Airbnb used to be a practical alternative to hotels because you get more space and a full kitchen at your disposal. The “home” aspect is pretty nice too.
Nowadays, it’s become more of a hassle, and with prices rising and the growing number of chores required, people aren’t as thrilled about the idea of staying in an Airbnb. Some hosts are feeling this, especially heading into the colder season.
According to Insider, Airbnb bookings were down over the summer, and hosts have been openly discussing the struggles of staying booked. One superhost in a Facebook group asked, “Has anyone seen a huge decrease in bookings over the last three to four months? We went from at least 50% occupancy to literally 0% the last two months.”
