Metal Bunk Beds in Hostels – The Hostel Experience is ‘Evolving’

metal bunk bedsHOSTELS HAVE DESPERATELY BEEN IN NEED OF A REBRAND, BUT SLOWLY WE ARE WITNESSING THE EMERGENCE OF ‘LUXURY’ AND ‘HOSTEL’ IN THE SAME SENTENCE, BUT WHY?

THE KEY IS TO RAISE AWARENESS THAT THE HOSTELLING EXPERIENCE IS EVOLVING. LONG BE RID OF THE STEREOTYPICAL VIEW – BUT A LUXURY EXPERIENCE; ANTI ESTABLIMENTARIANISM TO THE FULLEST!

Why Hostels are the Next Best Thing?

But what were hostels originally designed for???

Yes, there are the negative connotations surrounding hostels, as the cheap dirty alternative for the low budget traveller, but these are soon being forgotten. Long gone are the days whereby dirty travellers are given no option but to ‘slum’ it in the nearest cheapest place to rest their head. Well now, as innovation takes place, we have witnessed the emergence of a massive gap in the market.

Hostels can be more than just a place to rest ones head for the evening at the end of an adventurous day. Long gone are the days where hostels are associated with low budget, young minded cheap travellers. A new market has opened whereby hostels aren’t just the next place to meet fellow ‘urban explorers’, or host your next party, many are now being utilised as places to conduct business meetings, with the urban flex and hybrid feel of a hostel, yet professionalism of a hotel. Welcome; the new breed offering comfortable dorms, private comfortable rooms, along with conference rooms to help conduct meetings at LOW-cost pricing.

The key trend we are noticing is that older people are ‘travelling younger.’ People who backpacked in their 20s are now 36 or 37 and still enjoy the freedom that independent travel offers them. Some hostels have noticed this trend and have upgraded their facilities to help cater to their specific needs; which is where we come in!

How WE can help by kitting out your hostel?

Bed Bugz

Pest control company Rentokil reports a 70 percent increase in cases in the past three years. They can be difficult to detect because more than half of us don’t react to the first bite. Another 10 percent never react at all. Many people take weeks or even months to notice, and by then they have an infestation on their hands. Contrary to popular opinion, bed bugs are not the result of poor domestic hygiene. If you have them, they probably hitched a lift in your luggage during your last holiday abroad. Hotels are a big source, as are cruise ships, hostels and even airline seats.

To help combat this, here at Charterbrae, we use only tubular metal bed frames, where bed bugs cannot infest and hibernate. However, if you are worried about them already being present, we have another solution: our new two-way stretch, stitch bond mattress covers offer a barrier to the bed bugs lying dormant within the mattress.

Yes, the cheap alternative PVC covers are another solution in combatting the problem of bed bugs, but they are highly uncomfortable and unpleasant to sleep on. This is the reason as to why we have developed a highly technical system derived from the care home industry that combines an anti-fungal and anti-bacterial barrier along with a 10% water vapour permeability, the material has a two-way stretch making them the best all round mattress for hostels and hotels alike!
