Feel at home
This host cancelled our booking 3 hours before our arrival. We had a great $ on a hotel and cancelled because of the Airbnb reservation. We then had to pay 50% more for the reservation because of it been last minute. This host caused our family great stress. This is why we are leary about using Airbnb and this host confirmed it. The host was fined by Airbnb for his cancellation. But this didn't help us with the anxiety of driving around trying to find new accommodations. The host did not communicate why the reservation was not available, just one sentence sent to us after we requested a check time say "the room is not available" Airbnb was unable to connect the host there was no phone number. Worst Airbnb experience so far.......
*AD CONTAINED FALSE INFORMATION* The map listing showed this place in downtown Calgary, which is why I booked it. After leaving the Foo Fighters concert and not being able to find his place (which was pinpointed using postal code instead of an address) I called him, and ended up taking a $60 CAB RIDE to the outskirts of Calgary, it wasn't even technically in Calgary! I also requested to have one of my two nights refunded because I couldn't find his house on the first night and simply gave up and crashed at a new freinds house instead. He has since changed the listing, but did not discount me the cab ride which I felt I was rightly owed. He has been name calling me in emails calling me an idiot, AND he KNEW about the incorrect map pointer before I made the booking! I guess I'm the first to complain enough that he changed the listings postal code, no wonder he pretended it was downtown, you get a lot more booking that way. Although the place was nice with amenities, the location is horrible and I do not advise this for any travellers as I had to take a one hour bus ride back to downtown.
Michael did not show or call the first nite he was booked , 2nd nite said he would be here by 11:30, called at 1:00 AM saying he was staying with friends in Banff, I let him stay at No Charge the following evening due to his blunder, had the audacity yo ask me to pay for his cac ride via text after he enjoyed a free nite. Would not host this person in the future.
