Is the Airbnb rent-a-room site really easy money?

A friend has been making £45 a night – but I'm not sure it's as simple as it sounds

Every week a Guardian Money reader submits a question, and it's up to you to help him or her out – a selection of the best answers will appear in next Saturday's paper.

This week's question

A friend has been using the Airbnb website to rent out his spare room occasionally. He gets £45 a night and says he is enjoying it. I am thinking of signing up. Is it really only a case of washing the bed sheets and offering a bit of toast? Anyone else got any experience of it – good or bad?
