This page explains how to create a virtual room with one bed to map to a DORM for Airbnb.com

Airbnb does not support dorms. We can not send how many beds are available. If one bed is available Airbnb will allow a booking for all beds in the dorm which will cause overbookings.

Example: You have a room type (DORM) with multiple individual beds (Unit Allocation = one per guest) connected to room types at a channel or your own web site. You also want to sell them on Airbnb.com or other channel that requires a bed/unit.

It is assumed you already have setup the room type with the number of beds, if not, create this first. See the details of how to setup DORMS, Hostels https://wiki.beds24.com/index.php/Hostel_and_Retreat_Setup

Create a new room with a quantity of 1 in SETTINGS -> PROPERTIES-> ROOMS->SETUP.

Individual Bed

Go to SETTINGS->PROPERTIES->ROOMS->SETUP and set the bed/unit to have the same characteristics of your DORM.

EXCEPT - Unit Allocation = one per booking Set:

  • Sell Priority = Hide (to not show the bed on your own booking page)
  • Overbooking Protection =Property

Go to SETTINGS->PROPERTIES->ROOMS->DEPENDENCIES and use the following settings for the BED/UNIT room:

  • Requires Availability in = DORM.
  • Combination Logic = 1 unit must be available
  • Dependency Level = Ignore Sub Dependencies
  • Assign Bookings to = First Available Dependency Room

DORM

  • Do not set any "Availability Dependency". Leave "Assign Bookings" set to "This Room" (the default).

Prices

The individual bed/unit can have their own rates and prices or you can set them up to use the DORM prices at SETTINGS->PROPERTIES->ROOMS->DEPENDENCIES->"Use Prices From"

Bookings

If you manually add a booking you need to do this in the "DORM" room not in the individual room/bed.

It is possible that a booking could be made for the BED where there is always an individual bed available but not the same one on each night. In this case the booking will remain in the BED/UNIT room. It is normally possible to reassign the individual room bookings and then manually assign the BED/UNIT room booking to the resulting free space. If you cannot tolerate this situation, you should not be using room types to sell your rooms.

 Note  Test dependencies carefully. If you are using dependencies please test thoroughly to make sure your set up reflects your rules. If you are connecting one physical room more than once to a booking channel you are risking overbookings.
