Here are the top 5 ways to get 5 stars reviews as an Airbnb Host
Provide your guest with a clean environment
The #1 sacrosanct thing to keep in mind while hosting on Airbnb is “Cleanliness.” It will help you build a really good Airbnb listing and provide you with 5-star ratings even if you mess up on the other parts of hosting.
Be very clean and stay clean. Putting on fresh bedsheets, cleaning the bathroom, cleaning the room.

Be there for your guests
You should be present and welcome your guests to your home whenever you can.
The whole idea of Airbnb is to give your guests a local experience and what better way to do it than doing it yourself.
Give them a small tour of the neighborhood and things to do in the vicinity. Check out hostfully which can help you build a local guidebook for your vicinity and town that can tremendously help your guests.
Build Local Contacts
After you get the ball rolling and scale up your business, it is important to build a relationship not only with your guests but also with your local businessmen and shopowners.
And you can start recommending places to your guests where they can avail discounts if they mention your name.
It is also important that you can provide any service that your guest would require like airport pickup, a city guided tour, and so on.
Be Yourself and Don’t Overdo It.
While it is good to give your guest a comfortable and pleasant experience, don’t overdo it. Don’t overdo it by pretending to be a hotel waiter, chef, or chauffeur, by being extra polite and doing whatever your guest says.
Set your boundaries and give your guests just the adequate hospitality they require and don’t bug them with the extras.
Most guests stay in Airbnbs just to experience the everyday daily life at home and give them that instead of pretending to be a 5-star hotel.
Build a Relationship
Ultimately, Airbnb is about meeting new people, sharing stories and experiences, and creating new relationships that last a lifetime.
This is the best part of Airbnb which you should make good use of. And you will have a world to network with if you do it right.
