Airbnb Summer Release 2023: Airbnb Rooms & Host Passport

With Airbnb Rooms, the booking platform gives an all-new take on private rooms. Indeed a new category Rooms has been created and redesigned search filters that make it easier for guests to discover private rooms. With Airbnb Rooms, guests should also get to know the host better and feel more like friends than guests, a way of coming back to the essential nature of Airbnb in its origin.

To help guests get a good idea of their host before booking and get to know them better, Airbnb has developed the Host Passport, which appears in the bottom left corner of the listing. A nice way to discover more about you!
