In order for a listing to be a part of this selection, it has to pass at least 100+ point inspection by an IRL Airbnb staff member. These homes are also ranked higher in search, and are listed in a special section in the mobile app. To be an Airbnb Plus host, you’ll need to pay a one-time fee of $149 to apply.

If you think these fancy listings are more expensive, CEO Brian Chesky said that it’s not. The average price is less than $250/night, meanwhile the listings contain a certain level of quality, including: fast Wi-Fi, fantastic bedding, well-stocked kitchen, and amazing customer service so that travelers can reach Airbnb whenever something wrong happens.

Airbnb Plus is now available in 13 cities with 2,000 listings.
