This, I believe, is the most common questions on the Community Center. Below is a "How To" guide on contacting Airbnb.
3 easy ways to contact Airbnb:
1. Contacting Airbnb's Community Experts
The easiest and quickest way to get answers to any issues is through contacting Airbnb's Community Experts. If they cannot answer your question, they have the ability to re-route you to Airbnb Specialist who will have the notes of the conversation you had with the Expert and can usually solve your question. Please be kind to these Experts as they are not employees of Airbnb and do give their time to assist you in resolving your issue.
Step 1: Visit https://www.airbnb.ca/help/contact_us
Step 2: From the bottom of the screen, choose either "My question is about something else".
Step 3: Follow the prompts to figure out what best describes your issues. Some things you choose will take you to specific information whereas others you can fill in the text box and submit your question. Keep trying until you find something that lets you enter your question into a text box. If you see the box that says "I still need help" at the bottom of the screen, choose that and enter your information. If the choice you made has nothing to do with your question, please just describe this first and the Expert will still help you.
Once you choose the "I still need help" button, you will get a text box which allows you to enter your information.
When you submit a question, you can expect an answer back from an Airbnb Expert within five minutes but usually less. If the Community Expert cannot help you, they can re-route your issue to Airbnb who will then contact you. Airbnb Community Experts do have some access to your reservation information but if it is a question that can only be answered with account information, they will re-route you automatically. Airbnb Community Experts are available 24/7 and again, usually you will have an answer from them within minutes.
2. Contacting Airbnb Via Twitter
I find the second best and easiest way to contact Airbnb regarding any issues I may be having is by using Twitter. Airbnb seems to have dedicated staff who monitor their Twitter feeds and I usually hear back from them within 5-10 minutes of posting my isssue.
Step 1: Log into Twitter
Step 2: Search for @Airbnbhelp and choose "Follow" them.
Step 3: Send a Direct Message (DM) explaining your issue and wait for their response. They may ask for information such as your listing but always provide it over DM so it is not public.
3. Calling Airbnb's Customer Experience Line

Je suis hôte comme vous. Ça marchera pour bous comme cela a été pour moi.
I am having major issues with getting paid from a booking in Dec 2019. Did you get your matter resolved. I have asked for my matter to be escalated or to speak to a manager, but nothing yet. Regards Peter
I had few days ago the same experience than Ian from Australia, my guest was lying and I asked to compare what he wrote with the evidence of the fact. But Airbnb did not change anything! It’s too risky working hard and then show up somebody unfair and ruins everything!!
yes, we want a airbnb to remove a bad comment that has caused as to lose business.
the guest was lying - we asked airbnb to please remove the posting as it has cost us lost business.
Good luck with that Ian. It is not their policy to remove bad reviews. I had a guest blackmail me for a good review (which is against policy). I called support when it first started and they agreed that it was black mail and against their policy so I stopped responding to the guests demands. Because I stopped replying the guest left a 1 star review. Then when I asked Airbnb to remove the review they back peddled. I ended up removing my listing out of shear frustration.
This is interesting as I am actually experiencing this. 2 months ago I wrote an honest review that was removed because I spoke about the adult party that happened while I was there, it was a nightmare. I have proof and everything and Airbnb buried the story as fast as they could lol. Another guest 1 month later wrote the same review and experience with 2 other adult parties from the host and hers is still up at least.
On top of that, you know the automated messages saying "the host cancelled 3 days before arrival"? Airbnb has removed that automated posting. My host was an absolutely nightmare 2 weeks, 1 week and 3 days leading up to the reservation. Airbnb took my side and said he was breaking the policies ect and got the host in line. The host still cancelled. It showed on his account that "This host cancelled 3 days before arrival." Upon checking today, Airbnb removed even the automated message!! I called and they are looking into WHY, but we both know they will do nothing. They are shady.
Hi Did you have any sucess with this . I have had this twice now and my site has been paused . I cant access it and its been taken down.
I agree. No doubt they are now a multi-million dollar company and yet have the worse customer service/forms of communication. We can only hope one day they decide to spend the money for a proper customer service unit.
Hi @John436, I understand your frustration. If I hear "no-one is available to take your call" sometimes I want to throw things or curse at the recorded message. However, I have had to call Airbnb many times, and have never had a problem contacting them. If you need an answer urgently, just use the "contact" link on any help file. Maybe it's different for you,but I get a window that gives many choices including asking for a call back, which is very convenient, and in my experience very fast. I don't know if being a superhost makes it way easier, I do know superhosts get some priority in having their calls answered quickly.
I think many people don't read help files, and that's understandable as in today's world we are inundated with emails, websites, terms of service, helpfiles, chats, blogs and more than we could possibly read in a lifetime even if we wanted to. Airbnb's help files are sometimes out of date or have some inaccuracies, but they are updated as things change. It is Airbnb who make this community center available as another option, and every article has detailed info about how to contact customer service.
I think there is an ongoing effort to create community within the framework of being a large corporation with all that that entails. Airbnb has changed my life for the better, and I don't think I would feel comfortable doing short term bookings independently, so I take it for what it is, including it's giganticness 🙂 I hope you'll try and find a way that works for you to be able to contact Airbnb when you need to. For example, if you email and say "I want to speak to an Airbnb representative about..." and include details like your listing url if you're a host, and the reservation code if relevant, I think you'll get faster help.

Hi, I am a SuperHost and for the first time I have a problem with a booking. The amount the guest booked on was different to when they actually made the booking. As I cant see what they see I need AirBnB to investigate.
I have spent the lat 1.5 hours pressing every "Help" button and every "Contact us" and I cannot find an email address, a Phone number or a Call back anywhere on the site.
I don't see the "My question is about something else" option you mention. Have they further removed themselves from their customers?
Reading your answer to John, I think that you can help with my case.
I recently received a guest coming to stay with us. He showed a booking confirmation, it was our property and the host is me.
I thought there might be some techincal problem that I have not received booking inquiry from the guest.
But afterthat, I found that someone using my name, my photo and listed my property. We accepted the guest to stay with us (3 nights) with out any surcharge as the guest paid their accomodation already. But I would never receive the payment from airbnb since it was not my listing.
Please can you advise me which email I can send this report to?
How can I find the phone number of the person who listed of my property?
Appreciate your kind support.

Hi Vu,how awful for you if someone is impersonating your site! In this case you need to contact Airbnb immediately with the information about the false listing. Have you tried going to the contact link https://www.airbnb.com.sg/help/contact_us#/ ? Do you see a way to message or call, or have Airbnb call you? This is the other resource we have in the Community for how to contact Airbnb: https://community.withairbnb.com/t5/Help/Contact-Airbnb-A-Community-Help-Guide-UPDATED/m-p/413245. If you find yourself in contact with Airbnb Community Experts, simply ask to be rerouted immediately to Airbnb customer service as someone has made a listing using your name. This is a very serious concern, and I wish you all the best in solving it! In case you want to call directly, there is no phone number listed in the Community help guide for Vietnam, but you should be able to call the USA number using Skype or some other cheap method, try +1-415-800-5959. I only looked at your listing https://www.airbnb.com/rooms/18094851 and it looks normal, I was a bit afraid to click on the entire link. Is this something you might want to report to the police, if it's fraud? Don't the guests themselves have some sort of contact information for that site, else how did they send their money? Neti
Really appreciate your kind support in guiding me what to do for the case. We finally could found the contact of the person who list our property and discussing them to releasethe listing.
I will contact AIRBNB for further action if needed.
Wishing you a lovely Sunday
