I'm in my 30's and live in London, but like to escape from it at every opportunity. I'm on Airbnb because I'd rather meet the people that make up a city than stare at the inside of another hotel room. Local people also know where the best bars and restaurants are too! I believe it's a privilege to be given the opportunity to stay at the great places here and always treat them and my hosts with respect.
I can also take as little as 10 minutes in the bathroom in the morning if required.
