We want to start by saying Airbnb is winning
Firstly, we’ve got to say, with the amount of travelling we do, we love airbnb.
We love the technology and how it rebels against the system. It’s always worked out well for us and indeed plenty of people with a spare room, spare apartment or spare house. Some people even find success by signing up and renting out their spare shed to the platform.
If you want to be the next Airbnb host, and grabbing that extra income, you can sign up here. Hell, you could do it now anyway, just in case you need some extra dollar in the future.
Sometimes though, the free to use and unmoderated airbnb technology can reign hell on the hosts. Here are the top 3 worst airbnb experiences.
3. The airbnb crunch time.
In 2011, a San Francisco woman came home to find her apartment destroyed. This was the watershed moment for airbnb. A public lawsuit with Airbnb commenced, and eventually airbnb agreed to cover the costs. There is now a million dollar insurance policy in place for all hosts.
2. The airbnb brothel
Two working girls were caught in the act in an apartment in Stockholm. The women who lived in the apartment and had taken a vacation only found out when the police had alerted them. The note left on the door was simply: ‘your house has been a whorehouse for a month and we had to raid it. Sorry about that!’
1. The airbnb crime scene
Jessica Penzari was greeted by a woman who stated she was in the military and wanted to rent her airbnb room in Manhattan. Penzari received a call from the cops midway through the stay to alert her that a woman, who in reality was a prostitute had been slashed by a customer. To compensate her, Airbnb gave her accommodation and cleaned the place.
