I am looking for a place to book on air (I host as well) and had it narrowed down to two places that I liked the same, within $5 of each other and blocks from each other. I couldn’t decide so I looked at the host profile and clicked on people who had left them a review. One host left “Jane Doe was a great guest” on every review I saw of hers (which is fine) and the other host left NO reviews for her guests…I checked like 10 and none had reviews.
After seeing this, I would prefer “xx was a great guest” over nothing. I leave reviews for all my guest (except one which is a long story) and if they leave me a review they get 10% off their next booking. I find it odd that a host would not leave a review for her guests who DID leave her a review.
Do you review every guest or just some?
