Airbnb reviews are extremely important both for the guest and host! Much like on sites such as Amazon.com, future guests and hosts take reviews into consideration.
To leave an Airbnb review when you are the guest, log into the Airbnb website. Go to the Edit section and click on Reviews. Then click on Reviews by You and leave your feedback as you are prompted. Double check to make sure your review was submitted.
All the reviews on Airbnb are written by guests and hosts that use the Airbnb service. After checkout, you will have fourteen days to write a review. Reviews are limited to 500 words and must follow Airbnb’s review guidelines. You can edit your review for up to 48 hours, or until your host or guest completes the review.
To see reviews that have been written about you and reviews that you have written, go to your Reviews in your Airbnb account. This also shows any private feedback that people left for you. Honest and transparent reviews are extremely important to the Airbnb community. If Airbnb feels that any of its review guidelines are violated, they will remove or alter the review. Other than a violation of the review guidelines, Airbnb prefers not to censor, edit, or delete review.
Airbnb supports free speech, transparency, and clear communication. The facts are the most important thing in writing a review. The best reviews provide helpful information which will allow the community to make better decision.
According to Airbnb.com, the following are not permitted in reviews:
- Reviews that do not represent a user’s personal experience .
- Reviews unrelated to the actual reservation (ex: political, religious, or social commentary).
- Content that endorses or promotes illegal or harmful activity or violence, or is profane, vulgar, obscene, defamatory, threatening, or discriminatory.
- Content that violates another person’s or entity’s rights, including intellectual property rights and privacy rights (ex: publishing another person’s full name, address or other identifying information without permission).
- Content that is proven to be used as extortion.
- Content that refers to an Airbnb investigation.
