Private rooms are usually singles, twins or doubles though some
properties also offer triples. Dormitories vary in size from location to
location but generally range from 4 beds to up to 20 beds (or even more
sometimes in European cities!). Most dormitories offer bunk-beds though
some offer a selection of bunks and regular single or double beds.
Most hostels offer some ensuite rooms - this comes from the French
word meaning 'in the suite' and means that you have your own private
bathroom in your room. A private bathroom is located outside your room
but is for your personal use only. Both will generally consisting of a
toilet, wash-hand basin and shower. Standard or non-ensuite rooms
involve sharing communal shower / toilet facilities which are generally
provided not too far away on the same corridor.
Many hostels have a self-catering kitchen where you can cook your own
meals, some even have their own restaurants, café's and bars. Almost
all hostels offer lockers either free of charge or for hire so that
people staying on dormitories can lock up their valuables. These are
either provided in the dorms or in a separate area.
Some hostels have curfews or lock-outs, though this is becoming less
common - always check the microsite for an individual property before
Almost all hostels provide linen, though some do charge an extra hire
charge - again check the microsites for individual details.
