The Airbnb Experience

I am sure that as of this writing, many people have already tried using Airbnb. It is a popular app for traveling. It offers cheaper alternative to posh hotels that is commonly chosen by frequent travelers. But times has changed. People are always looking for creative ways to earn and to mingle with different people from various backgrounds. I think it is a very effective and smart way of accomplishing these goals. And Airbnb makes it achievable.

I must admit that I was adamant at first. But since most hotels in Singapore are relatively expensive compared to that of Bangkok or Hong Kong, I might as well give it a try. I also managed to read some blogs to check out feedback from previous users. It was generally positive, although there were a few warnings. Not that I didn’t mind it, but I believe that each person would always have a different experience.After scouring the internet for news, I decided to see it myself.

And oh, the website was very inviting. It was user-friendly and had many options available. I especially was impressed with how they plan to resolve problems that may occur during the rental period. That’s inevitable, right? At least they have some contingency solutions.

Anyhow, I found a really good space. It was a private room. I didn’t want to rent the whole house for three reasons: [1] too big for the two of us, [2] more expensive, and [3] we might be sharing it with tons of other people and we personally would like to avoid that as much as possible. Although we are just renting the room, the entire house was at our disposal. We were able to use the kitchen (mostly for heating water), dining room, and living room. We had the T&B for ourselves, which was really good.

After a few exchange of  messages with the host, we finalized everything and went on with the payment. We paid a total of 102 euros. Yes, it is euros.

We arrived and left the apartment safe and sound. Everything went well. The hosts were nice people and really gave us the best possible experience. We never felt like guests. We were even offered dinner, at one time. Remember to keep the place clean before you leave. It is very important. You would want to make a good impression, because they will also leave a feedback on your account afterwards. That would make it easier for other hosts to accept your reservation next time.

So if you are looking for an accommodation on your next vacation, why not check Airbnb and see how it’s like. I sure hope you will have a wonderful time. Just choose wisely, okay?
