Booking suggestion: If our booking link, which takes you to our hostel, says there are no available beds on any particular day, we suggest you send us an email or call to inquire about availability as there may still be beds available. A cancellation might not have been posted yet. Also note that if you are booking less than 24 hours in advance, the booking system sometimes is set up so it won't let you book online for the next or same day, even if there are beds available.

Visa, Mastercard, Discover or American Express are required to make a reservation.

Non-refundable deposits

  • A non-refundable 50% deposit may be required for bookings made several months in advance.
  • Dorm beds: A 50% non-refundable deposit may be requested at time of booking if two or more beds are booked for one or more nights during peak season.
  • Private rooms: Non-refundable payment in full may be requested at time of booking of a private room for one or more nights during peak season.

Maximum of five nights booking. Additional nights may be available at discretion of the management. Length of booking may vary considerably with the season.

Reservations will be held until 6pm unless prior arrangements have been made. After 6pm unclaimed beds may be resold.

Payment on arrival: Payment in full for all nights booked is required on arrival. Cash is preferred. No credit/debit card payments accepted for less than two days stay.

Cancellation Policies:

  • We have a 48-hour cancellation policy in general and as much as two weeks during summer and holiday weekends. If you don't cancel within the cancellation time which applies to your booking date and don't show up, your charge card will be charged for the first night stay.
  • When booking this hostel online, the booking agency charges a 12% deposit for each night booked. Whether partial or full cancellation is made, none of this deposit is refundable by this hostel. For example, if part of a booking is cancelled, this hostel will not credit the deposit for the cancelled nights to the remaining booking. Any deposit refund requests need to be directed to the booking agency Hostelworld.

         ---  No arrivals after midnight without prior arrangement with management
         --- $30 late fee will be charged to guests of private rooms who arrive after 10pm
