I've used Agoda quite a few times, for hotels & hostels. Never had a problem. 

 

Not iused Airbnb yet in China though I've used it in Europe a lot the last couple of years. Up to now always had a good experience

I've used Airbnb and it was great, paid with Alipay and saved a lot in Sanya, Hainan, China.  Sanya doesn't allow expats to stay in cheap hotels, so they tried to force me to stay in a Hotel that is 5 stars for 3800 RMB for 2 nights only.

i used airbnb and once the police came and I had to leave because the apartment was not legally registered for business.

I am pretty sure most apartments in PRC are not and this can happen. Guess a neighbour was pissed and called the police...

Enjoyed a weekend in Beijing recently using AirBnb. A pleasant experience, albeit pricier than staying in a hostel.

A:Wow, you really found that nitpicky talking point that elevates the fossil fuel industry to the same level as the interests of humanity. Isn't it all just a "liberal" scam, if you don't look too closely at the absence of logic? "Yes, it must be. My masters are hinting that that's what I should believe!"

You've made it clear you are consciously ignoring the pollution and global warming. Since your handlers, the conservative establishment whose dismantling of the carbon credit system and environmental destruction you choose to ignore, have made it clear you should bark in this direction, you are eager to please!

Such an admirably domesticated, dependable, subservient human. I'm sure your handlers will throw you a bone while they bring home the bacon for themselves. You're so obedient, you deserve a doggie cookie! Who's a good boy? You are! Yes, you are. U-S-A! Woof woof woof! -- coineineagh
