My apartment building quickly transformed after other residents began using AirBNB to rent out their rooms. The rent became more expensive once I had to compete with temporary visitors, yet the quality of the building drastically decreased. I was suddenly paying much more to live in what had become an illegal "hotel" for squatters. I am so disappointed by the lack of quality control on AirBNB's part and demand that they be held responsible for their actions.
