So let's say hypothetically you work at a hostel that rents male and female dorm rooms, and a Transgender boy walks in wanting to be put in the male dorm rooms because he feels more comfortable in there. And let's say you new that something was off but didn't want to ask a question that might make them feel uncomfortable, so you let it slide and help them up to the male dorm rooms and everything is cool, and he starts to unpack. You get half way down the stairs and it strikes you that you never entered their i.d. into the computer, so you go back up and ask for it and he quickly gives it to you and as you are running it you notice that it says female under their name.

Do you hypothetically transfer them into the women's side of the hostel?

[@1027452,adorbz] but yes as people are saying you should clarify what the hostels policies on this are and do those

There's probably rules in place but I'd let the person go where they're asking to go. If you're unsure as a worker, seek out a supervisor.

[@868864,HannahSky] i probably should have done that but either way i would have still worried. they hypothetically ended up checking out early and so didn't stay the night.
[@780464,Lostpoet] Yeah, it's not always clear on what to do. Safety is a priority.

[@417364,Ozymandias] But hypothetically i do think under law you are required to put them on the female side which is also a hell of a lot nicer btw.

And i did worry about their well being he was very small.

[@780464,Lostpoet] you can check in with them to make sure they are alright and take it from there if needs be.

It would fall on what the hostels policy is. They may have rules on such a thing
No. Probably not.
