Tourist in China told to clean toilet 'for the next guest' after Airbnb stay or risk losing $940 deposit

If you wouldn’t wash your dishes after eating at a restaurant, you probably wouldn’t want to clean up after living at an Airbnb either.

However, this Chinese tourist was tasked with just that – at the risk of losing her 5,000 yuan (S$940) deposit, according to multiple reports by Chinese media on Feb 16.

The tourist, surnamed Wang, had aired her complaints on Douyin.

She was on a family trip to Haihua Island in Hainan during the Spring Festival and had booked a 280-square-metre home via Airbnb worth 20,000 yuan for a month beginning on Feb 2.

When Wang’s family left on Feb 15 – just 10 days after they checked in, forfeiting the rest of the money they paid for their stay – they were told that they wouldn’t get their deposit back.

According to the agent that signed the contract with Wang, the family didn’t clean the home well enough before leaving.
