The Hotel Manager put the first two guys in room number 1.
The Third Guy in Room Number 2.
The Fourth Guy in Room Number 3.
The Fifth Guy in Room Number 4.
The Sixth Guy in Room Number 5
But The Room Number Sixth is still Empty.

Can anyone provide Explanation?

Whole of the internet is baffled but no one is able to provide answer to this Riddle.


It has been claimed by many people that it is a fake Riddle,which has no solution. Thanks Christina and ‘ someone’ for your comments below.
Actually, It appears he never did anything with the 7th guy. Thanks for pointing out.

      1. There is a variation of this where the manager goes back and gets the 7th guy from the first room meaning that the guy left out would either be guy 1 or guy 2

  1. most logical one is more like .. these guys never showed up to the hotel at the same time. 1/2 showed up obviously right before check out.. then 3 then 4 and so on.. room 6 was occupied by guy number 7 until checkout time and then the manager took guy 2 out of that room and put him in room 6.. everyone is happy.

  2. I say one of the seven guys is a child, he says he goes back to the first room, which to me is the lobby and gets the 7th guy, thus leaving 2 people in room 1

    1. guys guys guys i figured out how it works…

      7 guys 6 rooms.. all want a room to themselves.. so room 1-6 has a dude in it. but also there is a waiting room obviously in a hotel.. well they are all in a room alone.

  3. I think that the 7th guy is the luggage carrier person lol what are they called? So the 6 guys in a room are the guests & #7 is the bag boy . Apparently the answer is simple and obvious sooo… Voila! Youre welcome lol

  4. Um to blow a huge whole in your idea let me say this, they do all arrive at the same time. For whatever reason that was omitted from the riddle on this page.

  5. there’s a hotel with six rooms ‘ they didn’t say the words left or only had implying that this hotel could have more rooms aka the 7th person came much earlier and already took a room leaving 6 rooms available < second guess

  6. Or just the guy in room one, so the 7th guy was arriving and the 1st guy was checking out so for a short time they would technicaly be in the same room because of check in/check out times.

  7. He didn’t really say witch 2 he put in the 1st room but he did with the rest, so he maybe put number 1 and 7 in the first room leaving 6 with no room

  8. Nope seven guys rocked up 6 of them.were mates and 1 rocked up same time as they did and he was the manager so yeaaah lol

      1. Maybe the manager is just starting his shift? I’m pretty sure the manager has a life and doesn’t live in the hotel…

  9. The 7th guy could always be the manager the front desk could have been empty when the ) guys showed up so therefor the 7 guys showed up would be correct

  10. Word play “A room” “themselves” not himself. 50 guys could have been stuck in 1 room and guess what… thay have A room to THEMSELVES. K.I.S.S.

  11. I was thinking 2 guys wanted to share a room the others wanted their own rooms and the 7th was stilling waiting to be placed so the manager went back to get him.

  12. Lol I thought it was guy number 2 because number 2 doesn’t ever come up.
    Because he gave the 7th man a room but I guess number 2 was the one who got a room with number 1 so yah
