·2-min read

A Scottish influencer’s hotel etiquette has the internet divided. 

Decode and demystify Gen Z's latest online slang terms with In The Know's new glossary.

Darren Dowling, aka Dazza, is famous on Facebook for reviewing fish and chips at local restaurants. When Dowling shared a photo of how he left his hotel room just before checkout, people had some strong reactions. He stripped his mattress of all of its sheets and bedding and folded them into piles with the pillows. He then left them at the edge of the bed for the cleaner to collect more easily.

“I always try and leave a hotel room like this. Is this the right or wrong thing to do?” Dowling said in the caption.

Many people thought Dowling went overboard, suggesting the cleaners are there for a reason. 

“They literally pay people to do that,” one person said

“Housekeeping is a thankless, hard job. The condition some rooms are left in is astonishing, even after just one night,” someone weighed in

“I do this in hotels! I use[d] to be a housekeeper and I was always delighted when the bed was stripped,” another wrote

An anonymous Holiday Inn housekeeper encouraged guests to do what Dowling did, but said it wasn’t expected.

“It’s not necessary or expected,” the housekeeper told Business Insider. “But it’s really sweet when a guest takes apart their bed before they leave because you have to clean so many rooms in a certain amount of time. It helps a lot. Also, put all your used towels in a pile together on the floor.”
