Long life to the collaborative economy!
You got it. The uprising trend where buying experiences – like travel! – is slowly but surely replacing buying unnecessary material goods that end up piling worthlessness wherever there is some room left for them, is one we are meant to follow blindly too. And this is totally cool.
How can this get even better? Minimizing costs – yay for more travel and experiences! – , helping and empowering others to follow your steps as well as giving back to the community and, at the same time, enjoying our travel experiences with the locals, the people who ultimately know the places we are visiting by heart and are willing to share them with you.
Whether we are talking about car sharing (companies like blablacar, amovens, mitfahrgelegenheit are killing it) or staying in other people’s places for free or a rate (thinking of couch surfing, night swapping and of course Airbnb right now but there are many more!), and even when it seems that governments do not seem to agree and are determined to boycott these initiatives, this movement is unstoppable. And this is again, brilliant!
But without further ado, let’s get to the point here.
We have also experienced some of the local Airbnb goodness and it was about time to share it with you. From the almost free super budget options to the mid-range and luxurious ones, we have you covered in this article.

In order to make this list more useful, we’ll only showcase places that enjoy:
- Free wireless connection (we know how important this is these days for everyone!)
- A not shared room or surface, that means a private room or entire home/apartment (some privacy is key to have a good rest)
- With access to a kitchen
- Own by a Super-host (experienced hosts who are passionate about making your trip memorable. They rarely cancel, at least 80% of their reviews are 5 stars, they respond to guests quickly and maintain a 90% response rate or higher AND they have enough experience to make your stay a remarkable one, completing at least 10 trips in their listings in a year)
- Something that makes them unique and worth a stay on its own
- AND that include the ‘Instant Booking’ option (ain’t no one has time for last-minute despair when, after giving your credit card details you still need to wait for the host’s approval)

Note for AirBnB first-timers:
- Airbnb is based on trust. Verify your ID, work on getting positive references and treat all the places where you stay as if they were your own.
- Airbnb wasn’t designed for very last minute bookings, therefore plan your stay at least a few days in advance.
