Cancellations must be made 48 hours before 10.30 am of the arrival date – otherwise they’ll be treated as no shows. No shows shall be charged the equivalent of the first two nights’ accommodation.

– Guests cancelling outside of 48 hours prior to arrival will receive a refund of the full price minus the deposit.

– We have a 28 days cancellation policy for any bookings in August. Please note that any bookings for AUGUST will be charged in FULL if not cancelled within 28 days prior to check-in date (before 10.30 am)

Please note that there won’t be ANY REFUNDS for the whole of AUGUST when cancelled less than 28 days before check-in.

In AUGUST any deposit paid is non-refundable.


Please note we cannot accept bookings from under 18's, even when they are accompanied by an adult.

If you want to make a booking for more than 6 people or want to stay for longer than 14 days we ask you to please contact us directly beforehand or book though the groups department.

You will need photographic ID to sign in.

While we try our best to allocate groups into the same room and ensure that guests have the same bed for their entire stay, this is not always possible and we may require guests to move rooms if their booking is for 2 or more nights. Also, we may need to split groups between multiple rooms if the hostel is especially busy.
