I have always chosen the thumbs-up when reviewing a guest and answering the question “would you host this guest again”, even when I’d never have them in my house again. I just feel it’s so brutal, and I worry that my particular dislike of a guest shouldn’t affect their overall rating. What if I just don’t like someone but they never broke any major rules? I just don’t want that person in my house again. I don’t even know if the guest gets a message about a thumbs-down, I mean, does anything actually happen?
For instance, my current guest is a bit inconsiderate and rude. Unfriendly to talk to, banging doors during the night, dirty toilet, showers at 2am, leaving the noisy bathroom fan on all night, forgetting to double lock the flat when going out for the day. I’m tempted to use the thumbs down as I’d never let him stay again. What do the rest of you do?
