Errors during Full Refresh

Error: Mapped room has wrong number of beds

This error is shown if you have a private room on myallocator that doesn't match the number of beds on the channel. 


You have a double room on with an occupancy of 2, and you have this mapped to a room on Hostelworld with an occupancy of 3. This does not work and will lead to this error message. Please make sure the number of beds match.
