We ask that you read the following terms and conditions prior to booking a stay at Ocean Backpackers.
You may cancel or alter your booking (subject to availability) up to seven days prior to your arrival date. If we do not receive notification that you would like to cancel within this time, we reserve the right to charge in full for your booking. This includes cancellation because of accidents or illness.
We strongly recommend that guests ensure that they have adequate travel insurance, in order to cover this eventually.
To make a booking you must supply a valid address, telephone number and an e-mail address, so that we can provide you with an emailed receipt. This will enable us to contact you in an emergency.
Our maximum group size is 44 (38 if double beds are used as singles). A 25% non-refundable deposit is payable at the time of booking, which must be made by debit/credit card or BACs. Bookings are not secured until the deposit has been received. Invoices can be requested at the time of booking. Full payment is payable eight weeks prior to your stay, which is also non-refundable. We will consider requests to change dates within the same calendar year, subject to availability. However, this may affect the cost of your stay, depending on the time of year.
With exclusive bookings (i.e.bookings of the entire hostel) all bed spaces booked must be paid for, despite the number of people actually staying. We also require a security bond to be paid alongside the balance. This is to compensate for ani-social behaviour, extra cleaning, or damages, and will be returned if not needed.
