Airbnb will revive rules aimed at curbing summer parties

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Airbnb says it’s taking steps to prevent people from throwing parties at houses they rent for the Memorial Day and July 4 holidays.

Airbnb said Wednesday that it will bring back restrictions that it says worked last summer.

Many customers will be barred from making one-night reservations for houses, and there will also be limits on who can make two-night bookings. The company says the restrictions won’t apply to renters who have a history of good reviews from Airbnb hosts.

Airbnb has long faced criticism over large parties, some of which have turned violent, at properties listed by its hosts.
