It's usually a number for how many people the place can accommodate. It's NOT always an indication of the number of beds. (Dictionary defintion - number 7 in this case): to accommodate for sleeping; have sleeping accommodations for For example, a 2 bedroom apartment I'm staying in during August sleeps arguably 8, but only has 4 beds - a double, a ...

This "feature" is called a "Security locker" or "In-room safe" (the latter usually being available in proper hotels, not hostels). You can filter based on that parameter on Hostelworld, for example: Usually the lockers will look something like this: They're divided into several types, ranging in their level of security: In-room safes, a metal box ...

You certainly have more than one option, when it comes to leaving your stuff so you can move around freely: You'd definitely want to ask to the personnel of your accomodation (hotel, hostel, apartment, etc.) if they can store your luggage until you are ready to leave. Most of the accomodations offer this kind of service and usually have a locked room, ...

The historical city center is Saint Jean. Other parts still considered the center are Bellecour, la Croix Rousse, la Part Dieu. Villeurbanne is very close too.I went to college there and it's safe. To walk to the historic town from there take 40mn or so. Although there is a city limit and a sign between the two, you cannot "see" it. Streets just continue on ...

I found myself in the same situation: my girlfriend is away from me and we try to travel often. So I've built a tool to search for flights to a common destination: http://destination.smoogly.ru/

Most hotels and many hostels will have a space you can leave your luggage and collect it later. Enquire about this at the front desk. Some hotels even offer this service to non-residents (although usually for a fee in that case). In the event that you can't make use of this, for example the hotel doesn't offer the serivce, you are staying in self-catering ...

You need the Youth Hostel Association: http://www.yha.org.uk/places-to-stay/london Central London beds from £15/person/night - not quite as cheap as you asked for but probably one of the cheapest you're likely to get, short of a tent or a homeless shelter. Actually, looking on Airbnb there are a couple of places offering beds for as low as £7, and a ...

The word you are looking for is likely Locker. This is fairly common in most hostels and might not be announced on some booking sites. When the site does not mention lockers at all, you should use or double check with an other search site or look on the site of the hostel. Or call the hostel and check whether they do offer the service. I can not remember ...

Basically any hotel will keep the luggage for you - secured - until you pick it up. That might be inconvenient if the hotel is on the other side of town, though. You can check your luggage in right away. Often, airlines allow luggage check-in up to 24 hours ahead of time, but you should verify before you drag it to the airport; and again, that could be ...

We don't do specific recommendation on this site, so the best we can do is give you some ideas of places to look for cheaper accomodations. For purposes of expensive accomodation, you can consider the centre of Paris to be the 1st Arondissemont, essentially the centrepoint of this map. Anything in the area of the Louvre, the Arc de Triomphe and the Eiffel ...

"Number of guests" means the number of people who will be staying in the room. A "guest" in this context is a customer of the hotel.

The actual city centre of Lyon is the so-called Presqu'île, between the Rhône and Saône rivers, between the metro stations Bellecour and Hotel de Ville. I found a map, unfortunately not published any more by the TCL, the local public transit, that I find very informative. It shows you the main points of interests and the main metro lines. If you visit ...

You are two guests; select "2" in the drop down. Usually his number will indicate how many beds in a dorm or other shared facility are reserved for you -- the remaining beds will be allocated to other guests. In the case of tents or private rooms, it also helps the hostel know how many you need. If you select 3 people for a 2-person tent, the hostel will ...

I think it is unlikely (if not impossible) that you will be able to use the lost card to pay for your room. Most U.S. hotel/motel stays are post-paid. As such, you will customarily be asked for a payment method up to three times— at booking, at check-in, and at check-out— but you would only be charged at check-out or for a no-show. Usually, they ask me to ...
