How can I set up individual beds in a dormitory room?

Note: This article explains how to set up individually bookable beds in a dormitory room. If you want to know how to set up a dormitory room that a guest can book privately, in its entirety, read this article.

To set up individual beds in a dormitory room:

  1. Click on the ‘Property' tab in the extranet and select ‘Room Details’.
  2. Click on ‘Create a new room’.
  3. Under ‘Room type’, select ‘Bed in Dormitory’. A grey banner will appear, stating: ‘Bed in Dormitory: Guests can book individual beds within a shared room’.
  4. Under ‘Bed name’, select the type of dormitory the bed is found in.
  5. Under ‘Number of beds (of this type)’, make sure the number of beds selected matches the number of beds available in the room (to avoid overbookings).
  6. Under ‘Bed options’, select the maximum number of guests that can sleep in the bed.
  7. Under ‘What kind of bed is it?’, select the appropriate bed type.*
  8. Click on ‘Continue’ to finalise and create the individually bookable beds in the dormitory.

Once the bed-in-a-dormitory-room type is created, it can take a few hours (max. 48 hours) for the room to show on Booking.com.

* We consider a standard bunk bed to be suitable for sleeping 1 guest. If you have wider bunk beds that sleep 2 guests, select ‘double bed’ from the drop-down menu. ‘Double bunk bed’ is not an option in the extranet.
