What if I don’t provide essential amenities in my listing?
While we don’t require hosts to provide essential amenities in their listing, we strongly encourage it. Guests have told us that these are the items they expect for a comfortable stay. And when viewing potential places to stay, guests are able to see the amenities you offer and filter to only see listings that offer the amenities they feel are important.
Adding essential amenities to your listing
If you are providing the full list of essential amenities in your space, you can indicate this on your listing. Click the Essentials option under the Amenities tab.
Only click essentials if you are providing each item on the list above. Recommended quantities of each item depends 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.
Listings that have the essential amenities option selected but don’t actually provide the items (toilet paper, soap for hands and body, one towel per guest, one pillow per guest, linens for each guest bed) may be subject to penalties, including removal from Airbnb.
