In a recent viral video circulating TikTok, a user named Tiffany documented what it was like staying in an Airbnb where the host was a little bit off. In the video, which now has almost 2 million views, she shows that the host had left directions for different, very simple, things. For example, the host draws out the remote control with detailed instructions on how to use the air vents in the room, and even how to use storage bins.
Tiffany also explains that there were two cups in the room, and the host explained she used the “wrong one” for drinking water, as one was assigned to hold someone’s toothbrush.
The directions are all handwritten and color-coded, which many thought was a bit much. Some wondered why you would rent your home for people if you felt uncomfortable having them there and doing as they please. Tiffany, however, remained very upbeat and did not have any complaints, as can be told from the caption that notes “respect the home, TikTok about it later.”
Part 2 of my Airbnb stay
In an updated video, she wanted viewers to understand that she did not have a terrible time staying in the Airbnb with that host and the video was only for comedy purposes, as she understands that everyone is different and different things work for others. She did, however, feel anxious and seemed to overthink simple things because of how many detailed instructions there were over simple things. Some, however, felt that the video was made out of malice and that it was unnecessary of her to make the video in the first place. One person comments “I don’t get why you need to mock her. It’s just rude of you. You don’t value the difference because you made a video mocking the person.”

In a response to the comment, she notes that many people were getting very upset with her video. She says that she disagrees with the comment because although she found the host’s quirks humorous, she still respected her and her wishes and did not think badly of her or intend to purposely mock her. All in all, the main concern from many viewers was if she left a review or not to warn other renters so they are aware.
