As a host on Airbnb you may be wondering if guests are rating you after their stay. The answer is yes – hosts are rated by guests on Airbnb! Here’s what you need to know about the Airbnb rating system for hosts.
Airbnb’s rating system is designed to give hosts and guests an opportunity to give feedback about their experience. The rating system is also a way for Airbnb to ensure that the community is welcoming and respectful to all.
Here’s how the Airbnb rating system works for hosts:
After a guest has stayed at your listing they will receive an email from Airbnb asking them to rate their experience.
The guest has 14 days to rate their stay.
Guests can rate their stay on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best.
Hosts can see the rating that a guest has given them but they cannot see the accompanying review.
After a guest has rated their stay the host has the opportunity to rate the guest.
The host rating is separate from the guest rating and is not seen by the guest.
Hosts can rate guests on a scale of 1 to 5 with 5 being the best.
When leaving a rating for a guest hosts are encouraged to give feedback that is constructive honest and respectful.
Ratings and reviews are a key part of the Airbnb community and can be very helpful for hosts and guests. When guests are looking for a place to stay they can read reviews and ratings to learn about other people’s experiences. And when hosts are looking for guests they can use reviews and ratings to help them make a decision.
If you’re a host on Airbnb it’s important to keep in mind that ratings and reviews are not only a way for guests to give feedback – they’re also a way for Airbnb to make sure that the community is a safe and respectful place for everyone.
