Hostels / Hotels a list of the best.
PLEASE: Submit your ideas, and stories.

I take a shower, than have to pack a wet towel.   
Smells!!!! after a long bus trip.

The last day in a hotel, I use the sheet off the bed to dry. I do
however make
sure I hang it up, so it can dry.

Directions to somewhere. i.e. Hotel, tourist attraction.

Ask 3 times from 3 separate people.   Than if you are walking, or

The rack above your bus seat. You fall asleep, and your bag disappears.
