  • Hi I want to book for two people, would I have to book two single bunk beds? Or when it says "1 bunk bed" does it mean both the top and bottom?

    You have to book a bed for every single person, please, so it would be 2 beds for two people.

  • Is it quiet at night?

    Dear guest we are a hostel and therefore have many travellers from all over the world who stay at Backpackers Villa. We are not a party hostel and support quiet hours after 11pm. We cannot guarantee, though, that it is always as quiet as one wishes, Also when sharing a dormitory room, it's always important to note that different mentalities and habits ask for a certain level of tollerance among each other.
