Sorry about that! Gulp! ?Our tolerance for families staying with us is courteously very low because of the nature of our awesome “hostelish” environment; and the expected quirkiness of some of our guests!

Out they go! ?We reserve the right to refuse admission (on the spot with no refund), or cancel the booking of groups (on the spot with no refund) whose members engage in any form of inappropriate behaviour (Such as in disturbing other guests or any such behaviour that is considered culturally and socially insensitive as well as unacceptable by us and by our complaining guests)!
