Renting out your home on Airbnb might seem like a great way to earn some extra bucks, and even maybe make some new international friends! But it turns out, letting complete strangers crash in your home doesn't always go as planned. In fact, it can be a sh*t show. Sometimes literally.
1.) From geminidae:
I used to travel a lot for work and I would put my apartment up on Airbnb while I was away.
My apartment has a bunch of closets and drawers which I used to leave empty and at my guests' disposal. However there is ONE closet in the bedroom which I kept locked cause it is where I keep my personal belongings.
One time a guest left a bad review saying that the place had no storage space which I was very confused about until I got home and saw my closet: dude had tried to open it using brute force, the door was almost pulled off its hinges and the wood was chipped in some places. The door in question had TWO PADLOCKS, and the perfectly usable closet on the opposite wall was untouched.
