What should I put for my room type?

All listings are categorized into the following three room types: shared rooms, private rooms, and entire homes/apartments. As a host, you're responsible for accurately describing your listing, so make sure you choose the appropriate room type.

Shared rooms: guests share the entire space with you or others and don't have a room to themselves. 

Private rooms: guests share some spaces with you, like the kitchen, living room, or bathroom, but they have their own private room for sleeping.

Entire homes/apartments: guests rent the entire property and do not have to share the space with you or with anyone else.


To list multiple rooms or room types depending on your availability, please read this FAQ.
