I was wondering how many hostels here assign specific beds to guests? In my opinion, the time it saves on housekeeping isnt worth it. a) too many people pick other beds and b) its one more thing to worry about when trying to fit in bookings.
I do understand the appeal and I'm sure if it works well its great but has anyone else just found it to be too much trouble? I've worked in places that assign beds, dont assign (just pick one) and one that used bed tags (attach this to whichever bed you take). What system(s) do other people here use?
I ask not only for my own research purposes but I also want to try and convince the boss here to ditch the idea and try something else.
