  • my 17 year old will be travelling with his 3 siblings who are all over the age of 18. Does he still need to be in a private room or can they book a room together.

    Hi there, he is able to stay as long as he is in a room either by himself or with his siblings. He cannot stay in a shared room with strangers. He will also need a letter from his parent/guardian detailing permission to stay unaccompanied.

    Hi there, the quickest way to the hostel from the airport is the train to Wynyard station. We are then a 10 minute flat walk. To White Bay a taxi is the best option as there is no convenient public transport kind regards Danny
