About This Listing

My house is an old shop front that used to be a newsagent. Most Thursdays to Saturdays I turn it into a space (aptly named "The Newsagency") for solo/duo/bands to come and perform. I live behind it in a 2 bedroom apartment.

Response from Alison:

I suggest that Irfan is very firm in his decision and reads all the fine print before booking a place! I received a message from him on AirBnb the day before he was meant to check in saying that he wanted to cancel because he had plans to go to Brisbane. Due to this information I didn't prepare the room for him and his girlfriend. The next day, with no other communication that he wanted to renege, he called me wondering when he and his girlfriend could move in. I was away at the time which of course isn't ideal but definitely not uncommon for hosts - particularly when attending to a very sick mother ( mine is currently battling stage 4 brain cancer amongst other complications - he wasn't compassionate about that at all) However, I did the best that I could to find someone to quickly prepare and open my house up for them. I didn't have to do this given they had decided to cancel but I did anyway. It seems to me that Irfan only reneged because he saw that I had a strict cancellation policy (which is an option for all Airbnb hosts - contrary to what he states in his review of me as a "clever" policy on my part) and not because he wanted to experience my home - which is enjoyed by so many people - not just Airbnb guests. It was a very disappointing experience and he caused me a lot of unnecessary stress that I don't need in my life right now. I definitely would not recommend Irfan to anyone offering cheap accommodation as it appears his comfort levels demand more than a $35/night stay. It doesn't seem like Airbnb is the right service for him and that perhaps the Hilton would be a much better choice. I sincerely hope his trip in Australia teaches him perspective - but I suspect it won't.
