As Airbnb evolves to welcome more hosts, of different types, onto the platform, the Superhost program will evolve along with it. We have some changes to share with you today, and we’ll continue to keep you in the loop as we work to make the program even more inclusive and rewarding. Here’s what’s new:
We want to support hosts who provide long-term stays, so we’ve changed the criteria from simply 10 stays. For hosts who do more long-term stays (where guests often stay for more than 30 days at a time,) it’s been almost impossible to meet the criteria of a minimum of 10 stays in a year. So we introduced new criteria. Now, if you host 100 nights per year (with a minimum of 3 stays), you can qualify for Superhost status. For hosts that don’t do long term stays, there’s no change. So now hosts can achieve or maintain Superhost status as long as they reach either mark.
At the same time, we’re looking into how we can make the criteria more accessible for those of you who manage multiple properties and have a higher volume of stays. We’ve heard your concerns, and we’re working to adapt the program to recognize the excellent hospitality you provide. You can expect more updates on this in 2019.
A new homepage
You might notice some changes to the Superhost page. We’ve updated it to answer some common questions and give more details about Superhost benefits.
Marketing to guests
We’re also introducing a brand new page about Superhosts, for guests. We want to make sure Airbnb travelers know how special Superhosts are. Now, when they see the Superhost badge on a host’s profile, they’ll have a better understanding of the top-rated hospitality Superhosts are known for providing.
Making the Superhost program more accessible to you, Airbnb’s community of professional hosts, is one of our top priorities. We’re working on changes now and will update you soon. Please stay tuned.
