What is a private room?
A private room is a room that is not shared with other people from the hostel – in other words, you book and pay for all the beds in the room. If you are traveling alone, for example, but want to book a double room, you must pay for two people in order to book the whole room. (That's why the option to book for one person in a double room, for example, isn’t available in the select box.)
How do I book a private room?
To book, select the number of people you want to book for from the box next to your chosen room (remembering that you must book all the beds in a room!). Check that your arrival date and the number of nights are correct, and then click on the ‘Book Rooms’ button. This will take you to our secure payment page to complete your booking.
You can book as many dormitory and private rooms as you want:
If you are looking to book for more than 10 people, though, you may get a better deal by using our Group Enquiry form.
The prices given are per person not per room.
In some cases (public holidays, festivals, major events etc.), the prices of rooms may be higher for certain days. They will be shown on the ‘Checkout’ page before you confirm the booking.
Do private rooms have their own bathrooms?
As a general rule, bathroom facilities are shared unless it says otherwise. A room with its own exclusive bathroom (as opposed to a bathroom shared with other rooms) will have ‘ensuite’ written next to it, e.g. ‘Private Double (ensuite)’ or ‘6 Bed Dorm (ensuite)’.
Please note: ‘Private room’ is different to ‘Private bathroom’.
