Hosts of places to Events
We ask that all hosts who offer places to stay meet our basic requirements for overall rating, response rate, cancellations, and acceptance of reservations, and we also ask hosts to comply with our Terms of Service and other policies. When booking a place to stay on Airbnb, guests can read the host’s profile page or reviews from past reservations to learn what to expect from their host, such as what languages they speak, their response rate, and whether they’ll be on-site during the stay.
Hosts can list a wide variety of places to stay, such as entire houses, rooms in bed and breakfasts or hotels, entire homes for families, or other unique places. Hosts who are on-site sometimes like to greet guests in person when they arrive. Other hosts will give guests all the details they need to check themselves in. Guests can always contact their host if they have any questions before or during their stay.
Sometimes hosts partner up to co-host a place to stay, and other times professional hosts work together to manage a group of listings. Some hosts even offer their spaces for free to people who need temporary housing, such as a COVID-19 first responder or a family fleeing conflict in their home country.
