We have really, really enjoyed the entire AirBnB experience as we planned our first trip to Ireland - from exploring all the different AirBnB homes, apartments & rooms to the different local experiences available in each area. We were impressed with quick communications from potential hosts and all the helpful tips & suggestions they shared with us. It was even more fun when we met our hosts and had tea or coffee and a chat with them! The hospitality of AirBnB hosts is fantastic - they all made us feel welcome as soon as we arrived. Looking forward to more AirBnB travels ahead! Fairly certain using a conventional hotel will be at the bottom of our options list :-)
Amazing much better than when it first started
I have used Airbnb extensively. I love it. It makes staying in real places around the world so much easier than it used to be. Five or ten years ago, it would take a lot of luck and grace to be in a real home while traveling, instead of a hotel/motel/hostel. What’s so significant is that Airbnb turns traveling into living. What I mean is that life is full. I can cook, relax in a living room, get some work done, and more. Real life. And traveling. A great combination 🙏🏽 Thank you!
I stumbled upon AirBnB a few years ago while in a discussion about accommodations in Boston during The Boston Marathon with a colleague at school who is an avid runner. My seasonally vacant garage top Loft apartment was the perfect fit she said. I’ve never looked back. AirBnB has changed so many things for me; all for the better. Great concept. Great App.
Why can’t you view peoples profile on the phone app?
My experience trying to find a place to stay near an event has been terrible. People do not keep up with their profiles and they shouldn't be allocated an entire 24 hrs for requests 2 days out. We were stood up for approx 5 homes and didn't receive responses from the majority of those. People who list air mattresses as "beds" are misleading and they should have standardized questions to tell the entire truth in their posts. The mandatory profile setting should explain the bed situation and photos which show the entire layout not just a random lawn photo. Also for profiles with no activity for a month they should be automatically disenrolled. One lady moved from her home and didn't take the profile down therefore wasting our time. All of the others "failed to update their availability" therefore wasting even more time on a short turnaround booking. And the price gouging has been disgusting to deal with; it should be regulated so people cannot take advantage of events in town. Robbing people of good money for some shabby 1 bedroom apt is appaling. At this point we have no place to stay and I probably won't use Air BnB again if standardization isn't implemented. I used this service in the beginning when it wasn't a forum for money grubbing swindlers but this has turned into another example of greed and a good service becoming "commercialized."
I heart AB
Tried to get a partial refund with an issue with our airbnb however the host was being stubborn and there’s no phone call or email to get in contact with Airbnb through their app. Horrible experience, rather stick to hotels. Better chance of the room being clean and having no mold etc
all in subject
I consider AirBnB one of my travel essentials. I’ve enjoyed all my convenient stays in homes across the country. In cities that run out of hotel space or seem over priced - AirBnB often provides an affordable and convenient option. The reviews make all the difference. There are exotic choices provided here as well. I look forward to trying something a little unorthodox - like a tree house or boat at some point (when I’m not traveling for business).
Sometimes the app is really slow update messages read, etc. great app otherwise
On iOS 11, iPhone 8. I tried removing my ID and the app says it was successfully removed, however, going back to my profile it shows up again with the option to remove it yet again. Please fix.
Estoy muy contenta con Airbnb Las preguntas son resueltas Inmediatamente y los pagos al día Tener la App en mi teléfono es importante para estar conectada con los huéspedes en todo momento Gracias Yal e hijos
App crashes, times out, makes you have to re-save info over & over. Your help desk was very good the other day about issue. Tried downloading my photo ID (front & back) over & over and it would time out on me. The app makes it very hard to do business trying to rent from owner's of property.
The worst, takes about an hour to deal with, forces you to install their stupid app for booking. Nobody wants your app on their phone!
Airbnb mudou minha vida pois agora alugo minha casa sem burocracia!
I love the AirBnB service. They do a good job of making sure you have good people in your home.
I’m using app as a host and it is amazing. I can configure every small detail from the app without the need to open my laptop. The only thing is that it’s not optimized very well for iOS. Read messages show up as unread. The app crashes occasionally. Because of that 4 stars.
We enjoyed our stay here very much enough room for the 6 of us and convenient for shop and transportation. Host is very helpful. Thank you.
The bugs within this app had caused delayed communication between me and the host.
With the latest update, I am no longer able to login to both of the separate rentals I host. Would like to be able to switch between multiple accounts i keep separate for tax purposes.
Easy to work as both a guest and host.
Great app that is practical and easy to use
This has been an incredible! We have a lot to learn being new hosts but we've enjoyed the experience. We are constantly brainstorming new ideas. We've just come up with the bath bombs as a gift for our guests. We added pastries along with the coffee and thinking along the lines of experiences. It's a gradual growth. It's a job but it's fun. We look forward to meeting more people and improving our process. Great idea AirBNB!!
It’s an amazing app with quality data and algorithms to help hosts figure out how to offer their property to great guests.
It is great!
Airbnb has been AMAZING for us! It is very easy to set up your site, and they are always there to support you if needed! We are enjoying our hosting experience! Stephanie The Fan 4 Life House La Quinta, Ca
The Airbnb app is very easy to use. I am the host and have four units currently on Airbnb and I have never had any issue dealing with the app. I highly recommend this app
We love traveling in hosting! Airbnb is a wonderful thing – meeting new people and making new friends.
Airbnb has completely transformed travel. I’m staying in a cool flat in London while I host guests in San Francisco. The app is so comprehensive and easy to use. I love that you can seamlessly switch between travel and host. The host options are many and VERY helpful. I’m editing my posting while waiting for the Tube. So happy with this app.
