Offers a decent sleep without back pain no matter if it's night or day.
Beds are required for survivors to recover from the "tired" status. Survivors who slept not in bed during night planning or during day (if they are sick or wounded and there is no free beds, they will sleep on floor) will have the "slept poorly" status the following day. If a survivor is sick or wounded (from slightly to fatally), lying in a bed will assist them in recovering. A sick or wounded survivor will automatically attempt to use the nearest bed if idle.
Building enough beds for every survivor minus the scavenger will earn the Steam achievement Diary: Hostel's Open!.
