It's a simple question to find out what happened:

OP, do you pee sitting or standing?

Yeah, but if I was a host and I saw that review, I would think it was unhinged. Can't complain about some one using a bathroom at night.

Something I learned way back in my navy days with ship's heads being notoriously cramped and not having enough urinals to service the demand so after a night of shore leave, get out of the rack to get rid of the beer mean't sitting down as some of the heads you couldn't lift or lower the seat with the door closed so the drill was to stagger in, drop the seat, drop your trunks sit your arse down and relax until finished.. flush, rinse your digits and stagger back to your rack...no conceivable mess left behind for the next guy to unwittingly squat on.

You learned or suffered the blessings of a mess full of pizzed off mess-mates paying you back in ways you cannot possibly imagine. That method has served me well for over 50 years of wedded bliss.

No discolouring of floor tiles from years of those inevitable little fogs of spray from the splashback...and no wet seats to surprise your better half after she's just cooked you a fine dinner.

If a biffy does not have a urinal; sit the hell down to perform your watering off function. Eazy-peazy.

Men always get pee on the toilet, its impossible not to. If you are a guest in someone's especially a women's and you can't blame it on anybody else (just kidding), clean up after yourself. My wife finally got me aware of it and I clean up each time. Nothing worse when a woman sits down and there is pee on the seat or floor. OP there is nothing to do. You are not innocent and the host has a right to complain. Maybe she didn't want to confront you, after all she is not your wife and if you don't know how to clean up after yourself, then you deserve a bad review.

There are people who are very lite sleepers. Every noise wakes them. These people shouldn't be Airbnb hosts. Using the bathroom at night, should never be an issue.

Right it off to experience and avoid renting a room.

I agree with both comments. Id rather rent a motel room then than put up with the owner staying there with me and listening to everything I do and monitoring every move I make.

OP, when I read what the hostess wrote, my first thought was - wow, what a crazy beoch. She shouldn't be renting out rooms on AirBnB.

My second thought was, I don't think you should respond at all. i think other people reading your reviews will see a bunch of great reviews and then a review from someone who sounds like a crazy beoch who shouldn't be renting rooms out on AirBnB.

I'd just leave it alone.

The fact that you are even saying you would have been unaware of a mess, pretty much translates that you did make a mess and that is gross.

I have a husband, we raised three sons. NEVER was there a mess in the bathroom. I do remember my husband taking my sons in the bathroom, closing the door and having a conversation with them about cleanliness. It is not that difficult. There is no such thing as "unaware of a mess".

I have stayed in about 15 airbnbs. I do prefer a private entrance in a private room with my own bathroom, etc. However I have "chosen" to have stay in the "extra room" with a shared bathroom. I already know what I have signed up for, I am extremely quiet and respectful that I am in someone's home.
