Typically, a host should ideally have a maximum of a 24-hour time period between your booking request and their response. However, if a host does not respond to you, in the meantime you should always search more options and request to book them. A host may take more than 24 hours to respond to you, so it's better to try booking other places you may be interested in as opposed to waiting for one host.
