Late last night after a birthday celebration for a friend (ahem), I received a Request to Book from a young woman. I was in bed, using my phone, and didn’t really pay attention to her reviews as she was communicative and answered all my pre-booking questions.
This morning I notice that she has 5 reviews and her first is a 1 star. Since it was her first stay, and she canceled it from the street (very urban, non-gentrified setting, didn’t feel safe), I thought the host was being punitive since they didn’t even walk in the door. His review was nasty.
All other reviews have been 5 star, so I’m thinking the 3.5 is from the 1 stars? I can’t see the breakdown like I usually can (it’s been one of those days).
thoughts? I’ve booked her and communication has been good, so I’m thinking that it will be fine.
Current guests are already on my last nerve. They’ve already gone past the curtain to my private quarters (admitted they wanted the cat, which I said was not available if I’m not home) and tried the door.
Is it Thursday morning yet?
