Statement from Airbnb on Hoboken “House Party” Ordinance

Airbnb today released the following statement regarding the “house party” ordinance that was passed by the Hoboken City Council last week.


“Airbnb fully agrees with the importance of preventing disruptive house parties, especially as the COVID-19 pandemic continues to impact communities across New Jersey. That’s why Airbnb has taken steps to ban both parties and party houses, going so far as to suspend or remove party houses across New Jersey this summer – including here in Hoboken. We fully support Mayor Bhalla and the City Council as they work to implement this new ordinance and we hope to partner with the city to continue to crack down on parties and party houses, in accordance with public health guidance.”
