Why must I fill out my profile?

9flats is based on mutual trust. On one hand, guests are looking stay in an accommodation owned by a host they haven’t met before. On the other, host are giving their keys to a guest they don’t know.

A completed profile is an important way of getting to know each other before meeting. Your credibility as a guest or host dramatically increases when you’ve uploaded an image of yourself. A picture speaks a thousand words. So no better place to start than uploading a photo of yourself. Log in to your 9flats profile then click ‘Edit profile’ and then ‘Upload photo’. Make sure you add a friendly photo with your face clearly visible. If a passport style photo is not your thing, try taking a picture that says something about yourself or represents you as a person. Inspiration can be found in other 9flats member profiles like DeniseTim and Markus.


Also, places with host photos are clicked six times more than places without. Booking requests are confirmed more often when they have a photo and some personal information.
