If you’ve stayed at an Airbnb, there’s a good chance you’ve run into a host who’ll basically leave you a check-out list, asking you to clean up after your stay. It’s never really made sense why some Airbnb hosts will make their guests clean up after your stay — and then charge a substantial cleaning fee.
… One Airbnb host took to TikTok to explain why he would never leave his guests a long list of check-out chores, and how he wants to make the process as smooth as possible. The TikToker, named John-Michael Thomas, explained why he makes the checkout process easy for his guests: “You’re on vacation. You’re not a housekeeper. The hosts who do this chore stuff drives me insane.”
… He explained that he puts his checkout process instructions on the back of the door and his instructions are: “Close the door.” And then in small, italicized letters it says: “Yep, that’s it, that’s all you need to do. Try to remember to lock it.”
