  • Book Now
  • Book Direct With Us Today

    Always book your bed DIRECTLY with the hostel to ensure you get the best up-to-date local information PLUS enjoy no deposit, commision-free bookings. Pay on arrival.

    Hostel and online travel agents booking websites collect YOUR money TWICE for every reservation you make. The 10% “deposit” or more that you pay is actually a commission that the hostel will never receive. The booking fee is an additional payment for something you could do yourself.

    Imagine how much MORE rewarding your trip could be IF you could keep all of your booking fees? Imagine if every hostel had an extra 10% to invest in YOUR stay without costing you more?

    Support the amazing people who make your trip unforgettable, NOT the corporations who drain your travel fund.

    No charge if cancelled outside 24hrs of arrival date. If cancelled within 24hrs of arrival date, the first night will be charged in full.
