Conditions & Policy
CHECK IN: Guests must always inform us of their arrival time in order for the hostel to arrange their check-in. A VALID picture ID will be required to check-in NORMAL CHECK IN: 1:00 pm to 10:00 pm (if you arrive after 10 pm, you must request a "late check-in", read conditions please) CHECK OUT: 10.30 am Out of those hours, you may leave your luggage in our storage room, free of charge, while you go out to explore the city. LATE CHECK-IN CONDITIONS (for arrivals after 10 pm): Non-refundable rates: If you have booked a "non-refundable rate" you only need to inform us of your approximate arrival time, and we will coordinate your check-in. No problem. Deposit-Only rates: As for the rest of the reservations, if guests arrive after 10 pm, they must request a "late-check-in service". Our hostel usually doesn’t charge late-check-in fees, however, the cost of the first 2 nights will be charged in order to arrange a late-check-in (which means that we will maintain all of the beds reserved and have someone waiting until the next day at 9 am in case guests have experienced any delays). If the guests don't show up by the next morning, the reservation will be cancelled and the money won't be reimbursed. AGE LIMIT FOR SHARED DORMS: Being a 'Youth Hostel', our shared mixed rooms are meant to be 'student dorms'. For that reason, children under 7 or guests over 45 years must book private rooms or entire dorms (all beds in a shared dorm). Please, contact us immediately if this concerns you, so that we can assist you. ATTENTION: We can't accept Bachelor Parties as we are NOT A PARTY HOSTEL. BARCELONA TOURIST TAX: The local Government charges a Tourist tax to all visitors over 15 years old. This tax will be calculated upon arrival according to city regulations. CANCELLATION POLICY Non-Refundable rates: This option requires the full cost of the stay to be paid in advance in order to complete the booking process and confirm the reservation. This rate is cheaper, but it cannot be cancelled or modified (consequently, paid amounts cannot be reimbursed). Deposit-Only rates: These reservations can be cancelled (or modified) until 5 full days before the due arrival date (for example, if your reservation is due for the 10th of July, you will be able to freely cancel or modify the reservation until the 4th at 11:59 pm). No modifications or cancellations will be accepted free of charge after that time. Modifications: They will be subject to our availability and minimum stay requirements. Please note that there will be no refunds in the event of early check-outs. In any case, if you need to modify or cancel your reservation, please do NOT wait until the last minute because it will be impossible for us to help you, as the more we approach the due arrival date, the less chances there will be of re-selling your cancelled nights. We are a small hostel, and we cannot afford having empty beds. Important: If you are arriving after 10pm, make sure to request the late-check-in service because all of the reservations that haven't arrived by that time will be considered a no-show and can be cancelled by the hostel. Deposits: Hostels cannot reimburse the deposits paid online since they are kept by the booking companies chosen by the guest. If you have any inquiries about this, you should contact the booking company. Credit cards: According to the booking conditions, a valid credit card is required in order to maintain the beds reserved. In the event the provided credit card doesn't work, the reservation can be cancelled by the hostel as there is no guarantee that the reservation will be honored.
