How many guests can your Airbnb accommodate?

Hello everyone!


Whether you are a traveller searching for a comfy stay or a Host setting up your listing, outlining clear details of the space and the number of guests it can accommodate plays a crucial role in ensuring a comfortable stay.   


Setting clear expectations on the maximum number of guests a listing can accommodate remains the most important aspect for both guests and Hosts.

As the number of guests your listing can accommodate differ from listing to listing and the type of stay you offer, I would like to ask our amazing Hosts : How many number of guests does your Airbnb accommodate?

Have you ever encountered situations where you had to accept more people on a guest's request?

Hello Bhumika , our Vila Cancelos Douro Suites, in Portugal, allows 4 people; we have two suites independent of each other with separate entrances from the outside. In the Master suite there is also a sofa bed for a child over 6 years old - 12 )


we have a beatifull view and swimimg-pool over the Douro River . 

6 guests can be accomodates as there is only one bathroom


Hi Bhumika,


Our Beehaven Sunset Paradise do have 6 bedrooms and could accommodate 12 people. Moreover we do have 2 sleeping couches in the lounge where up to 4 kids could also sleep pretty comfortable. That would mean a maximum capacity of 10 adults and 6 kids or 16 adults.


Due to the fact that one room has no own bathroom nor direct access to a bathroom without stepping outside or through another bedroom we do recommend that as a kids rooms. But if you are aware of that and come anyway with family or close friends you will be contributed by a clean and new house without load shedding issues, a stunning view and sunset you will never forget.

Four with two of the three bedrooms having full beds; one bedroom has a Futon and an extra guest could stay using the living room couch. Because the rooms are fairly small, I would prefer no more than 3 guests. 

10 in 3 bedrooms with bunk bed, and a sleeper sofa in the living room

I can accommodate 6 guests comfortably in my 3 bedroom home…I don’t think I would accept any more adults but if someone asked if a child or infant could stay on top of that, I would be fine with that.

My place can accommodate 4 adults in total. I have available a queen size bed in the main bedroom and 2 sofas that can turn into beds for 2 more. I want to ask you also a question. My place is in another town than the one I live currently. How me as a host can be sure about the number of persons that will come and stay eventually? What I want to ask is , if the use of camera in common areas such as the staircases that you have to go up to enter the house or the entrance of the building is acceptable by the Airbnb policy. I know that you can also mention that there is a camera on the property but I want to give me your opinion on this matter. I appreciate your question and I’m so glad to be a member of this amazing community .

My understanding is you can use security cameras on the exterior like Ring.
