Dorms on Airbnb
This page explains how setup your property in Beds24 to sell DORMS in Airbnb.com
Airbnb supports dorms. We can send inventory/how many beds are available.
You have a room type (dorm) with multiple individual beds (Unit Allocation = one per guest). 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.
Pricing for Shared room
If you use Pricing Model = Per Occupancy Pricing, then Airbnb does not limit the number of guests based on the inventory sent from Beds24.
You need to set your Daily Price with 'Price for'= Upto 1 person and NO Extra Person Price.
Go to PRICES > DAILY PRICE SETUP > edit your DAILY PRICE and set 'Prices For' = Upto 1 person.
