Airbnb host’s list of nightmare bathroom requests goes viral

An Airbnb guest has called out his host for giving his guests some peculiar bathroom guidelines.

Ian Hickton took to Twitter to post the cleaning guidelines for using the bathroom left for him by his host, likening them to the TV characters Harvey and Val from The League of Gentlemen, who are known for their strict and confusing house rules.

“Actual house rules from the Airbnb I stayed at last night. Is this where @LeagueOfGentlem got the inspiration for Harvey and Val,” he said.

Among the myriad of requests made by the host, guests are asked to use a squeegee to remove any water clinging to the glass, tiles or window after showering, wipe down the tap, and avoid splashing the mirror in the bathroom.

Which are pretty minor requests we can only assume were supposed to ease unsuspecting travellers into what comes next.

“The purpose of the toilet brush is to remove any signs of your passage, of whatever colour, from inside the toilet (above and below the waterline), from the toilet rim, and from the underside fo the toilet seat,” the guideline said.

“The use of the toilet brush is not optional. Please make sure you do not leave any traces of your passage.”

But wait, it gets worse.

“Gentlemen, it would be highly appreciated if you took a seat both for number one and for number two.”

Apparently, it didn’t stop there. Twitter user Paul Gregan asked if the arrow at the end of the page meant there were more rules.

“Oh there was much more,” Hichton said.

Unsurprisingly, Twitter users have expressed both delight and horror in the host’s guidelines.

In other words, “even though you have paid the air bnb cleaning fee, we want it to look as if the bathroom is clean for the next check in so we don’t have to do anything!” one user responded.

“Insist on taking a seat for a number two? How dare they,” said another.

Travel Weekly approached Airbnb for comment on whether rules of this kind are acceptable, but has not yet received a response.
