Airbnb Positive Reviews
Loving AirbnbWe 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!.Version: 18.19
Great service - serviceable appI have used AirBnB between 3-4 times per year for travel. It has been a great service and rarely have I been disappointed with the homes, cabins, and condos we have enjoyed over the past couple of years. The app, however is lacking not so much in its function but what it provides for searching options.
One of the first things people search for when booking accommodations besides location is the room type. And part of that is what type of bed. I can search for number of bedrooms, number of beds ... even the bed height as an accessibility option, but not the bed size (!?). Thinking it was just me not being savvy, I find multiple posts on AirBnBs own forum of people who have raised the same issue over the course of the past 3 years. Devs, if you read this, please review the basic filtering and sorting options for this app and add this as a feature request for your next agile sprint or whatever you do to update this program. I appreciate your respect for those who need accessibility options, but the rest of your customer base might appreciate a fundamental filtering feature added, that literally every other travel and booking site uses as a base feature.
AverageOverall, I’ve had good experience with Airbnb, and I like the general set up. I do have two major major issues, and that is 1). with the tax collection. My county and total sales tax are 9%, But they only take out 6% and refuse to fix it. This causes me to lose so much money because I have to take it out of my profit and then file with the county and do my state taxes through an accountant because the system is too complex... Major inconvenience... and 2). This is my 2nd home. I do not want to rent it to just “anyone“. VRBO is better because they at least let you see the person‘s full name, and you can Google their information to make sure they are a real person, etc. There are so
Many scam emails. I have no problem with an AirBNB traveler who has previously had a review, but when a New, unknown person tries to books and gives me no information at all regarding their group or info on their trip, and all I have is a “first name”- it’s unnerving. I think they should try to protect the homeowners much better than what they do right now. It’s very one-sided towards the renter- where I would like much more of a mutual accountability. Hiding the pictures and last name is also not OK in my book..Version: 19.09
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..Version: 18.24
♥️AirbnbI’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!.Version: 17.44.1
First experience with Air BnB is so-soI am traveling for just under a month and am using Air BnB for my travels. I am satisfied with most of my stats so far except one. This particular place was so dingy and run down that I immediately knew I did not want to stay there. Right away I contacted the host asking for the payment of my remaining two nights back so I could secure someplace else. She refused. So I contacted Air BnB and they too so long in figuring things out that I was well on to my next location by the time they said they had successfully negotiated a cleaning fee refund ($34). That was laughable. They told me I could dispute it further and asked me what was a fair compensation. I said that the fairest compensation was the two nights I had originally asked for. That would have been around $270. They negotiated some more and ended up refunding me $120. I am not impressed on the time it takes for them to respond and handle things, nor am I impressed with their negotiation skills. The place I stayed in was a dump and the pictures were a complete lie and they did nothing to fix that for future renters. I’ve now stayed in three other locations and I am very pleased with them. I like Air BnB but I don’t like their service..Version: 19.17
Good App, but could improve with some bug fixesVery 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..Version: 17.50
Problems taking photo on iPad Pro in landscapeThe app presents a little overlay where one can center the photo id capture, but running the app in landscape mode, the overlay was misaligned, with the overlay rectangle half off-screen. And when I disconnected it from the keyboard and rotated the device into portrait orientation, it put the overlay in the right place and everything looked rendered OK, but when I took the photo, it then grabbed the wrong portion of the photo. Bottom line, the photo capture got thoroughly confused with iPad in landscape orientation (which if you have a keyboard attached, is how we generally use these things). And when I first oriented the device into portrait, I happened to do upside-down portrait orientation (which iPads permit) and then the captured photo was upside down. Lol.
But when I backed out, put my iPad in portrait orientation, and tried to capture the photo again, it worked fine. The problem seems to be limited to when you enter the photo capture while the iPad is in landscape orientation.
This is all pretty minor stuff in an otherwise quite polished app, but I thought I’d bring this to your attention as this is apparently and use-case that slipped by anyone’s attention..Version: 19.20.1
Good app except……I enjoy all the features of this app. In fact I like all of the app with one gigantic exception… The calendar inconsistently works. What I mean is when you open up your Airbnb app and you want to look at your calendar about 50% of the time it just hangs and will not open. All other features work but if you want to know who’s coming on what day your calendar won’t be helpful since half the time it doesn’t load. It doesn’t matter what phone you’re on it doesn’t matter if you’re on an iPad it doesn’t matter what computer… I’ve called over and over about this especially after seeing so many other people having the same issue. As a host it’s really inconvenient to not be able to see who is booking on what dates. Despite a history of this is a major issue for people, it’s still not fixed years later. So so annoying.
PS… Only fix I’ve been able to find is you have to shut the device completely off and power back on. Sometimes that’ll bring your calendar back up otherwise Airbnb doesn’t seem to think this is a big deal that the calendar doesn’t show up for the host about half the time..Version: 18.31
Cherry’s place was amazing. Cozy house with beautiful touches.Cherry’s place was amazing. Cozy house with beautiful touches. This host has definitely raised the bar on my expectations at my next Airbnb. She is super understanding and friendly. The bed was ah-mazingly soft!! The air conditioning was perfect.
