  • Hi, we are 5 people and booking.com is recommending a 4 person dorm room. This does not seem right or is it possible to put a mobile bed in a 4 dorm?

    Dear guest, This is indeed not possible. We do not have mobile beds. I would recommend booking our Superior Suite or five several beds in our shared dorms. Best regards, Team Generator Amsterdam
