Hostel Pricing & Reservations
Reservations which take such larger amounts of our small and limited inventory out of availability both require the advance payment and are consequently not governed by the regular cancellation policy. There is special cancellation for these types of reservations. Cancellation is conditional: upon our having been able to replace with other reservations in total so that there is no loss of rooms / beds, i.e., that we are full; so cancellation is determined after the reserved dates; and then the cancellation is of fifty percent of the reservation less card charges.
Debit Card Reservations are to be fully paid upon receipt of reservation and in advance.
In event of cancellation within 72 hr. of reservation date/no show: cardholder agrees that credit card will be charged for room reserved if: no-show; non-timely cancellation plus merchant charges incurred for charging these items on card and/or merchant charges incurred for returning any charges or portion will be paid for by cardholder.
WEEKEND & HOLIDAY -- SPECIAL NOTICE RE PRIVATE STAY. All stays must be at least 2 days in private and/or a $25 add-on will be added to any one night only stay (1/2 persons; pro-rata for added persons). It is also subject to availability after multiple days? reservations. Weekends are Friday - Sunday.
At check-in: you may not change reservation by reducing the time reserved. You agree to be responsible for the time reserved. Otherwise it may be treated as you making an untimely cancellation.

Reservation company 12% commission will be deducted from VBH room/bed rates; but each day's bed price / balance amount is rounded up to the next dollar. Items listed above added. Check-in charges will therefore be different than reservation company print-out.
