Choosing a bunk bed to sleep in at home is one thing. Finding the correct one for use in a hostel is a different matter altogether.
Because of the sheer number of people who will use these beds, many of whom are adults, they’re going to be subjected to a greater degree of wear and tear than those we have in our own bedrooms. The beating these beds take is often intensified due to the fact that those using them are people who have made no financial investment in the product. As a result of these factors, there are certain details that need to be kept in mind when considering a double decker bed for hostel use.
What You’ll Want to Look For in a Bunk Bed
Bunk beds are an obvious and efficient choice for hostels simply because of the conservation of space they provide. But the first thing to remember is that you’ll want to look for beds that have a steel frame. One reason for this is their durability. This is especially important in bunk beds due to the fact that the upper bunk requires climbing – so safety is a factor.
Additionally, metal frames won’t swell as the temperature changes. Swelling can cause wood frames, in particular, to become unsafe as a result of stress it places on their joints. Metal also won’t splinter or warp over time, and it’s less easily damaged.
Why ESS Universal’s Double Decker Beds Are Perfect for Hostels
When dealing with large numbers of guests, as you are with hostels, it’s preferable to have a bed frame that’s easy to set up. And that’s exactly what you’ll have with ESS Universal’s bunk beds. They’re plenty sturdy, but they aren’t labor-intensive.
ESS Universal’s bunk beds are also quiet — a major advantage. The bed frames contain no springs, so you won’t hear the annoying squeaks so often encountered as beds age, especially when they are heavily used. This is a particularly attractive quality when making purchases for multi-beds environments such as hostels. No one wants to be the one whose bed is keeping everybody else in the room awake.
Additionally, the covers on the water-resistant mattresses make no sound, even when users toss and turn in their sleep. And the bunk beds are available in custom colors, too. So they provide not only durable and quiet rest areas, but they’re aesthetically pleasing, as well!
Further Appealing Factors in a Double Decker Bed for Hostel Use
Bedbugs are another consideration – and hostels are notorious for having them. ESS Universal’s bed frames are engineered to be resistant to these persistent pests, providing hostel visitors greater peace of mind as they doze.
Hostels require a large number of beds. An investment like this is not to be taken lightly, and it’s best to look for maximum quality and visual appeal. ESS Universal’s bunk beds provide excellence in both areas and offer a well-built, quiet setting for road-weary guests that will leave them with positive memories of their experience.
