One host on Airbnb, the home rental platform, has been criticized for leaving guests with an extensive list of chores to do, including loading the washing machine, after charging a separate, rather high, cleaning fee. Brandon, a 32-year-old graduate student residing in Houston, Texas, who preferred to give only his first name, told Newsweek that he, his wife, two children, and some friends had booked a two-night stay at a hotel in San Antonio, Texas, for October 13-15.

The reservation, made in late September, included a $165 cleaning fee, according to a screenshot of the accommodation’s reservation receipt. Brandon said they rented the house on Airbnb because the total cost of the three-bedroom home was “cheaper than three hotel rooms.” But the discovery of the list was disturbing. The user said he was “particularly annoyed by the cost of cleaning and finding a series of household chores.” The post, titled “Airbnb is getting out of control,” showed an image of a bulleted list of “instructions.”
