A bit of vocabulary
Private rooms allow you to be the only resident of the room. They have their own toilet, and may have many other additional options such as having a night companion depending on the price you pay.
These are rooms shared with another person, separated by a curtain. The toilets are therefore also shared, and there is the possibility of having a companion for the night in certain cases.
These are rooms shared by different people who require similar care. They range from 3 to 14 people who are separated by curtains.
