Friends create 'world's worst Airbnb' and actually receive interest
A group of friends who set out to create the ‘world’s worst Airbnb’ in a north London field were shocked when they received interest for the listing.
The friends Rhys Simmons, Jamie Kamaz and Hitchin created the spot by placing a mattress and a bedside table (which was complete with two glasses of water and an unplugged lamp) underneath a tree.
The trio are behind YouTube channel Passion Squad – an entertainment variety channel showcasing all kinds of stunts, pranks and quirky content.
Rhys, from Enfield, said: ‘Myself and some mates came together to create the worst Airbnb ever seen.
‘We gathered together a load of items we found on Facebook for free to assemble a terrible Airbnb experience.’
To their surprise (although maybe not so bizarre for 2020), the listing received some interest from people wanting to come and stay at the ‘establishment.’
Had the friends decided to take punters’ money, they would have turned a profit.
The group decided to embark on this particular project because they were displeased with the price of their last Airbnb stay.
Rhys said: ‘We were not pleased with the previous price on our last Airbnb stay, so we decided to take it upon ourselves to make our own.
‘It led us to create what is almost definitely the worst Airbnb ever created.
‘This was an insane accomplishment. To create the worst Airbnb in the world and then get a crazy amount of requests to stay is something that we will never forget.
‘You never know, we may have to open this thing up for full-time business!’
For anyone searching for a considerably nicer (and warmer) place to stay, these are the most wish-listed homes on Airbnb.
