Please note that there are no electrical sockets in the dormitories. Unfortunately this is due to guests using irons and hair straighteners in the room and leaving them on the carpets. This is a serious health and safety risk and to ensure the safety of our guests and staff, sockets are supplied in the public areas and hairdryers are provided in the bathrooms.
Check-in from 1 pm until 11 pm. Check-out by 10 am. Any guests arriving after 11 pm will be required to pay a £5 late arrival fee to the member of night staff. Please note this is a one off fee of £5 and not £5 per person. Please advise us in advance of a late check in.
All reservations are payable in full on arrival.
A £10 per person deposit is asked from all guests on arrival which is returned on departure when key cards and bedding are returned.
If you are a group of 8 or more people you will be asked to pay the remaining balance as a group (not individually) and leave a £20 security bond per person on arrival. This bond will be returned on departure once the rooms have been checked by a staff member. Please note that you should allow time for your room to be checked as this can take up to 15 minutes, if you fail to leave time for your rooms to be inspected bonds will not be returned. If we require damages to be inspected by the owner, bonds will be kept and returned to you at a later date once a price has been determined for the damage. Disturbing other residents will also result in a penalty charge, the amount will be determined on a case by case basis. Upon arrival at the hotel your group will be asked to read through an introduction letter which lists damages and penalty charges as a guide only, the hotel reserves the right to change these.
If you have booked online or in person, any deposit made is non-refundable. Our cancellation policy is by 2pm, 2 days prior to your arrival date. Cancelling within this time or failure to arrive at the hotel on your day of arrival will see one night’s room rate charged to the credit card details provided to us with the booking and your booking will be cancelled for any further nights you have booked.
Due to the high demand for beds in Edinburgh over New Year, guests will be asked to settle 50% of their total amount, which is non-refundable, one month prior to arrival when booked into the hotel between:
29 December – 2 January (Inclusive)
If cancelling for these dates we require no less than 2 weeks’ notice for there to be no further charges made to your credit card. Cancelling within 2 weeks of your arrival date will see the total remaining balance of your bill charged to the credit card details provided to us with your booking.
All guests must present photo Identification on arrival.
