People Who Have Visited An Airbnb, What's The Worst Experience You've Ever Had

·1 min read

In the past, Airbnb was often seen as a less expensive, more homely alternative to visiting a new place and staying somewhere like a hotel. However, as some people have learned the hard way, sometimes an Airbnbs aren't actually as advertised, or worse, cause more problems than a hotel.

I'm asking the BuzzFeed Community: Airbnb visitors, what's your worst Airbnb story?

Maybe you splurged on a house you wanted to stay in during your vacation, only to find that the actual home was miles worse than the photos you saw in the advertisement?

Maybe you got stuck with an overbearing host who gave you a list of totally extreme house rules, and then pounded on your door later in the night because you were making noise past 7 p.m.

Or, maybe your trip was over before it started after you spent nine hours driving to your Airbnb, only to have the host cancel your reservation at the last minute?

Maybe you showed up, and the Airbnb was totally wrecked. Or worse, you turned up to find someone actually living there and found out that the Airbnb listing was a fraud.
