A US couple has claimed they spotted a spooky channel on their TV showing their Airbnb’s bathroom.
In the video, Brandon Robert, 24, and his unnamed girlfriend can be heard describing the horrifying experience.
While flipping through the channels, the couple said they came across the live stream before confirming it was their toilet.
“So we stay in an Airbnb and flip the channels,” Brandon says while showing footage of the TV screen showing a toilet.

‘What is that? Is that ours?’ answered the woman.
“He hasn’t moved and we’re too scared to get up. I’m going to throw up,” the 24-year-old said, before adding that his girlfriend went to the bathroom to see if she “came up” on screen.
A few moments later, Brandon is heard gasping as he sees his girlfriend appear on screen.
The pair then shared that they believed the camera was hidden in one of the “openings,” adding that they would receive updates once they “went to the store to get a ladder.”
In a follow-up video, Brandon claimed the couple moved into a “new Airbnb” after the “authorities got involved.”
Though the couple is yet to give any further updates, Brandon frequently posts prank and prank videos on his TikTok, leading some to speculate if the Airbnb footage was genuine.
However, it wouldn’t be the first time travelers have discovered hidden cameras in an Airbnb.

In the past, Daily Dot reported that Brittany Walsh from Texas claimed she found a hidden camera disguised as a charger in her Airbnb bathroom.
Although she never released an update, the accommodation market said in a statement to Daily Dot: “Airbnb strictly prohibits covert cameras and recording devices of any kind in private spaces such as bathrooms and bedrooms.
“We take this allegation very seriously and our dedicated security team is thoroughly investigating it.”
Airbnb states on its website that cameras are “allowed” if visitors are “informed” and the camera does not “violate” a guest’s privacy.
“To give hosts and guests peace of mind, security measures such as security cameras and noise monitoring devices are allowed as long as they are clearly stated in the listing description and do not invade another person’s privacy,” the website reads.
It added: “Devices should never monitor private spaces (e.g. bedrooms, bathrooms or common areas used as sleeping areas, such as a living room with a sofa bed). Disconnected devices are allowed as long as they are turned off and proactively disclosed to guests.’
Social media users were shocked by Brandon’s video, with many noting that they don’t use the rental company because they’re too scared of going through a similar situation
Airbnb allows cameras for “viewing or monitoring only a public space (e.g., a front door or driveway) or a common room, which will be clearly identified and disclosed prior to a reservation. Common areas do not include sleeping areas or bathrooms.”
Social media users were shocked by Brandon’s video, with many noting they don’t use the car rental service because they are too scared of a similar situation, while others urged him to “call the police.”
“I would go and go to a normal hotel. Stuff like that keeps me from using Airbnb,” wrote one TikTok user.
Another user added, “That’s not why I make them!”
“So I check everything, vents, clocks, holes in walls, mirrors, anything that’s handy to be honest,” said another.
One user commented, “I hope you called the police.”
“Surprised people still use Airbnb honestly, I understand they can be great but it’s patchy, I’ve seen too many horror stories like this,” wrote a fifth person.
