Do any experienced travelers have a sense of roughly what percentage of hostels offer sheets/pillowcases? Or are these necessary items I need to bring with me?

I think all hostels have sheets and pillowcases, it’s just whether or not you have to pay for them. You can bring a sleep sheet (take a queen size flat sheet, fold it in half, and sew up the bottom and 2/3 of one side so it looks kinda like a sleeping bag… or you can just buy one for like $30 at REI or somewhere) and pillowcase if you want to, but I have never found sheets to be dirty or anything.
