We welcome families of all shapes and sizes however there are a couple of things to note:

(1) unfortunately we cannot accept children under 3 years old

(2) we welcome all kids 3 years+ however if you are travelling with children aged 11 years old or under we do require you to be in a room on your own as we do not allow children under this age to be in public dormitories.

When booking please ensure you book out a private room, family room or large private room if there children under 12 years old in your party. If you are unsure of anything just give us a call or drop us a line, we’ll get back to you ASAP.
