Has anyone heard of or used before this service https://www.airbnb.com.sg/?
Basically when you travel to a foreign country for a vacation, instead of securing your accommodation from the usual source such as hotels, motels or hostels, airbnb.com.sg brings together hosts from the country who are willing to rent out their room for you to live in. In layman terms, they play host to you, the guests.
This isn't anything new (for me it is) and I am trying to find accommodations for my vacation next year and am wondering if anyone has any experience to share (both good and bad).
What do you guys think of this idea or would you rather stay in a standard hotel?
I will only be traveling with a fellow girlfriend hence I kinda liked the idea that airbnb.com.sg offers. Some of the prices available there are rather attractive, beautiful rooms, near popular tourist spots etc.
Might be cheaper than hotels
Able to live with the local hosts and learn more about their culture
Some hosts could be really amazing people
Some of the apartments/rooms are really beautiful
Nothing scarier than a bad host
Took some screenshots using Gold Coast as an example.
Can't see the words but what it says is basically house rules etc.
