I've been an Airbnb host for two years and have travelled on Airbnb for at least one year, so I've seen my fair share of places and met a lot of great hosts. Good: The property is very clean, functional and charming on a large block. When prompted enough, communication issues are rectified and they are apologetic.
The Bad: You would expect a few things to not go to plan as with any travel through Asia, but unfortunately, seemed to keep going in the wrong direction. Communication on booking was a little slow - a couple of days to reply. Note they are constructing a house right at the back of the block, a tractor was pounding about 50m from the room - forget a quiet day on the porch with a book, the tractor was going on for hrs from early in the morning (thankfully I had my earplugs). This perhaps should've been listed and prob OK if you are out all day. I had to drown out the noise with TV when I did get up...then the power went out for one hour - again not normally an issue but I happen to be charging every gadget just before heading to the airport. Don't count on the internet to work at all - it connects but there's no data on it; I was there for 2 days - should be delisted if it's not working reliably. There were several other miscommunication issues as the property is a little distance to food, I requested if it might be possible for someone to drop me off to pick up some food and thought we had confirmed a time. This apparently was not communicated between family members and long story short, I was left waiting for several hours. Again, all of this I had put down to miscommunication but as they neatly put my luggage bag into their tricycle to depart to the airport, Jane told me it would cost me 150 peso for a ride to the airport and also I owed 100 peso for the round trip for food yesterday. They did not at any point state this on their listing or at any time before when I asked on the first day - they waited until my bag was ready to depart to ask me for more money even though they apologised I had been waiting for hours (I showed them the sms communcations their family sent)? I'd really like to put this down to a cultural thing and still hope this to be the case, but would advise all future travellers tp confirm these details with them beforehand (my accommodation north of the island provided free transportation).
