Over the past year we have held four Host Q&As here in the Community Center, where we have answered some of the most popular questions asked by the community.
To make it easier to find the answers given, we have created a designated Host Q&A board, which you can refer to at any point.
For each Host Q&A, we have had thousands of questions submitted and so to help answer more than just those in the Host Q&A event, we are also addressing them on a rolling basis, in our Airbnb Answers series. We are regularly sharing new topic, so keep an eye out for the Airbnb Answers topics in this board. 🙂
To view this page, click on the ‘Discuss’ button on your Community Center header bar and drop down to ‘Host Q&A’.
We hope you find this a useful resource.
This is wonderful to hear, thanks so much @Ute42. 🙂
Thanks @Huma0, I'm so pleased you like it.
Great question @Mikki0. So the next Q&A dates haven't been announced yet, as the lastest was just in October.
The way it worked for the previous couple was that a few months before, we opened a designated area here in the Community Center where you could submit questions and/or support questions which other had asked.
All details for the Q&As, including submitting questions are usually sent via email, so it's worth keeping an eye out and I also announce this here in the Community Center too.
Once we have more information, I will let you know.
It is fantastic to hear it is a useful resource @Rachel177. Thanks so much for letting me know your thoughts. 🙂
Aw thanks @Lawrene0. 🙂
No problem @Helen427, glad it's helpful.
I just watched this entire video and was kind of blown away when the guy said he thinks that a guests first name and a bit of other insignificant info is enough for a host to agree to their booking and allow that person/people into their home to stay.
I need to know the guests last name as well as AND A PHOTO OF THE PERSON THAT'S SUPPOSED TO ARRIVE AT MY HOME! I DEMAND THAT. Otherwise, how do I know the person that booked, is the person that is arriving at my HOME. This is MY HOME airbnb. I need some security. Airbnb saying that it has verified each guest themselves does not give me a secure feeling. Show me what they look like and tell me their full name so I can do my own verification.
No one in their right mind would allow an anonymous person (or people) with nothing but a first name & airbnb's assurance they they have verified them, to come stay at their home.
We need a last name and a photo (that matches the government ID) so we can do some very basic background checks on the person who wants to come stay AT OUR HOME WITH US! If airbnb can't understand that, they're going to lose lots of hosts.
