I am 70 years old and unemployed and I receive very little social security benefit. It is a godsend to discover Airbnb. To be a Airbnb host I am able to earn some money to help make ends meet. And help pay my mortgage, medical bills, and so on. Airbnb has excellent safety and messaging tools that help me select the right people to share my space. All in all Airbnb is a great help to me.
