BOOKINGS OF 10 OR MORE PEOPLE are considered Group Bookings and must be booked with Group Bookings at hostelbookers.com/groupbkg to verify availability for the dates, as well as special Group Rates that may be more or less than those stated for individuals. As Group Bookings require more effort regarding placement, security, processing, etc., we must reserve the right to deny any bookings made for more than 10 people.
