New selection option "bathroom type"

Today I stumbled upon a new selection option for the bathroom, you can now select between “private” and “shared”

Thanks for the heads up!

I created my listing almost three months ago, and this option was available then, at least for new hosts. Of course, they took away the ability to opt-out of IB, so there is a trade-off that was made.

This isn’t new and there’s a thread here from a couple of months ago about it. I think it was Carmen who was looking for “ensuite,” because private apparently means not shared with anyone else but not the same as within the guest room.

Ah, could be that it exists a few weeks already.
Last time I made a listing, about a month ago it was not available.

I understand the option for a private room, but the selection is also available in “an entire house”.
It would be strange it is not private.

I dotn really get this feature. Whe a host lists there is an option to indicate private or shared. But when a guest searches there is no such option. SO, for a guest its impossible to find a room according to his/her wish to have a private bathroom. Does not Airbnb realizes that. Thats just silly to do it only one way.

Well, as a software developer, you need data before you can offer the search option. So my guess is that they are waiting to have a critical mass of data before adding this to the search screen. I also believe that fundamentally, there are numerous development teams and that they don’t have a clue what the other teams have rolled out.
