Although Airbnb provides feedback and ratings on its listings to allow renters to get the "lowdown" on what each property has to offer, the popular rental site decided to highlight the best of the best when it comes to hospitality. Airbnb recently published its list of those hosts who give a little more than others and listed the "Most Hospitable Host in Every U.S. State"

According to the site, Airbnb identified the most hospitable among tenured Hosts in the US for 2023 by using the following criteria:

  1. Hosts had to have achieved 100% 5-star ratings in the following categories: Cleanliness, Check-in, and Communication.
  2. To raise the bar even further, we set the minimum number of reviews at 100.
  3. Many states had more than one Host who achieved this incredible standard of 100% in all three categories. To narrow it down to the “most hospitable” Host in those states with more than one qualifying Host, the tiebreaker went to whoever had the greatest number of reviews.
