I am a retired lady living in Canada.
I have travelled a lot and am quite independent and adventurous. At the same time, pretty quiet. Very tidy.
I do however tend to be a bit of a worry wart, so always have lots of questions before I visit. I do like to have things organized well in advance.
Fortunately for me most hosts seem to deal with this. I have stayed with several airbnb hosts in various cities in the US. Most times it is to attend classical music concerts.
I find this type of accommodation convenient, economical, and sociable.
