  1. Click on the Property tab on the Extranet and select Room Details.
  2. Click on Create a new room.
  3. Under Room type, select Dorm Room from the drop-down menu. A gray banner will appear that says: Dormitory Room: Guests can book an entire private room with beds.
  4. Under Room name, select the type of dormitory you want to sell from the drop-down menu.
  5. Select the number of dormitories of that type that you want to sell.
  6. Under Bed options, select the maximum number of guests that can sleep in the room.
  7. Under What kind of beds are available in this room?, select the bed types and number of each bed type available in the room.*
  8. Click on Continue to finalize and create the dormitory room.

As soon as the privately bookable dormitory room is created, it can take a few hours (max. 48 hours) for it to show publicly on

* We consider a standard bunk bed to be suitable for sleeping 1 guest. If you have wider bunk beds that sleep 2 guests, select Full bed(s) from the drop-down menu. Double bunk bed is not an option on the Extranet.
