is the cleaning fee refundable? seems like a lot for a hostel.Unfortunately, Covid-19 has initiated the use of outside contractors for cleaning. We are a small non-profit business and care greatly about the safety of all of our guests. As an essential need for our business, the cost is higher than normal.
Is there parking onsite?There is free parking on the street from September until May. From May until September, we have parking passes available for $3.00 per day at the metered spots approx. a 5 minute walk from the hostel.
Hello is this unit adjacent to the double room with Shared bathroom? We are a family of 7 and I wouldn't eant my kids in separate bungalow aloneOur property is pretty unique. You would need to contact us directly to book a full cottage, booking 2 private rooms does not guarantee that you will be in the same cottage. We have full cottages that sleep 5-12 guests. Cheers, Sara
For the shared bathroom is that shared with other guest ?Yes, the bathroom is shared with other guests.
we're a group of 11 and we were wondering if there's anyway we can have one of the cottages all to ourselves; so we can be arranged comfortable without having to be divided or in anyone else's way.Please reach out to us directly about group bookings so we can learn more about your group and see if they would be a good fit for the hostel. Cheers
Thanks! You'll receive an email as soon as the property answers your question.
