  • Does 6 bunks mean there is space for 12 people? I am searching for 4 adults and 5 children and this 6 bunk apartment came up. Thanks!

    A 6-bed apartment consists of literally 6 beds. Sometimes it's possible to put extra beds in the room but it really depends on which apartment one chooses. We have three types. The standard 6-bed apartment consists of 6 beds and can fit one extra bed. The 6-bed Apartment with Sauna consists of 6 beds and fit one extra bed but there will be not much floor space. Our 6-bed Superior Apartment consists of 6 beds and 3 extra beds.

  • Hi. Some dorms are labelled as just "dormitory," while some dorms are labelled as mixed dormitories. What's the difference? Are they also mixed? Thanks.

    When it states mixed dormitory, then it means both male and female can share the room. The other dorm rooms would state it if it's just an only female dorm.
