  • Can males stay in female dormitory?

    No. Female dormitories are names as such due to them only allowing female guests to stay. The same goes for our male dorms. However, we do also offer mixed gender dorms which are available for all genders to stay in.

  • 1.Bunk bed ( in the photograph) or one double bed ( in the description)? 2. Is it better & cheaper to book online rather than at the property upon arrival ( if rooms were available in both situations). Thanks

    Our double/twin rooms are equipped with a Houston bunk - a bunk with a double on the bottom and single on the top. The price is cheapest booking direct with YHA but prices are the same online/phone and on arrival.
