If you are booking a dorm bed, dorm size cannot be guaranteed and may vary depending on the bookings received.
Same thing applies to allocation of Ensuite rooms subject to availability. You may be placed into the twin room if all double beds are previously booked and the twin room is the last room available and or you will have to share a bed if the twin room is already occupied.
We are a hostel and our budget accommodation depends on the fullest occupancy when possible. If you wish to book a private room and pay for any unoccupied beds you may do so, otherwise all beds will be open to let to other guests.
Families with children under 16 must book a room for their sole use; individuals under the age of 16 must share a room with a parent or supervising adult.
