Airbnb Review FAQ's

You have 14 days after checkout time to write a review your trip.

No exceptions – Under no circumstances Airbnb will extend the 14 days for you. If you miss the 14 days period, you have missed the opportunity to write the review permanently.

Don’t waste your time asking Airbnb to extend the period for you; they won’t do it.

You have 48 hours to edit your review unless the other party has already reviewed you or the 14-day time limit passed.

Once a review is published, you cannot edit it.

Technically, yes you can contact Airbnb and request for deletion.

Practically, they won’t delete it unless it violates Airbnb content policy or outright discriminatory.

Don’t waste your time if you are looking to change the words, turn it between a positive/negative or made a mistake – they won’t let you do it.

  • Reviews that don’t represent personal experience.
  • Reviews that are not related to the reservation, for example, commentary about political, religious, or social issues.
  • Review that endorses or promotes illegal, harmful activity, violence, vulgarity, discriminatory or threatening.
  • Content that violates another person’s rights, such as intellectual property rights and privacy rights. For example, mentioning personal address and additional identifying information.

Both the host and guest have 14 days to leave a review for each other.  

Once you both leave a review for each other, the review is posted immediately in their Airbnb public profile.

If you leave a review for the other person but the other person does not review you, it will automatically be published after the 14 day period expires

Yes, you can respond to a review written by the other party within days of the review being published. 

Remember your response will be public on your profile. Read more about Airbnb guidelines on how to respond to a review.

How to write an Airbnb review?

1. Be kind and honest

People use Airbnb for their livelihood, and a small negative comment in the review which they didn’t deserve can have severe financial consequences on the person and his family.

2. Mention name

Mention your Airbnb host’s name and write a few sentences about their personality (if you met them) or the communication throughout the stay.

3. Highlight check-in

Write about the check-in process and how difficult or easy it was to get into the property.

4. What you loved

Write something which you found very convenient and helpful during your stay.

It can be anything such as the location of the property, recommendations of the host, information provided or the amenities in the property

5. Suggest improvements

Suggest what could be better and make the stay more comfortable for future guests. 

Remember, there is a very fine line between negative feedback and constructive criticism.

Be positive.

6. Summarise with a sentence for future guests

In the end, mention if you would recommend (or not recommend) the property to other guests.

If in doubt, see what others have written and used it as an inspiration.

7. Know Airbnb star rating

In the world of Airbnb, 5-star rating mean satisfactory and above and a 4-star rating means you had a bad experience.

    The only thing I’d draw anyone’s attention to is that it’s on the 3rd floor (which we knew about and were fine with), up some winding staircases. Overall, the place exceeded my expectations and my friends and I had a lovely time.
