In February some friends and I booked Airbnb accommodation for four in Amsterdam for three nights in early April at a total cost of £544. All seemed fine and we exchanged messages with our hosts who said they would give us the keys on arrival day. But about an hour before we arrived Airbnb called to cancel. “Personal reasons” were cited, while our hosts emailed to claim the owner had rented it to a friend.
