Are you allowed by your landlord to sublet on Airbnb? Are you making profit? You sure did by renting direct Vs AirBnB - guess that profit is there to cover when things go bad.

If you were subletting illegally (i.e. not authorized by your landlord) then be careful where you take this as your problems may become bigger.

Chalk it up to learning and move on - life is too shot.

First of all, I am allowed to rent or sublet this apartment to whoever I want. The landlord knows I use Airbnb and doesn't care. Second, I do not make any profit from renting the apartment on Airbnb. It only helps me as a student to cover roughly half the rent because it is extremely difficult to find a longterm tenant. Your comment is unhelpful. I did not break any rules with Airbnb by renting to this person off the app. Believe it or not, people actually look for longterm housing and make living arrangements that are not possible using Airbnb, and have done so before Airbnb was a thing.
