try.jpgPlease, understand it is a constructive suggestion!

Please, display Pictures + TXT Information in Airbnb search results.

I think Airbnb should present not only picture and titles.. but also the TXT Information about the place in the search results. It would give people more info before clicking the link to explore some listing.
It is not everyone that

We have a minimum 2 day booking policy except for Tuesdays - at present I have to add a separate requirement for every single Tuesday throughout the year!! I would love it if when I click on a Tuesday in the calendar there was a minimum night option in that box that pops up on the right (start/end date box etc). It would save me a huge amount of ha

Please can we change the US date format to being the way the REST of the world works.  


What I would find useful is to be able to block a date for check in only. What seems to happen at present is if I've blocked of a day, maybe I'm visiting my mum, anybody searching on a range that includes that day, I won't appear as available

Can you add a world map where a host can pin where each guest comes from? Clicking on the pin would provide entry boxes for entering information - name, town, date(s) of stay. Hovering over the pin would then reveal that info. Pins of many different colors would make it colorful.

AirBnB recently announced (link below) that you can add photos to provide instructions for self check in


However this is only for self check in. I cannot do self check in but I would still like to be able to do this so they can see what door to arrive at. It would also be useful if I need to point them to an alternate door.

I have more than 10 listings in airbnb, and I have a suggestion for reviews.


Guests can only see the reviews before they book, I think airbnb must show the latest reviews with points and with details. (Cleaning, Location etc.)


For instance, cleaning matters more for someone rather than location. 

Renee Tuesday

I don't readily see calculations performed (monthly/yearly) for fees paid to Airbnb for each reservation. As this is a write-off feature [both federally (tax year) and locally (fiscal year)], it would be most helpful to have this line item automatically calculated for hosts.

Piero Tuesday

I have some concerns on the kids-for free policy. Here my major concerns:

  • Kids between 0 to 2 y/o free: hosts should be able to choose whether kids are hosted free, it should not imposed by Airbnb. In general kids require more cleaning work, mopre attention, etc.
  • There should be an area for extra services that the host provides to kids between 0 to 2

I have just found out today that Instant Book (going forward IB) is a DEFAULT search parameter

for potential guests.  The only reason I found this out is that in the last 60 days or so my viewings

and reservation requests have completely dropped to ZERO.  The person searching for a place to

stay has to turn IB off to see ALL LISTINGS otherwise they wi

AirBNB has partnered with lockstate for an integrated lock solution - which is great. But do they have any plans to pursue more automation? I'm interested for a few reasons:


The current locks selection available is a bit on the expensive side. I find it hard to justify $400+ on a smart lock when I could be gearing up my whole place for that price.

I am a new host on Airbnb letting whole property and guests will have keys. Already had my first enquiry from a potential guest who joined June 2017 but her only ID was an email address. She gave me two possible dates in September for a 7 night stay and asked the cost. She obviously had not looked at the calendar as the price was there to see. I sa

I am not sure if the feature of reviews can actually be reviwed itself. I used Airbnb from my account the first time, and had terrible luck. Perhaps the worst traveling experience I have had. Although I wanted to focus on the positve aspects of the place (whcih were very few). I am now stucked with some bad review from the host, who ctully might ne

Laura a week ago

Why did guest not get charged a cancellation fee per cancellation policy? There was nothing wrong with the room. I have only received 5 star reviews from other guests. Her not liking a closet door is a matter of personal preferences and there were other rooms available. Her other reason, door not having a lock, she was informed of that days prior t

Kat a week ago

Has this come up already?


You can't see reviews guests have given right? 


I think it could add real value and refrain both sides from heat of the moment reviews if our community could see recieved and given reviews. If I saw a guest constantly trash talking their hosts I'd think twice.


It'd be cool to also see stays Vs review stats. If a guest had

Larry & Rebecca a week ago

Many of us have requested this feature, yet AirBNB still has not added it to the filter.  

Alice & Jeff a week ago

Hosts that use Instant Book should be able to choose to limit guests who have cancelled within the previous 12 months.  Currently, only hosts who do not use Instant book can see cancellations as a part of the request.  Since approving is automated for IB, hosts do not see this information as it doesn't show on the Guest Profile (like a cancellation

If someone rates any area less than 5 stars, require that they give an explanation as to why.


It doesn't have to be long. A 10 word minimum is probably good enough.


Without this, guests will and have left poor ratings with no explanation as to why it was poor. How can I improve my listing if they refuse to say why?


The overall review is not enough

I would like to see a "premium promotion" clause for hosts who agree to a terms of service clause that essentially states that you will only use Airbnb for listing,and promotion purposes in exchange for "premium promotion" on the Airbnb platform. 


Premium promotion would ensure that hosts who promote and book outside the platform could rank lower i

As many of the hosts know, the most troublesome 'enemies' are neighbours, landlord, and house management.


Even if you and your guests do not disturb neighbours at all and host guests occasionally just to meet new friends, the 'enemies' and their lawyers might still bring you to the court with the so-called evidence of listing detail found in the se
