I had a room in my house listed on AirBnB, but took it off because my privacy is worth more than a few euro.
The first renters were a mother and her student son who were moving the student back home and needed one night sleep in between. They had a well-written profile with a few photos that gave me the idea I could trust them, also including a few good reviews. My house is not set up for commercial renting, it is stocked with food and alcohol that cannot be locked away.
The second renter who applied had an arabic name and no profile at all, also no reviews. While my initial thought was to turn him down, instead I mailed him for more information 'to see if my room would be the best for him'. Turned out he was an arabic man who worked in Europe for a few weeks sent on a business trip by his employer, and had wife and children and was very western-oriented. As I explained him he would not get any rooms without a full profile (and preferably some good reviews as profiles can be made up), so people could familiarize them with him. Trusting him into their house. In the end he did look further for a place closer to tourist attractions.
My point is that if AirBnB starts anonymizing renters to hide the information I need to trust someone into a private house, into my private space, I must conclude there might be something wrong with them. So I stopped renting my room. On my holidays I use AirBnB a lot, but more than 50% of the places are not AirBnB purists but hotels and guesthouses anyway.
