As of Friday, users without a history of positive reviews on Airbnb won’t be allowed to make one-night reservations in entire home listings for that weekend.

The company said it would also implement “more stringent restrictions” on two-night home reservations that “may pose heightened risk for disruptive parties.” One of the approaches would be leveraging its technology restricting certain local and last-minute bookings by users without a history of positive reviews.
