Area of application

The Hostel’s Terms and Conditions of Business apply to all reservation inquiries and reservations at our hostel or by our partners.


Lodging agreement and payment

The lodging agreement is concluded directly and exclusively between the person booking (guest) and the hostel he/she wishes to stay at.

If a lodging agreement in writing is requested, this is to be returned, duly signed, to the hostel within 10 days after receipt. Otherwise the reservation is invalid.

The guest has to pay the price for an overnight stay confirmed by our hostel, including additional services and visitor’s taxes, at the hostel in cash or credit card.

The hostel is entitled to charge a supplement for empty beds in a booked room.


Payment in advance

In order to guarantee a booking, the hostel is entitled to request a payment in advance. If a payment in advance is re-quested, the same has to be made by the due date stated.

We require full payment before arrival.

In the case of bookings using the internet reservation system or at an agency or contractual partner, the booking has to be paid immediately at the time of booking.
