Some final but important points to remember!

On occasion, due to the nature of hostels, it can happen that guests need to move rooms during their stay despite our best efforts to limit and avoid such cases.

All bookings must be paid for on arrival or at the time of extension.

We do not allow check out and check in of rooms on the same day, unless there is no other option available. i.e. no bed/room hopping!
We reserve the right to ask anyone to leave if we feel they are disturbing the general operation of the hostel, other guests or our staff.

We kindly ask guests for understanding.
