Many of us have learned that being a good guest means leaving a place better than we found it. It’s a pretty basic tenet to live by. Clean up after yourself, respect other people’s belongings and rules, and don’t break anything. Easy enough, right? Apparently not for these Airbnb users! Airbnb hosts and guests recently shared the worst experiences they’ve ever had while using the platform. From guests who won’t move out to hosts who try to scam their tenants; these stories are what nightmares are made of. Let these horror stories serve as a reminder always to read the reviews before you book!
#1: Smile, You’re on Camera
Personally, I’ve only had positive Airbnb experiences – I stayed at three Airbnbs, and they’ve all been lovely – the apartments have been clean and comfortable, and the hosts were friendly and accommodating. That being said, I can see how a lot of things could go wrong while staying at an Airbnb.
This person’s experience is one of the worst things that can happen at an Airbnb, if you ask me. Finding not one but two hidden cameras – one of them in the bathroom – is pretty shocking. I’m sorry, but you can’t pass off a camera in the bathroom as a security camera. I’m glad these people didn’t give up the fight and informed their neighbors of this situation.
