Sometimes a hotel might have been better
At this point it’s safe to say that you’ve probably already heard about the phenomenon of Airbnb. Whether you have used one personally as a guest or opened your own place up for some extra (and easy) cash, Airbnb has some undeniable benefits. However, like most things in this topsy-turvy world, using the international rental platform is not always chocolate on the pillow…
Guests and hosts alike have had their fair share of horror stories, from the unwanted drunken late-night encounter, to some truly bizarre Hills Have Eyes-level creepiness.
My mom helped manage some Airbnb beach houses and apparently someone tried to make meth and LSD in one. (tipadisdick)
I Love You Robbie!
My first guest was a middle aged woman who was attending a Robbie Williams concert in the neighbor city. She was very sweet and kind when i talked to her through AirBNB, so i let her use my cheap apartment (in which i live also) She didn’t “check in” before 3 in the morning, and she was very drunk when she arrived. I had work the following morning, so i really felt like sleeping. When i let her inside she was very noisy. After about 30 minutes she fell asleep. I was waken up suddenly by her trying to “sneak” in my bed. (Larsthewise)
Bed N’ Burgle
The guest that stole everything from our house. They used a fake profile and when we got back from vacation everything of value was gone. (purplelatte)
