The Facilities

Dorms
Dorm Bed $21.02
Dorms are available that sleep 3, 6, 9, or 12 people. The smaller 3 bed rooms are perfect for travelers who want a quieter shared space to sleep, while the 12 bed bunks are more affordable and offer a social setting with other travelers. The beds in each room include outlets, hooks, security lockers, and more. The bunks are three beds high, so many guests prefer the bottom bunks.
