Terms & Conditions

Reception & Check In Hours:

Reception is open from 9am to 8pm and check-ins are possible at any time during those hours. Guests may check-in any time during reception hours. However, due to our daily cleaning schedule you can only move into your room after 3pm. We do have a luggage storage room where you can ‘park’ your baggage in the meantime.

Arriving outside Reception Hours:

We are pleased we can arrange a late check in for guests arriving in private room only at night time. With your booking you agree for us to take full payment for your booking (plus $3 credit card processing fee) at the time of booking so we can send you a confirmation of your booking with our Late Arrival Instructions. However, in consideration to other guests in dorm rooms, we do not allow check in after reception hours and recommend you book a private room for the first night, then change to a dorm room. We understand that you may change your plans ‘last minute’ to fully enjoy your holiday. If you have any changes to your booking, or will be arriving later than originally planned, please contact us prior to your arrival so that we can email you our late arrival instructions.

Cancellations & ‘No Shows’:

All cancellations and changes to a booking must be received by us by email before 7pm, at least 48 hours (2 full days’ notice – local NZ time) prior to your day of arrival. We will confirm the receipt of your cancellation or change of booking by return email (during our reception hours). No Shows, cancellations or changes to the booking received with less than 2 full days’ notice will be charged to your credit card with the full amount for the booking.

Please follow the prices link or click on the ‘Book Now’ button to check for up to date availabilities and prices. Please note, that all deals are non-transferable and non-refundable.
