Bunk beds for hostels. Why is a specialised product so important?

 Bunk beds for hostels) have always been the best option to equip tourist establishments, since they allow for greater savings on space and offer an unbeatable solution for shared accommodation spaces.

That said, it is essential to know how to choose the most suitable bunk beds for hostels since not all rooms are the same which means that establishments often have differing needs.

Considering all of these factors, placing trust in companies that work for the Contract Channel is paramount if we want to ensure we use the suitable facilities for our establishment. For this reason, 30m2 works in this sector to offer the best solutions adapted to each client.

How do we choose bunk beds for hostels?

Choosing a bunk bed is not an easy decision since many aspects such as material, quality, assembly or aesthetics must be taken into account. However, if we want a product that meets all the needs of the tourism sector, it is undoubtedly the range of bunk beds offered by 30m2.

Our locker line features bunk beds designed to maximise space. To bring this idea to life, we incorporated some lower drawers so that travellers can store their belongings and facilitate cleaning and organisation at the same time.

In addition, we also have a selection of Intimate bunk beds, with built-in curtains, and our Duo range, a format that joins together two bunk beds in one model.

Standard bunk types

In order to better understand the difference between the 30m2 bunk beds manufactured especially for the Contract Sector, and the standard bunk beds that are normally manufactured to be installed in private bedrooms, let’s take a look at the most common classic bunk beds:

  • Double bunks: These are the most traditional since we find two fixed beds, fitted one on top of the other.
  • Triple bunk beds: they are the most used since they allow to maximise the number of people who can sleep in the room. However, they are usually cumbersome and too high.
  • Foldable bunks: they are usually the least common in hostels since they have to be unfolded and are not very functional.


Nowadays, hostel bunk beds are made with very resistant materials, so that they can be used by both children and adults and feature excellent durability. The most common materials are metal and wood.

Metal bunk beds

Metal is undoubtedly the most suitable material for designing bunk beds since metal bunk beds are made with ultra-resistant and anti-rust steel. In this way, we get a finished product that is light and enjoys a long useful life.

They are solid, waterproof and don’t wear over time. Perfect for places with little natural light, since they bring more natural light into the room, their structure can be in a round, square or rectangular tube. The bunk beds manufactured by 30m2 are made of steel plate.

Wooden bunk beds

They are usually made from pine wood and give a very natural look to rooms. However, they are not usually as resistant as metal ones and, in addition, they can end up being the home of all kinds of woodworms.
