Policies and booking information

As we are a small independent hostel, we always welcome direct bookings wherever possible. Please visit our AVAILABILITY tab to make a reservation.

Bookings from our website.

Payments by bacs, and the following cards:
Visa, Mastercard.
We reserve the right to temporarily hold an amount prior to arrival.

A deposit equal to the first nights stay is required.
The deposit will be refunded according to the cancellation conditions.
Full booking balance must be paid 2 days before arrival.

If the booking is cancelled less than 2 days before arrival then a charge equal to the first night of the stay will be made. For group bookings larger than 10, cancellation refund policy does not apply.

In the event of a no show or booking reduction (after arrival date) the full cost of the booking is charged.

You are responsible for the full amount due for your reservation even If a member of your group ‘drops out’ last minute. If you decide to check out earlier we cannot give a refund as you have reserved your room for the full duration. If you arrive the next day you will also need to pay for the whole of your original booking.


If you made your booking using hostel world, please remember that this is a separate company and they have their own cancellation policy of 14 days before arrival, so after 14 days we cannot alter any drop outs or reducing the number of nights. Please contact hostel world directly to alter anything.

If you arrive early and your room is ready, you are more than welcome to check in early. If your room is not ready, you are more than welcome to use our facilities while you wait until the specified check in time.
