House Rules


  1. Arrivals and Departures
    Check-in is after 2 Pm until 10 PM. Later check-ins can be accommodated with notification of the staff. If you arrive before then we have a handy luggage room – dump your bags and go explore! Check-out is by 12 pm so please make sure you (and your belongings) are out of the room by then. If you’re late to check out then you’ll be asked to pay for another night, so make sure that alarm is set!
  2. Identification
    Please make sure to bring a valid photo identification with you, preferably a passport, government issued I.D. card or driving license. You’ll need this to check in, so don’t forget it!
  3. Age Restrictions
    Bookings cannot be accepted from any person under the age of 18 unless they are accompanied by an adult (18 or over). Guests who wish to bring their children under 16 years of age must book a whole dorm or private room with enough room for them. For guests aged 16 or 17 years of age, they can book into one of dorm rooms, but must be accompanied by an adult (aged 18 or over). Unlike some hostels we do not have an upper age limit but the majority of our guests are backpackers in the 25 to 35 age range.
  4. Room allocation
    – If you’re travelling with friends or family, we’ll do our utmost to book you in a room together  but this can’t always be guaranteed. If you want to make sure that you aren’t separated from your group, we’d suggest booking a private room or taking over a whole dorm.
