How do I cancel my booking?
If you wish to cancel your booking you must contact the property directly using the contact details on our booking site. Please remember to quote your booking reference in any correspondence with the property.
In the event of a cancellation the booking fee and deposit are non-refundable. You must give at least 24 hours cancellation notice to the property to avoid a no-show charge. The no-show charge is the total of your accommodation cost and will be charged to your credit card if you do not notify the hostel in time.

Until 14 days before your arrival we charge a 10% fee of the total sum. In case of cancelling between the last 14 days before your arrival we charge 100% of the total sum.

You should contact the property directly to request an amendment to your reservation. Please quote your booking reference number in any correspondence with the property.
