For my upcoming trip to France (mid Sept to early Oct), I've booked some AirBNB lodging and some hostel stays. I've stayed at hostels many times but this will be my first AirBNB experience.
Since I'm traveling solo and only booked rooms, not full apartments, I imagine they will be similar to the pensions where I've stayed in Germany - not so much like a bed and breakfast.
A typical German pension is a person's home with one or more rooms available for paying guests. Sometimes the shower/toilet is private and often it's down the hall. When you arrive, they normally give you a rundown of everything you need to know for your stay and give you a way to come and go on your own schedule. Meals might be provided, and there may be an added cost associated with them, but they aren't an integral part of the normal offering like a bed and breakfast.
Do I have a reasonable expectation or should I be prepared for something else?
