Endorsing a host (not a review)

In the Airbnb help pages, they suggest the following:

If you had a particularly amazing host but were unable to leave a review in time, consider endorsing them by writing a reference that will appear on their profile.

I have checked, but cannot find how I can do that. Can anyone on this forum enlighten me?

Many thanks in advance,


Hi francetim,

I believe that the Airbnb member needs to request that you write him/her a reference. When I have written references for Airbnb members I have asked them to send me a request to write a reference which appears in my personal email, not in my Airbnb inbox.By the way, please try to write reviews instead of references. Reviews have more credibility because referenced are ususally written by friends and family members.
