What does the room type of a listing mean?

One can find a wide variety of listings types on eLands but when it comes to listings for let (rent) all listings are categorized into the following three types:

Shared rooms are for you if you don't mind sharing a space with others for a comfy, communal experience. With a shared room, you're sharing the entire space with another person or persons. These rooms work best for the flexible traveler looking for a budget-friendly stay.

Private rooms are for you if you prefer privacy yet still value a local connection, often around a third of the cost of a hotel room. With a private room, you're sharing some spaces with others, but you have your own private space as well. Wake up to greet your new friends in the kitchen and have the freedom to bid them adieu at bedtime.

Entire homes/apartments are for you if you are seeking a home away from home with complete privacy and the freedom to kick your feet up. With an entire home/apartment, you've got the whole space to yourself. Be your own host, make your own breakfast, and remember to treat your listing with the respect and courtesy you would at your own home.

You can see a listing's room type in the listing's Description tab.
