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?

Hi Ms Bhumika! Thank you for your interest in The Tiny Cottage in The Springs! We have one queen bed and two twin beds. Then we also have a crib and a playpen, and a cot. So basically we can accommodate four adults, and three little kids.

Hi Bhumika.  I have a few listings on Airbnb.  I'm not sure which listing you are referring to.  One has one bedroom and a sleeper couch which can sleep 3.  The other two listings have two bedrooms each and can sleep 4 each.

Hi Bhumika, 

Most of my apartments are studio type of rooms, so I can accommodate 2 guests and more if they are willing to sleep on the couch or the floor. I can provide them with a mat to sleep on. It is the Asian culture.

Listing offline but...
Sleeps 8

Sleeps 4 in beds
Sleeps 4 on airbeds.
There is plenty of warning in the listing that the airbeds are partially made-up and may still be stored under the normal beds. Guests worry about this, and when they find that there is a duvet ready, draped over a towel rail, I hope they are a bit relieved. That way I can leave-out a slightly damp duvet if there is a spare day before the guests arrive.

Only a few large groups go for this option officially - I am sure a few more have used the airbeds without stating numbers, but I only charge a small amount extra for using them.

The limit is that there is one shower.
Another limit is that larger parties seem to need more housework; linen alone takes whatever amount of time.

The prompt was that people have sometimes asked as a favour if I can sleep more, and then I find that a high maximum guest number does attract attention a bit if I am clear about the down-side. The only visitor who wanted to sleep eight kept his youngest child in bed with him, so it was more like a seven.

I use cheap airbeds with an underblanket parcel-taped over each one. Then a fitted sheet. Amazon Basics are good because their elastic pulls tight over the under-sized mattrass.
