Do you have mixed dorms?

No, we do not, but if you come in as a group and request in advance that your group would like to rent the whole room together, we can make exceptions.

Can you guarantee that I get a bottom bunk?

No, we cannot guarantee you a bottom bunk. Beds are first-come first-serve. For those who check in at the same time and cannot agree on who gets the bottom bunk we can sanction an official paper, scissors, rock or thumb wrestling match officiated by our front desk staff to help determine who gets the preferred bunk.

Are there any age restrictions?

Anyone under 18 is not permitted without being accompanied by an adult guardian. Guests under 16 with a guardian is permitted only in private rooms unless an entire dorm is rented. Parents with young children must contact the hostel prior to booking.

Is there a minimum or maximum stay?

There is no minimum stay, but our maximum stay is 14 consecutive days. If you would like to stay longer than 14 days, you will need to contact us in advance. Please e-mail us at
[Other possibility: If you would like to stay longer than 14 days, please see our FAQ for Long-term Accommodation.]
