I like it because I can quickly filter out the open results by my $15 limit and the ability to message and share info without having to create new contacts etc. Sure I’ve had a few difficult check-ins, but have had the same issues when doing on the fly check-ins. Nothing’s a certainty anymore. And several times where the expectations weren’t met, had very prompt funds refunded by Airbnb. Overall I like the experience of meeting a local who is renting out a room, etc. met some great folks this way already. I also use iOverlander and other resources.
