Airbnb's business model has drawn both positive and negative critiques. Customers can often save money by staying in a private home rather than a hotel, but some in government have expressed displeasure that Airbnb hosts do not pay hotel taxes. But here's another, very local wrinkle -- a recent Airbnb television ad features a Jamaica Plain resident who says that, because she's an Airbnb host, she can afford to stay in her home. When Andrea had trouble footing her housing bills, she turned to Airbnb and began hosting travelers from around the world in her Jamaica Plain "urban oasis," according to the ad. Today, Andrea shares her home with guests and uses the money to make ends meet, while also advocating for local businesses and her JP community.