The bathrooms were sparkling clean. The house is located one minute away from Cincinnati. It’s extremely clean and very well appointed. The hostess takes great care in providing that immaculate home away from home comfort. Everything you need for a stay away. Kitchen well stocked with clean utensils, more than enough ample amenities all around.
The interior renovation of this sweet little cottage is even better than it looks in the photos.
So clean and a fresh feeling. Love the decor and back porch. Close to the highways, the neighborhood felt very safe, relatively quiet.
I felt very secure there was also another female traveler, I had a wonderful time! Everything I needed was included in the house plus lots of extras. Thanks for hosting this space, I will definitely stay here again!.Version: 19.31
Reimbursement- communicationThere was a guest I was hosting, they extended there stay for a extra day after they checked in. I excepted the request and Airbnb gave the green light, I’m assuming to make sure the funds were available. That was on the Thursday they stay Friday which was the extra day and then checked out Saturday I got a email Friday morning at 1:30 in the morning saying the funds were not available. I then contacted Airbnb via email and the representative was saying if she could attempt to get the payment she tried she called then ask me if I would be willing to call the guest which I wasn’t at first then I decided that I could still reach out with a pleasant message long story short I got the payment through speaking with the guest. I asked to speak with the supervisor after messaging for four days waiting for the payment. The supervisor called me back after the fact after I’d already retrieve the money and I feel like Airbnb wasn’t going to reimbursed me. I repeatedly asked the representative to reimburse me and then go collect it from the guest instead of putting me in the middle and I got nowhere I had to do it myself..Version: 18.31
Hard 2 c, find, useEVERYTHING. With this app is non- intuitive. Have they forgotten that “ease of use” , making text easy to read and find, is what attracted people to the web in the first place? I drive LYFT/UBER too and I’ve taken Airbnb Programmers around S.f. Smug group generally. Proud that they can “ force” u into certain behaviors. #AssinineArrogantBehaviors. I’ve said it before: clear bright text. Clearly organized pages and structure, so we the users have an idea where ur going as well as the program. Super-host” is meaningless. I’ve stayed in several “ super host” homes now, and all they did was set the bar REAL low so it is easy to hit expectations. No difference between those folks and a hotel.
Lastly , u can not search by a text string if I am searching for a specific place in a given city, should b able 2 put my string or any combo of usual string syntax ( a “NOT” operator would really set u all apart. ) and have places I know r there come up. Beginning and end date choice algorithm especially annoying, choosing dates from a pastel date screen and having constantly treat ur “end” dt as ur begin” dt , very frustrating and wasteful of my time..Version: 18.08
App needs more functions for hostsThe app was designed great for renters, everything you need is there. However, for hosts it’s lacking in resources. First off and most important, there’s not a way to setup notifications and reminders of when guests will be checking in (atleast via mobile notifications), leaving you too manually set reminders using other apps. It does send an email out roughly a week before, but it’s not as good of a reminder as a mobile alert would be. Plus, you should be able to customize reminders to your preferences through the app, with how busy everyone’s lives are it’s hard to stay on top of it all of the time. Another huge problem we’ve had is issues with receiving notifications of new bookings and inquiries. Some days we will get them, others days we won’t, so I have to constantly check the app in fear I may have missed a new inquiry. Customer service is absolutely amazing, as a host they’ve been outstanding in helping when problems arise. I hope Airbnb will see this feedback to help make hosts lives a little more efficient and simple..Version: 20.29

Glitchy notificationsFor the most part, this app does what is needed.
But it really bothers me that they haven’t fixed the glitches in the notifications. Even when I answer a message, the notification still remains, as if I hadn’t seen it yet. It’s the same thing with reviews. I’ll complete one, and then the notification still says “write a review”.
Pls fix !.Version: 20.37
The some landlord has no sense of responsibilityBecause of the epidemic, the landlord does not allow guests from other provinces to stay. In fact, the landlord told me that he would not allow people from other provinces to move in after I paid all the rent. However, he was unwilling to refund the rent of more than 1,000 dollars. He only wanted to refund the cleaning fee of 100 dollars. It only took 3 hours from the reservation to the time I called to request the landlord to cancel. And he sent a text message to warn me not to invite local friends to stay in, and change the occupants. If he does this, he will call the police? ? ? (The APP shows that I can change the accompanying members). The landlord blamed me for booking his apartment, which caused him to miss a more valuable client, and he never agreed to the request for refund of the rent. Finally, airbnn's customer service and the landlord could not be contacted, and the platform can only compensate for my loss..Version: 21.08
Deceiving pricesThe most annoying thing about the app is how you don’t know the final price per night until you go through the booking flow. The listing shows one price while in reality it is 30-50% higher with all the countless additional fees. I don’t need to know how you calculate the price, just show me how much it will cost me..Version: 19.40
