Most of us associate hotels and Airbnbs with holidays—a special time that doesn't come around too often. A time we want to make the most out of. So, naturally, we're super excited to get away, stay in a lovely hotel, and chill by the pool. Just relax. However, sometimes our expectations aren't met. Maybe the carpet design makes our room look like a bloody crime scene, or maybe the ceiling of your bathroom is so low, you have to kneel in order to take a piss. To remind you not to skip the reviews before booking, Bored Panda has compiled a list of hotel and Airbnb fails that aren't doing these establishments any favors. Continue scrolling and check out the pictures!

Something tells me, however, that we shouldn't expect hotels and Airbnbs to fix these problems anytime soon. Their main priority right now is survival. In November, 71% of hoteliers said they won't make it another six months without further federal assistance given current and projected travel demand, and 77% of hotels reported they will be forced to lay off more workers. Without further government assistance, nearly half (47%) of respondents indicated they would be forced to close hotels. More than one-third of hotels said they will be facing bankruptcy or be forced to sell by the end of 2020.

The package includes a second round of PPP funding and other benefits that will help the hospitality industry.

"The legislation contains many of the provisions AHLA has advocated for, including a second round of Paycheck Protection Program loans, increasing the size of PPP loans to 3.5 times payroll and making PPP loan expenses tax-deductible," Rogers explained. "This will provide a critical lifeline for hotels and other businesses that have been decimated by the pandemic. Other hotel industry priorities include a one-year extension for Troubled Debt Restructuring (TDR) relief so that banks can continue working with borrowers to gain additional forbearance and debt relief, business meal deductibility through 2022, and expanded Employee Retention Tax Credit."

While this relief is welcome, leaders want to believe that it is just the beginning. "More will be needed to restore the 4.5 million travel jobs lost in the travel and tourism industry, but the process that produced this agreement is hopefully a positive sign for what will be possible to achieve in the next Congress,” Roger Dow, president/CEO, U.S. Travel Association, said.

Anything for you guys. Just save this list and deal with the issues in the pictures after the pandemic is over, OK?

Doubanji

Read the title carefully, it says *hostel* not hotel. Most hostels have shared rooms for many people making this sign a lot more logical... The last hostel I stayed in there were 6 bunk beds lining the two long walls. The last thing any of us wanted was for someone to start having sex in their bunk!!
