Please note we do not have single/twin or double dorms.
Our smallest dorm has 6 beds (bunks
Our booking system for next season opens from 20th December.
Frequently during past seasons some groups have booked up multiple accommodation along a route and then either cancelled on the day, or not even contacted providers, this has been a problem for providers and potential guests.
So please be aware that if you are booking in advanced for private dorm/ group bookings for 4 or more guests, you will be required to make full payment on booking. This is non-refundable*
* Full refunds are only available if there is a lockdown situation.
In some instances if a group member drops out, and we have notice, we may arrange a refund if we can resell the bed. (shared dorms)
We would advise private dorm/ group bookings of 4 or more to purchase travel insurance in the event you have to cancel your holiday.
For smaller groups/ solo travellers, payment is due on arrival in cash or by debit card
