Providing essential amenities for guests

Every place is different—and that’s what makes travel so fun. But all guests want the basic items that they’ll need to have a comfortable stay.

We strongly encourage Hosts to provide these essential amenities in all their listings:

  • Toilet paper
  • Soap (for hands and body)
  • One towel per guest
  • One pillow per guest
  • Linens for each guest bed

You can message your guests to ask what they need. And offer greater quantities for larger groups and longer stays. Of course, the more amenities you offer, the more enticing your place becomes.

There’s even an Essentials category that you can select if you have the basic requirements covered.

Adding or editing amenities

  1. Click Listings and select the listing you want to edit
  2. Under Listing editor, click Your space
  3. Click Amenities
  4. Click + to add amenities or click Edit to delete amenities
  5. Review, and then click Done

Listings that have the essential amenities option selected but don’t actually provide the items may be subject to penalties, including removal from Airbnb.
