On Monday, Twitter user @/daveholtz shared pictures of his Airbnb, writing “Tfw [that feeling when] you arrive at your @airbnb and realise that the whole space is essentially just a large-ish bathroom that the host put a bed into.”

Indeed, his pictures reveal that the Airbnb is a seemingly regular bathroom with a bed beside the toilet.

David Holtz, a professor at the University of California, Berkeley, explained that the listing had “no reviews at the time” he booked but seems to have a few now. He did not share the specific link to the listing but mentioned that the Airbnb was located in London.

The tweet amassed over 13 million views and its sudden popularity prompted a response from Airbnb’s official help account. The company asked Holtz to share the email address connected to his Airbnb account so that they could take a closer look.

“can i expect a different outcome this time?”

Meanwhile, Netizens have reacted to the news with hilarious responses. Twitter handle @/SadCustomers quipped, “The only time that they [Airbnb] assist with cases like this is to save face.”
