Guests should have star ratings on their public profile just like Hosts have to
Currently only a Hosts profile page will show how many average stars that person receives.
And even tho we give star ratings to guests regarding communication and cleanliness, it does not show on their profile page.
So then whats the point?
A phone rep told me "yea the star ratings for guests dont mean anything. you can skip that part".
I recommend guests have public star ratings too.
Response from Airbnb
Reviews are central to Airbnb, and we appreciate the desire to have reviews provide value to both hosts and guests. We are not planning to create a publicly visible Star Rating on the guest profile at this time. Later this year we are planning to look into improving profiles. The ways reviews are represented on profiles will be considered as part of this project. But at this time we are not able to commit to making changes to how Star Ratings are displayed on guest profiles.
Reviews from previous hosts can be leveraged best depending on how you host. If you are hosting with Instant Book, you can use a host control setting to ensure you only receive bookings from guests that have positive reviews. If you are not using Instant Book, then you can read the reviews left by hosts directly on the guest’s profile page.

We plan to look into this idea starting in July or August 2017. Thanks for your patience as we balance this with other improvements we’re making to Airbnb.
