Terms and Conditions (Nippy Bits)

Hostel Conduct

Over 18’s only. Sorry no children allowed

At Skyewalker hostel we try and keep things fun and friendly however, we are not a “party shack” and we ask all guests to be quiet in the bedroom and hall areas after 23:00hrs. We also expect all guests to be considerate and respectful to one another and to hostel staff and to comply with the hostel rules. Guests are expected to clean and return any kitchen items they use and offensive, drunken or loutish behaviour will not be tolerated and any guest acting in this manner will have their reservation cancelled and be asked to leave.


Hostel Check-In Times

Check-in: at Skyewalker Hostel is strictly between 15:00 and 21:00. Guests failing to check in by this time will automatically have their booking cancelled and will not be allowed access to the Hostel. Please remember that we are a family run business and do not have a 24 hour reception (although staff are available 24 hrs. for any emergency). In the event of a reservation being cancelled due to a guest’s failure to check-in by 21:00, the fee for the first night’s accommodation will be charged.


Check-out: at 11:00. The hostel is closed to all guests between 11:00 and 15:00 for cleaning. Please help us to maintain our high standard of cleanliness by vacating the hostel between these times. Thanks!


Cancellation Policy for Online Bookings

Skyewalker hostel has a 1 day cancellation policy. Cancellations must be made by 11am the day before the scheduled arrival date. Late cancellations and no-shows shall be charged. Sorry, no exceptions.


Group Booking Info

We do not accept group bookings of over 8 persons under the age of 35 without the prior agreement of the hostel owners. A ‘group’ booking is, by our definition, any party of more than 8 persons who have made either a single reservation with us or who have booked as individuals with the intention of meeting up as a ‘group’ at the hostel.

If you wish to make a group reservation with us, please contact the hostel directly and a member of staff will assist you.
