@andrewmh20: +1. Still, I'm curious. What law says they cannot post a photocopy of the revoked certificate?

comment Imagine a non-Jewish hostel has a male and a female dorm. Does yichud allow me to sleep in the male dorm?
@Menachem: I'm in a dorm room that contains only men. There's a public domain just outside the room. This seems analogous to being in a house full of men which opens onto a public domain. So you haven't convinced me that there's any problem with staying in a male-only dorm room in a youth hostel.

This question and answer were originally just a comment on another question. After I originally posted the comment, Menachem replied: "That's the hallways, but what about the rooms where the beds are located?"

@DoubleAA: Thank you for reopening. As for your suggestion: Thank you. Done. I have edited the post to cite two examples: R' Yirmiyohu Kaganoff and R' Mordechai Frankel.
