You can use Hostelz.com to search by either dorm beds or private rooms (in fact, you have to choose one or the other, it always searches dorm beds and private rooms separately).

Unfortunately, no. Airbnb doesn't offer that kind of functionality on their site, but the bigger issue is that they won't allow anyone else to do it either. Why isn't it possible?

If you don't care, and probably you shouldn't, then there are some things you can take with you upon check-out. Taking Consumables As a general rule I would say: you can take anything that is single-serving. For the purpose ...

There is one more issue. If you wash something in the sink, it's wet afterwards (how surprising!). Now, if something is wet, it will need to dry. During the drying process, it will create a lot of humidity. Of course, taking a shower and drying your towel also creates a lot of humidity, but doing laundry just puts an extra dimension to it.
