Shared Rooms Help! A shared room (typically a dorm) is a bedroom which you share with other people from the property. The number of beds in a room is shown in the room name, e.g. ‘5 Bed Dorm’, and you can book as many as you need. Some properties have male only dorms and female only dorms.

4 Bed Dorm - Mixed (Shared bathroom)


8 Bed Dorm - Mixed (Shared bathroom)


10 Bed Dorm - Mixed (Shared bathroom)


8 Bed Dorm - Mixed (Shared bathroom)


6 Bed Dorm - Female only (Shared bathroom)

Private Rooms Help! A private room is a room that is not shared with other people from the property – in other words, you book and pay for all the beds in the room. If you are traveling alone, for example, but want to book a double room, you must pay for two people in order to book the whole room.
