After checking into room, most guests can't help but curl up in bed and burrow into the soft pillows, unaware of what kind of bedding they'll actually be sleeping on. A hotel worker told tourists on TikTok how cleaning really works, and that washing after each guest is too expensive.
A former hotel employee claims that bed linen is not always changed after each guest. “Maids have only 30 minutes to clean a standard room and 45 minutes to clean a suite. Do you really think they have time to change every sheet and every towel after every guest?” she asked.
If the bed linen looks clean and the bed looks untouched, then they will not be changed. Instead, the maid will tuck the corners tighter so that the guest cannot move when he is trying to sleep. Of course, if the bed looks dirty or has been touched, the sheets will be cleaned.
“Most hotels have laundry service, and it's too expensive to do after each guest. My advice is to ask for fresh and clean linen at the reception when you check in, or bring your own,” the hotel employee recommended.
Now you can easily buy disposable linen for the hotel. Most of these sets include sheets and pillows made from soft and breathable materials. The linen is also compactly packed to fit easily in a suitcase or hand luggage. This advice is especially relevant for hostel guests.
However, some industry insiders have rebutted the TikTok video's claims in the comments section. One of them wrote: “It's not true, I worked as a maid in Las Vegas hotels for 15 years … sheets are changed and rooms are checked.”
