Airbnb Will Let Neighbors Give Feedback On Unruly Renters

It's not yet clear if this data will be made public

Neighbors of Airbnb hosts will soon be able to complain about unruly renters, Bloomberg Business reports. The company made the announcement in Tokyo, where it will go live first, followed by the rest of the world in the next few weeks.

The startup has received increasing pushback in New York City in recent months for allegedly deleting listings to bolster its image and for allegedly allowing several illegal listings to operate.

This new feature seems like yet another move on the company's part to soothe ruffled feathers and give aggrieved neighbors an outlet to voice their concern. There are increasing concerns that major sporting events lead to many of the rentals turning into "party houses," according to Bloomberg.

Airbnb has not commented on whether this data will be made public or how exactly they will respond to feedback.
