things go wrong.
  • Why yes, I would like to stay 30 minutes away from my destination

    By Dustpal
    Something is wrong with the search engine airbnb uses. I put in a City and great, there's like 800 places to pick from. Problem is that most of these locations are 30 minutes away from where I actually want to be. As a traveler, this is mostly inconvenient. So then you have to waste your time checking through each posting to see which one is actually close to where you want to be. Please add a distance filter from the city center to fix this mess. Other room finding applications know how to manage distance, so airbnb is way behind. Aside from that, either the posting is falsified by the host or the engine is misreading metadata, but some city locations at the top, don't match what is on the map. I feel like this must be the host lying about the location to try and get people to go to their location, but airbnb should just pull the city location from the map. If it does already, then it's broken. Lastly, an enhancement request to the usability. Since I travel to the same place many times, I'm looking at the same locations a lot. Of course I have my favorites, but I'd like an opposite list of locations to avoid. Maybe I read a bad review or the neighborhood was not to my preference, then I don't want to have to figure that out each time I run a search.
  • Great UI, fees only problem

    By LoveSWVA
    Call me a critic but that’s what I do. I really like the way Airbnb laid out the user interface. It’s intuitive, perky, fun and easy to figure out if you’re not a mobile genius. I especially like the buttons that switches me from hosting to traveling. I’m all about using Airbnb for both, however you corporates in the city who made thing want your cake and eat it too. Might think about reading your fees a bit lest another competitor comes along to sweep your market out from under you. We’re not loyal to you, just to technology that helps us do what we want. If you have forgotten that you’ll be toast. So here’s my suggestion. When a host gets to Superhost status why don’t you reward them? Or even create another level after Superhost, like Grand Masterhost, and cut the fees by a 1/3rd for them. After all, they’ve made a ton for you by then, no? Good service demands good software, this is true, however, don’t bend over your customers who get virtually nothing (existing coupon program is... well, less than ideal). All this to explain my four star rating instead of five. Still some work to do to keep this critic happy. Cheery-O!
  • So far it’s been good, but needs a little work!

    So far it’s been good, but still has some work to be done On the app ect. sometimes the app crashes or takes a while to update. I get messages way later like a day or 2 later on guests asking me questions. I did notice that it has not been sending the check In information to the guests so they get trapped out side the gate for a while because the messages don’t come in to my phone right when they message. Also I’ve been getting guests having a hard time keeping the booking I get them confirmed and then a day later it’s canceled on them. Guest call me a lot trying to figure out how to book. Maybe make the booking a little easier. Also if you are in a state that they pay the tax for you make sure to look in to it cause they only pay the state tax not the city tax. Wish they could pay that also each quarter for me. I give Airbnb over all a 4 cause it’s good just not yet a 5 yet. Work on app a little more and maybe put a system in that is like doc u sign. that way it just automatically sends the booking waver that we need each guest to sign so I don’t have to do it manually.
  • App is so-so

    By ice57
    This is a review of Airbnb the app, not the business model. I’m all in on the business model. Here are some things the app need some work on: if you have a slow speed connection, it becomes impossible to log into the app if for some reason you need to do that (changing accounts, for instance). Especially if you’ve connected it to your Google account. No method seems to work if you find yourself in this situation, and let’s face it some of the properties in Airbnb have slow or no access (tethering your iPhone, like I am tonight). Right now, I cannot log into the Airbnb app, but I can access and log into virtually every other app on my iPad. This review is a good example of being online with a slow connection, and yet I can’t log in to the Airbnb app. Also, the app always opens in search mode, even if I am on an active trip with Airbnb. It would be nice, even mandatory, if the app would recognize that you’re on a trip staying at one of their host houses and drop you right into that trip when you open. Why? Simple.. I am trying to contact my host and every time I open the app, I have to find my trip, click on it and click “contact host”. That is something that should be improved.

    I’ve been an Airbnb host and an Airbnb guest for over 3 1/2 years. I have hosted over 160 guests from all over the world, and all experiences have been wonderful. Not one bad experience. The places that we have stayed have been clean, friendly.... just exactly what we needed for where we were and what we’re doing. Again, as a host, I enjoy sharing my hometown with visitors and making them feel comfortable and welcome while enjoying the area. The extra money has been greatly appreciated as we live in an expensive area. Now with my husband retired, I am able to help with our expensive taxes and utilities, not to mention my health insurance which is extremely expensive since I am no longer covered by my husband’s employment. I am grateful for the opportunity to be able to contribute and be creative as a host at the same time, I give Airbnb my highest recommendation and appreciation to Airbnb and what this wonderful company stands for and look forward to a long and rewarding relationship as a Super Host and a guest. Thank you so much, Airbnb!
  • Cancellation by host

    2
    By ehowle
    Was recently cancelled on for one of our trips. There was absolutely no recourse. I went to your q&a and found out you have a pretty strict set of rules for canceling on the host, but no real strict set of rules on hosts cancelling on guests. This is absolutely horrible. The host only loses the cancellation. The guests lose all that they had invested in the trip - airfare, other places to stay, any reservations and down payments on things like prearranged things or trips such as boating, kayaking, entry fees, etc. Also I could not leave an Airbnb review on the host. This is absolutely uncalled for. Both the host and Airbnb need to know the consequences of this action. And others need to know that the host cancels on guests. Airbnb really needs to rethink this policy. If a host cancel, they should be responsible for any costs that the guests incurred. I have heard that hosts will cancel if they get a higher rental fee. Don’t know if that happened to me, but that should absolutely be forbidden and if one cancellation occurs, the host should be moved to the lowest ranking. They must be discouraged from doing any cancellation. They have to be running this like a business. The excuse I got was the host had to leave town and could not find someone to clean it before the last guest before me. Really poor excuse!!
  • Good App, but could improve with some bug fixes

    By guesswho!!
    Very nice App. Easy to book and communicate with host. But (the current version) could use some bug fixes. I use the App on my iPad Pro with the most recent iOS an when I scroll through my search results, the movement is extremely slowly, sometimes gets even stuck. Something is wrong here. Search filters are also not perfect. When I set for example my limit at $200 per night, the App shows me also accommodations above $200. Also, it would be great if the location filter would be narrower. If I search for housing in a certain town I don‘t want to see housing from near-by towns. Unfortunately, one sometimes only find out once you check the map, because the title often does not tell the location. Maybe adding a distance option would help (how far from target destination the search should be expanded). Additional comment: What I also dont like is that I cant remove my credit card information from my account after payment (not through the App and also not through the online account). I wished they would support Apple Pay. I don‘t like to keep my credit card information all over the internet.
