Airbnb makes me list this as shared. Personally, I think it is more private than shared. This is a private room in the sense that you have your own space. However, it does not have a door and there is a guest room nearby which also does not have a door. The other room has sheets over the entrance. Although there are 2 couches in the room you will get both of them if you book the room. Please note that this is an open space. You will hear noise and other people will hear you.
