Lana, I'm really sorry that your first experience using Airbnb was not as smooth as you would've liked it to be.
To address everything you've stated in your review:
1) Hosts do not enter their own response rates - the response rate is directly based on how quickly you are actually responding via the app, I always respond as quickly as possible and Airbnb reflects that for me. When you arrived at my place, I was on an international flight, so I did not receive your messages/calls about the apartment number confusion until I landed (which was in the listing details as you quickly figured out). I responded as soon as I landed, in a panic that you did not know which apartment it was, which has never been an issue in the past. All other exchanges were quick, including requesting additional money from you, which brings me to my second point -
2) I received a call from an unknown number which was her friend asking about the check out time (which is how I found out by surprise that apparently there was a 2nd guest staying almost the entire time with Lana). In my pricing policy, it clearly states that there is an extra $20 per extra guest after the first guest, so I immediately contacted her to resolve this issue. And of course, payment is a crucial and central aspect to Airbnb, that's what makes the whole thing work, otherwise I would just be letting strangers stay at my place for fun. I hope that you can understand that having an unexpected guest staying in your personal home is not a small detail to overlook.
3) Yes, there is a note in my "house rules" stating not to mention the sublet to other neighbors. This does not by any means make the listing "illegitimate" and it would never leave you stranded. It has been "illegal" for a long time now to rent out an entire leased apartment for under 30 days in NYC, unless someone on the lease is there (hotel lobby). The rules and policies are clearly stated on Airbnb, and it is up to Airbnb users to inform themselves about the local rules and policies for subletting/renting. Although, if ever there were to be a problem, it would be on me since I am on the lease, the guest would never be "kicked out" or stranded", I would be if anything. There are indeed illegitimate/scam sublets out there, especially on (Hidden by Airbnb) for example, but not on Airbnb, and definitely not at my place (as my 24 other positive reviews reflect). Also, the house rules are available on my listing upon reserving, so if you didn't agree with it, you could have changed to a different reservation.
4) Although I am deeply saddened to hear you were disappointed and that you left a negative review, I am glad you still managed to enjoy the apartment itself overall and that it was cozy as advertised.
