Packing for Airbnb or Hostel

Here are a few things in addition to the Basic Packing List and International Packing List that I typically bring when staying at an Airbnb or Hostel:

  • Sleeping Sheet (in case there are none provided) – see My Favorite Travel Products to know which one I use.
  • Microfiber Towel – see My Favorite Travel Products to know which one I use.
  • Hand sanitizer and bar soap
  • Small bag of toilet paper (off the roll and in a plastic bag)
  • collapsable pillow
  • Flip Flops to wear in the shower
  • Alarm that has the ability to vibrate – so as to not wake the rest of the people in the room
  • Power Strip with a country appropriate converter – see My Favorite Travel Products to know which one I use. – some hostels have one plug for several people
  • Shower caddy (with hook) – see My Favorite Travel Products to know which one I use.
  • Camera Equipment
  • headlamp or flashlight – this is extremely useful if you have to get up in the middle of the night and are sharing the room with several other people if there is not a light for each bed

What would you add to this list?
