What are essential amenities?
Essential amenities are the basic items that a guest expects in order to have a comfortable stay. These include:
- Toilet paper
- Soap (for hands and body)
- One towel per guest
- One pillow per guest
- Linen for each guest bed
Recommended quantities of each item depend on the number of guests and the length of their stay. For longer stays, if you provide extras of each amenity, this ensures guests have everything they need.
You can decide whether you want to make each guest bed or leave the bed linen neatly piled. We encourage hosts to communicate with their guests during the booking process to get their preference.
We strongly encourage hosts to provide essential amenities in all their listings.
