Don’t ghost us
Use hosts with fewer than 3 listings, and be extra cautious of full-home listings
Try to find an AirBnB in less saturated neighbourhoods when possible
If you find yourself in a Ghost Hotel and want to help, leave a review for the host that describes the problem.
This is a Ghost Hotel - one of many Airbnbs run by a businessperson who doesn't live there. Ghost Hotels take away homes from community members and erode the neighbourhood. I wish I had known before booking! If you are planning to take a trip to Kensington Market, please try to avoid multi-listing hosts. It really matters to the community! Check out noghosthotels.com for more details.
