Airbnb App Review
Unforgettable travel experiences start with Airbnb. Find travel adventures and new places to go far away or near to you, and access vacation home rentals, new experiences, and places to visit all around the world. Book everything for your trip, or start earning money as a host.
Airbnb is a website that you can use to search for and book lodging in more than 34,000 cities and 190 countries. The company allows private and professional hosts to rent out their entire residence (a home, apartment, villa, or castle) by night for travelers to use as a place to stay. Some hosts also offer lodging in a shared space. Airbnb was founded in 2008 and is headquartered in San Francisco, California.
What I like about the app’s design is that it is easy to find what you are looking for. The site is well organized, and there are several pictures in the background to make the site look nicer. I also like how selecting your destination will tell you your approximate costs in different currencies in the lower-left corner. I also like how there is a filter button if you are looking for something specific, like whether the place has air-conditioning or not. I also like that there is a section that tells you how easy it is to get to the place from the airport.
What I don’t like about the site is that it takes a while to load, but once it’s fully loaded, it is easy to navigate. I also don’t like that the prices sometimes don’t include all of the taxes. There are sometimes hidden charges that are not disclosed until you book the room.

How do I book a place on Airbnb?
When you book a place on Airbnb, you’re making arrangements to stay in someone’s home. Each host has their own style of hospitality, starting with how they like to get to know their guests. Some hosts want to approve reservations, while others are comfortable letting you book their place instantly without waiting for approval.
1. Complete Your Profile
In either case, it’s important to know that Airbnb is a community that relies on trust. Complete your profile before you request a reservation with a host, so they can know a little bit about you when they confirm. Your profile should include photos and verifications, especially because some hosts require guests to have a profile photo or Verified ID in order to book.
2. Find the Right Place
With over 800,000 unique listings around the world, you’ll want to make sure the place you choose has everything you need for a comfortable and memorable trip.
When searching for a place, be sure to include your dates and number of guests to get the most accurate pricing. Read reviews, descriptions, house rules, and amenities for each place to see if it’s the right fit for your trip. You can always contact the host if you have any questions about their home.
3. Book It!
You’ve found the perfect place, and now it’s time to make it official. This is where the host’s preferred way of the booking will determine how you’ll confirm your reservation.
- Instant BookFor hosts who don’t want to approve each reservation, you’ll see a button on their listing that says Instant Book. As the name suggests, you can confirm a reservation at these places right away. Learn more about Instant Book.
- Request to BookMany hosts prefers to approve reservations before they’re final. In this case, you’ll see a button on their listing that says Request to Book. To submit a reservation request, you’ll need to enter your payment details. Hosts have 24 hours to accept your request, and your reservation is automatically confirmed once they do. Learn more about submitting a reservation request.
- Pre-approvals and Special offers if you decide to contact the host to ask questions before attempting to book, the host may respond to your message by inviting you to make a reservation with either a pre-approval or Special Offer. A pre-approval is an invitation to finish booking for the dates and number of guests you noted in your message. A Special Offer gives the host the opportunity to provide special pricing, dates, and other reservation details before you book. Learn more about booking a pre-approval or Special Offer.
What is Airbnb and how does it work?
A community built on sharing
Airbnb began in 2008 when two designers who had space to share hosted three travelers looking for a place to stay. Now, millions of hosts and travelers choose to create a free Airbnb account so they can list their space and book unique accommodation anywhere in the world. And Airbnb experience hosts share their passions and interests with both travelers and locals.
Airbnb helps make sharing easy, enjoyable, and safe. We verify personal profiles and listings, maintain a smart messaging system so hosts and guests can communicate with certainty and manage a trusted platform to collect and transfer payments.
Your safety is our number one concern. Learn more in our Trust and Safety Centre.
We’ve answered the most common questions about Airbnb in our Help Centre. Learn more about finding a place to stay, paying for your reservation, or what it means to host a place to stay or to host an experience.
And our global community support team is standing by 24/7 in 11 different languages to help make things right with rebooking assistance, refunds, reimbursements, our $1 million dollar Host Guarantee, and insurance programs for both homes and experiences. Contact us with any questions.
What are Airbnb Experiences?
Experiences are activities designed and led by inspiring locals. They go beyond typical tours or classes by immersing guests in a host’s unique world.
You do not need to host your home on Airbnb in order to host an experience. Experiences are an opportunity for anyone to share their hobbies, skills, or expertise with the world, without needing an extra room.
You do not need to stay in a home on Airbnb in order to book an experience.
Experiences last a few hours on average. They can range from workshops to long treks and are available for various skill levels and interests. All experiences are reviewed by Airbnb to make sure they meet our experience quality standards.
