If you’re an Airbnb beginner or even a pro who’s looking to upskill, the right bathroom amenities can really make or break a guest’s stay. According to this Airbnb survey, the majority of Airbnb guests state that amenities are near the top of the checklist for a great stay. This blog goes over the basic amenities you need for your Airbnb space and also the more luxurious amenities that will make your space stand out from the crowd and earn you good reviews and increased bookings.

So what amenities are guests looking for?

According to Airbnb, the basic amenities you should supply are:

  • Plenty of toilet paper
  • Hand soap
  • Body soap
  • Shampoo and conditioner
  • A towel for each guest
  • A pillow per guest
  • Linen for each bed

You will also need cleaning products that guests can use, including:

  • Disposable paper towels
  • Disposable/reusable gloves
  • Multi-purpose bathroom cleaner
  • Disinfectant spray/wipes
  • Antibacterial hand sanitiser

iGMS and Bnb Nomad also suggest you should include these amenities:

  • Adjustable water pressure showerhead/hose
  • Bathroom hooks and shelves to hang things up on
  • Towel rack
  • Trash bin with liner
  • Bath mats
  • Hairdryer
  • One-time toothbrush and toothpaste (optional)
  • Floor mat
  • Mirror
  • Good ventilation
  • Toilet plunger
  • Plumbing and septic system
  • First aid kit

What are some tips for managing amenities in your Airbnb space?

iGMS recommends that when you are choosing toiletries for the bathroom, select neutral scents or unscented products. This is a gender-neutral option and will help avoid problems for people with allergies to chemicals.

This organisation also recommends you buy your toiletries in bulk because it’s cheaper, and you will have plenty on hand to refill your toiletries. Bulk toiletries are larger, so there is less time taken to refill them, and less likelihood guests will steal them because they are unlikely to waste space putting them in their luggage.

In the case of towels, they suggest that you include extra towels if your space has a spa/pool/exercise room. Also, make sure you let guests know where the towels are stored and that they (and the rest of the amenities) are there for the guest's use. Sometimes guests may not realise this and think that they have been left behind by the owner (especially if this property is your home/holiday home). You can also let the guests know where the best place is to store the dirty towels (so that it is clear for the cleaner which towels need to be washed).


If stocked correctly, these amenities will make your guests feel like they are staying in a luxurious hotel and are sure to help form a positive impression of your whole Airbnb space (which will help with positive reviews).