We could not do business without Airbnb
Airbnb is BEST!! I booked through VRBO and after I rented an apartment and it was not livable with brown running water as 1 of the problems & VRBO only gave me half my money back. They stole $800 bucks of my money sonIll never use them again!!!
Nice update for hosts to the My Stats view! Provides the historical detail that previously required copying and pasting everything into a spreadsheet Update: 10/17/2017 Past and future months under the My Stats view has not worked for some time now. When you tap previous or future months, nothing happens...Will update star rating once this issue is fixed.
There is a learning curve during which a new host must learn to follow their instincts and be selective about who they rent to. I find that it’s better to miss out on a rental than to take a chance on someone that doesn’t seem to fit. Almost every one of my guests was a delight to host! Airbnb hosting is a seamless relationship that I can recommend to anyone. It’s fun and profitable.
Love Airbnb! Excellent service, easy to use with a clean look. Thanks!
Airbnb is a life saver- great way to travel - great way to rent- So much better than hotels, I love being able to travel with my dogs
I had a very frustrating time trying to book a hotel in Italy. I could not book without giving a picture of my government identification and also a picture of myself. I was unable to do this without installing the app. It took a long time and was very frustrating.
I tried to reserve a house , they will not honor it because I had no ratings yet. This is my first time to use it. How can I have a rating? I already sent my picture and drivers license. This is not a good company. I went to home away from home and no problem. I paid with my credit card and I got the place. Thank you Home away from home. I hope you’re not related to Air BnB.
Does not let me click an option for confirming email. (Get a message, phone call)
the room I booked ended up being fraudulent. I called Airbnb at 7pm when I found out. They promised to call me back with in 30min with a solution. I didn't get a response until 11pm(4hrs later) after I called them back a third time. they finally told me there was nothing they could do for me and just to "book another room." They didn't even offer my money back. I had to demand it. I ended up paying more for a hotel.
Airbnb USED TO BE great. Not sure what changed but no longer the case. After going through a verification (in spite of being a long time user) process that cost me hundreds of dollars in hotel bills waiting to for the red tape, six weeks ago, I went to book another Airbnb to escape the horrendous air in Marin for the weekend. They said I needed MORE verification. So I wrote them explaining I had just rented an Airbnb a few weeks ago and time was of import as the air we are currently breathing is hazardous. They sent a form letter in return. I'm pretty amazed at their callous indifference. I've never had a hotel make me wait three days before I could book. I'm done with this company.
Do not trust this website guys , I was scammed out of 800$ on here , only gave it one star because I had too
Tried to sign up. It said I wasn’t old enough. Nov 1 1953 wasn’t old enough. Oh well Won’t bother with this service
I was recommended by multiple people to use this business for accommodations in Florida. My experience was horrendous. I completed all the appropriate steps as listed on their site, yet was unable to reserve a house. After multiple calls, I was told I needed a photo of myself. I did that. Still could not place a reservation. More calls to their customer support. I then learned I had to submit front and back photos of my drivers license or complete passport photos. None of my friends who use this site regularly have ever had to do this step. This step is not listed on line as a requirement in their simple 5 steps to get started. I gave in and submitted my ID photos. Still unable to get a reservation. Multiple calls, long waiting times with the response being....that my problem was being submitting to higher up tech support and some one would call me back. No call backs ever happened. I was emailed instead, so no human had to talk with me. I was told that my credit card would be billed a small amount and I was required to show picture proof of it on my credit card statement. At that point I had enough. I should not have to show anyone my credit card statement. Again, none of my friends were required to do this. All that personal data is not needed... and I’m now risking identity theft. I spent a total of 8 hours that day trying to get a reservation that never happened, wasted a day and ruined my birthday. I did however, receive a follow up call 2 days later asking if I still wanted to reserve accommodations with them. I nicely asked them to delete my account and all my personal information. Hopefully, they did. I can promise you.... I will never use this business again nor will I ever recommend them to anyone. Biggest mistake I’ve made in a long time.
We rented our house out on airbnb for 3 years, hosted hundreds of groups with a 4.9 star rating when all of a sudden airbnb canceled all of our upcoming bookings and our listing with no explanation or reason. We never had a single issue and many guests returned to stay at our home multiple times. Don't trust or put any faith in airbnb; it's been over a month now and we still have no idea why. Do not trust them with your property or your guests. Use VRBO.com instead or findyourrentals.com (no service fee on find your rentals.com
I'm running out of words! How many times I've been ditched and betrayed by Airbnb homes! All shady haunted houses which no one will ever live in! We paid and left many houses all shady creepy houses! I have finally uninstalled the app bloody bulls ! I would not suggest anyone to book any house from this app all ARE HAUNTED AND CREEPY SHADY
I love using Air BnB, it allows me to utilize my house in the more effective way. However, the app keeps having issues. It almost always can't upload and usually has a "network error". If they could fix that so I can manage my house and communicate with guest better, I'd appreciate that.
Verifying your ID (by scanning a driver’s license or a passport with your phone’s camera) is completely non functional, yet you have to do that in order to make a reservation. I tried deleting & reinstalling the app. No go. I did an internet search on the topic. No solution. Tried to find a way to reach Airbnb. Not one. I ended up going old school & making my reservation on my laptop & uploading pics of my id. All in all, it was almost enough to make me walk away from this reservation.
Be careful with Airbnb. The app is misleading because it doesn't show full details like it would a browser. First time using Airbnb and my last because of how they handled a simple refund on a host who hid the fact that the bed was an air mattress. Allows for discrimination towards black people and minorities. Never even got a chance to book since nobody approved my requests.
