People Divided Over Guest's Hotel Etiquette After Leaving Room

There are various ways people leave hotel rooms. First of all there are the ones in a rush to get to the airport, or meet check-out time so they stuff their belongings into their case and dash.

Then there are those that tidy around a little, make the bed look presentable, double check that nothing has left the minibar (those charges are enough to make you file for bankruptcy).

Finally are those - like Scottish content creator, Dazza - that empty the bins, throw all the towels into the bath and fully strip the bed - removing the duvet cover and pillowcases.

Dazza, who is best known for his 'Does it Fry' show, posted a picture on his Facebook profile showing all the bedding at the end of the bed, the stripped duvet and pillow cases nearly folded and all his rubbish emptied from the room bin - waiting patiently to be taken outside.

He asked his fans whether it's right or wrong to do this with many agreeing that it's 'common courtesy' while others have said that housekeepers are 'paid to clean'.

Despite trying to do the right thing just like Dazza, one person explained how he was handed a fine by the Spanish hotel he was staying at, explaining: "They claimed the room was 'messy' as I stripped the beds and put any rubbish in a bin bag and put them nicely in the corner of the room. Had to pay €60."

Someone else added: "I've always been one to stack plates for the waiter/waitress and to return glasses to a bar. But I've never considered doing this in hotels. You bet I'm going to start though!"

Others weren't so sure and said they don't and wouldn't do the same. One explained: "They literally pay people to do that tho."

Another said: "I just leave it as is. It's what they get their pay check to do?"

Many people commented on Dazza's post who claim to work in the cleaning industry, with one writing: "As a housekeeper, this makes me very happy when customers do this, saves us an extra job and makes it easier."

Another agreed, saying: "You have no idea how much things like this are appreciated. As you have time targets to hit per room and this is a massive help. Top man."

"From all hospitality works we salute you," someone else said, adding: "Yes we are paid to clean but it's human decency to just clean up after yourself."

If you can make someone's job easier with minimal effort then why the hell not?
