We all love helping ourselves to the complimentary soaps and shampoos at hotels. After all, a freebie is a freebie whether or not you need it! Unlike hotels, many Airbnb hosts often choose to go the bulk shampoo route to be a little bit easier on the environment and save precious money and time.
With so many options on the market, it can be difficult to find the best dispenser to suit your needs. Rental Recon is here to help! Below are my top 3 BEST Airbnb shampoo dispensers that are sure to up your Airbnb’s shower game immensely.
What are the 3 best Airbnb shampoo dispensers for hosts?
Follow along for a detailed review of each product to see which one fits YOUR needs!
TOP PICK: simplehuman Triple Wall Mount Shower Pump
This is our favorite soap dispenser for vacation rentals. It’s elegant, simple to use, nice to look at, and easy to clean.
The simplehuman Triple Wall Mount Shower Pump is my top overall pick for your Airbnb shampoo dispensing needs. I love the elegant look of the stainless steel finishes and the clear dispensing containers.
The fact that it features three separate dispenser (unlike so many more, which often only have two containers) means you can keep your guests well taken care of by offering shampoo, conditioner, and body wash.
Many people no longer bring these commonly used items along with them on vacation since they assume their accommodation will provide some. Don’t leave your guests hanging! Stocking a variety of supplies will allow everyone to have a great showering experience, even if they forgot their own supplies at home!
I give this dispenser a 10 out of 10 for design. It is stunning, and definitely a far cry from a bunch of disposable plastic shampoo bottles. I firmly believe in giving guests the experience that they’re paying for, so why not make every little thing as nice as it can be?
Capacity and functionality gets an 8.5 out of 10. Each container hold 15 ounces, which should be more than enough to get you through several stays. It’s not terribly huge, though, so be sure to stay on top of the supply levels so you don’t run out. It also features a convenient razor holder on the side, which is a nice touch.
For value, I give this dispenser a 7 out of 10. It is certainly the priciest model on the list, but you are paying for a bit of luxury.
Rental Recon Tip: Wondering what to put in your fancy new dispenser? Bulk shampoo is always my top recommendation! Don’t waste time transferring store-bought shampoo from bottle to bottle, only to throw out the extra packaging. This takes up too much time and money! Buying in bulk allows you to save a lot and be kind to the planet. Check out our Best Bulk Shampoo for Airbnb article…>>
Runner Up: Better Living Products 76354 Euro Series TRIO 3-Chamber Soap and Dispenser
The Better Living Shampoo Dispenser is my runner up because it gives you the functionality of a pricey model without the, well, price tag! It’s a little less sleek looking than the others, but it holds a good amount of product and also has three chambers so you can provide your guests with everything they need.
Its design earns it a 7 out of 10. While it isn’t as flashy of luxurious looking as the simplehuman dispenser, it still is simple enough to blend in to any bathroom décor.
It has a good capacity, comparable to the simplehuman dispenser, but no other real bells and whistles. It does have labels for each compartment which is a nice touch. I give it an 8.5 out of 10 for capacity and functionality.
It offers a great value for its price point, earning it an 8.5 out of 10 for Bang for Your Buck.

Best Budget Option: Cornucopia Brands 16-Ounce Clear Glass Boston Round Bottles
The best budget option for hosts…
Finally, our BEST budget option is the Cornucopia Brands Glass Boston Round Bottles. I personally love the look of these, although they admittedly aren’t as functional as a wall-mounted dispenser. They are glass, so they might be prone to breaking as well.
For design, I give them a 7/10. They aren’t anything special, but they do have a classic and inconspicuous look that will work well in any setting. You could buy a few sets and use them for hand or dish soap dispensers as well!
Capacity and functionality also come in at a 7 out of 10. There are only two bottles per set, so unless you purchase multiple sets you are limited to just offering shampoo and conditioner to your Airbnb guests.
Value is where these bottles shine, earning them a 9 out of 10. The glass construction is sturdy (although still very breakable), and the pumps are high-quality stainless steel that is rust-resistant.
Now that your bathroom is stocked up, stylish, and ready to go, don’t forget about the rest of the absolutely ESSENTIAL supplies for vacation rentals!
