My Hostelworld room(s) are not showing in the room mapping process. Why?

 

Background:

 

Hostelworld displays rooms based on their type, such as "Shared" or "Private".  If you have setup your Myallocator room as a different type than the Hostelworld room, you will not see the corresponding Hostelworld room for mapping purposes.  

 

Example:

 

Let's say you have a room called "Single" in Myallocator that is created as a "Shared Dorm" in Myallocator as shown below:

If the Hostelworld room that you want to map is created as a "Private Room", that Hostelworld room will not appear in the drop-down list for mapping.  This is because the room type (Shared versus Private) does not match between Myallocator and Hostelworld.

 

Instead, you will only see the [Not configured] message as shown below:

Solution:

There are two options:

1. Change the room type in Myallocator to match the room type in Hostelworld

2. Change the room type in Hostelworld to match the room type in Myallocator.

Once you make the proper change, the room will appear in the drop-down list on the mapping page.
