There are lots of misconceptions about staying in a hostel so let’s set the record straight. Here are some answers to frequently asked questions.
Will I have to share a room with people I don’t know?
Nope. Not unless you choose to book a bed in a shared dormitory room. Lots of our guests prefer the privacy of a private room. Choose a single, twin, double, family or larger room just for you and your group. Many of our hostels also have the option of a private bathroom.
Will I be sleeping in a squeaky bunkbed?
Lots of our hostels have bunk beds but, don’t worry, they will be comfortable, adult sized, solid beds. It's not all bunk beds though, some rooms have single beds and double beds.
Are they only for young travellers?
No. Our hostels are for all ages, so as well as solo and younger travellers there will be families, couples, retirees and groups, all enjoying some time away from their normal lives.
Will it be late night party central?
There will be some guests who want to go to bed early and get up early the next morning and there will be some who want to do the opposite, staying up late and having a later start to the day. Hostelling is all about being considerate to the other guests staying in the hostel!
Large groups can hire out a whole hostel to themselves.
