I booked it on Airbnb. Once I knew I was coming to the city, it took just a quick search on Airbnb to find what I was looking for: a clean, comfortable, affordable place to stay. There's a wide variety of listings and searching is really easy. Just enter your dates, and browse through pictures of available places. It's free to list. So people all over the world are posting their places, making the possibilities endless. Guillermo rents out his extra bedroom to help pay for rent and cat food. Before you book anything you can read reviews left by previous guests. And hear all about their experiences. If you have any questions you can message the host directly through Airbnb. When you're ready to book you just put in your request. Airbnb holds on to your payment until 24 hours after you've checked in. After your stay both guests and hosts can leave reviews for each other. It's a great way to share your experiences with the community and to help everybody find the perfect fit. You can stay a night a week or a month if you want at any price point. You can stay in a private room in a place with other people or you can stay in a home by yourself. These people are out of town for the weekend, so I get the whole place to myself. When I'm outta town I put my place on Airbnb. It helps me pay for my adventures and lets me treat myself to something special once in a while. And with so many unique places available all over the world, why wouldn't? Plus I can book from anywhere. Airbnb lets guest and hosts choose the experience they want. And on top of it all, you're saving money. And a great Airbnb experience is so effortless that the only thing left to worry about is where to go next.
