Airbnb Over 550,000 Travelers Used Airbnb On New Year’s Eve 2014

Airbnb announced on Monday that on New Years Eve 2014 over 550,000 people stayed in Airbnb listings across the globe.

These stats compare to 5 years ago where only 2,000 people stayed in Airbnb properties. A staggering amount of growth for the platform.

  • Guests stayed in 190 countries
  • In over 20,000 individual cities
  • Including 13,000 people staying in Sydney for the New Years Fireworks
  • Out of that 550,000 people, 91,000 were first time Airbnb guests.

Quite staggering growth in 5 years. It is hard to predict where they will be in 2-3 years, certainly more than a million people and quite possibly much higher. Will be interesting to see how these statistics compare with the Accors and Hiltons of the world in terms of room nights.

Here is all is laid out on a map
