I'm simply amazed that anybody would use it.
The heightened expectation that something will afflict the person who you are booking with suggests that you worry about things that are highly unlikely to happen. Maybe you think all Hosts are prone to ill health. It’s kinda creepy to think all Hosts are sickly.
Most people who book Airbnb do so for reasons already discussed, like price, convenience, location, sharing a property with family or friends, facilities like a kitchen etc. If you haven’t tried it, you should.
