Check out from the room is 10.00am but we allow guests to stay around the hostel after this time. There is no curfew at the hostel and our front door is locked around 21.00pm but access is available 24 hours a day via a door code system.
Please be aware that we do have a resident cat at the hostel who is called "Ginger George" (a picture of George can be found in our photos). We seem to find most guests appreciate the cat, especially those who are away from home and looking for creature comfort. The cat is very independent and very happy to stay away from guests who may be allergic or not keen on him. George is not allowed in the guest bedrooms or corridors. We are also dog friendly in the hostel and if you do wish to bring your four legged friend please just let us know so we can be sure to provide you a pet friendly room.
Smoking is not permitted anywhere in the hostel building. If you do decide to smoke in the building there is an automatic £50.00 penalty charge for this!
