There can be two ways to manage the Dormitory Rooms one free and one Paid.
The Free Way,
Go to the Catalog tab--> manage room types
Then click on Add New Product to create a room type.
Now while creating the room types in the configuration section add as many rooms as you have beds in this dormitory.
That is considered a bed as a room.
But the issue in this way is if you have multiple dorms then you will have to create multiple room types in the system .And will have to manage each dorm separately.
This will also create a problem if have listed your properties on various OTAs and want to manage them through a Channel Manager.

No, right now there is no additional theme for QloApps nor there are any tools to create a theme for QloApps.
Prestashop themes will get installed on QloApps but the result will not be satisfying for you as there is a lot of difference between an e-commerce platform and hotel commerce platform.

Right now we do not of the show the room number to the of the room booked by the customer to the customer as it is the general format of the industry. Although the admin can manage it from the back end.
But if you want then we can show the room number to the customer.

Right now, we do not have dev docs for QloApps. So we suggest to every developer to take the help of Prestashop dev docs. If you know Prestashop then you will also be able to develop on QloApps.
But the payment gateways development will be a bit different. We made some small changes while managing the pricing in QloApps. So you will have to keep a check on that.
Now regarding the Prestashop Modules,
We have made changes in Prestashop codes to make it compatible with the hotel industry.
So the PrestaShop modules might not work in the QloApps. But if need some sort of functionality then please inform us we will suggest you the best possible way.
The other content on contact us page is dynamic. It shows the details of your hotel your enter at the back end.

We manage permissions in QloApps. You can create Profiles with different types of permissions and assign these profiles to your employees.
So that admin can give a different type of permissions to different employees.
We manage permissions on the basis of menus and modules so that you allow or restrict your employees to access certain menus and modules.
And right now, we do not manage the permissions on the basis of Hotels.
When you search for a room for a date range in Book Now section of QloApps at the back end under Hotel Reservation System Tab and no room is available for any room type but some rooms of same room type or different room types are available on specific dates in that date range so that you can create a booking by combining those rooms for that date range then these rooms are partially available rooms.
Let me explain the concept with the help of an example.
