Terms & Conditions of stay

References to ‘Safestay’, ‘hostel’ or ‘hotel’ refer and include to the corporate entity of a specific destination as listed in section 10 of these Terms & Conditions.

By engaging in a confirmed booking for services provided by Safestay, the booker, the individual who is staying or any other person or organisation using these services, agree with the Terms & Conditions as below as part of the contract between yourself and Safestay.

For Group Bookings T&Cs please click here 

 

1. GENERAL

  • a) We require that you present a valid photo identification upon check in, this can be a passport, national identity card or photo driving license. Student cards are not accepted as valid ID.
  • b) Check-out. Departing guests must remove all their belongings from their room and other areas of the property and check out by 11am local time (check out for London properties is 10am local time). After this time guests may make use of the luggage storage facilities but all possessions must be removed from the room/dorm and the room key card handed back to reception. Late check-outs will incur a charge of the equivalent amount of the previous night paid for accommodation by the guest.
  • c) Upon check-in each guest will receive a room key card for access to their room. These key cards are activated for the period of stay only and must be handed back to reception on check out. Failure to return the key card will result in a charge of £5.00 per card (or the equivalent in the local currency of the hostel or hotel). If the hotel operates a key & lock system, a charge of £50.00 (or the equivalent in the local currency of the hostel or hotel) will apply if a ‘normal key’ has been lost.
  • d) Safestay Hostels operate a 14-night maximum stay policy. Bookings will not be accepted for more than 14 continuous nights at a time. It is irrelevant if the 14-night stay is accumulated by different bookings where a guest is checking-out and checking-in on the same day.  Stays longer than 14 days will be at the discretion of Management and must be agreed before making a reservation.
    • Following a check-out, a return to the same property is not permitted for a minimum of the same period as the immediate previous stay by the same guest. The Management has the right to refuse a check in should a guest make a reservation contrary to this rule. This does not exclusively refer to a 14-night stay, but any stay at a Safestay property.
  • e) Reservations booked in advance do not constitute a legally binding contract until the hostel confirms the reservation with the customer and provides the customer with a booking reference.
  • f) Subletting or selling a booking to another guest is not permitted unless agreed by the management prior making a reservation and arrival.

2. AGE RESTRICTION & ROOM ALLOCATION

  • a) Age restriction. Customers under the age of 18 are only permitted to stay in private rooms or shared rooms that are booked for the sole use of one family or a group of persons booked together and must be accompanied by a parent, guardian, teacher or tour-group leader over the age of 18. Any person between the age below 18 years must be accompanied by a parent, guardian, teacher or tour-group leader (over 18) staying in the same room or dormitory.
  • b) Although we will allocate a bed or room according to the booked category, your reservation does not entitle you to a specific bed, room or location of the bed/room. At Safestay we take great care to allocate beds in a way we think will be best for each booking. There may be occasions when it is not possible to allocate all guests from a booking in the same room. Splitting a booking into different rooms/dorms will not create a reason for a refund or reduction of the price booked. Please contact the relevant hostel reception by email (in writing) with the booking reference and we will be able to inform you if this is the case.
  • c) Request for specific rooms, dorms, beds, bottom or upper bunk or any other specifics are taken into account. Whilst we try our best, the hostel cannot guarantee any such room or bed allocation. Allocation of beds within the booked category of rooms is at the hostel’s discretion. Not fulfilling such a request does not create a basis for a price reduction or refund.

 

3. BOOKING METHOD & PAYMENT POLICY

  • a) Safestay accepts online bookings only. Bookings can be made on www.safestay.com or at authorised associated online travel agents. Online bookings are charged in accordance with payment method chosen.
  • b) Non-refundable bookings will be charged in full at booking stage or within 48hrs thereafter, but always prior to arrival. By booking a non-refundable rate, you agree to waive the right for a refund or alteration of your booking for any reason. For the avoidance of doubt; no refund will be given and no alteration of your booking will be granted for cancellations for whatever reason. This includes but is not restricted to: no-show due to travel delays, no-show or cancellations due to medical reasons or emergencies or any other reasons which may prevent you from staying or you may regard as preventing you from using the booked accommodation and/or other services. We strongly suggest taking out a travel insurance for such circumstances.
  • c) Whilst we will communicate any issues when charging a card, we reserve the right to cancel the reservation without notice if a credit card is declined or the balance due cannot be charged in full prior arrival at a time chosen by the hostel.
  • d) We will require for all bookings valid and accepted credit card details when making your reservation in order to guarantee your booking. Your rights to cancel or change your booking are specified by the rate details shown during the booking process.
  • e) The card provided will be checked prior arrival. Whilst we will communicate any issues when checking a card, we reserve the right to cancel the reservation without notice if a credit card is declined.
    • a) For reservations other than non-refundable booking (see 3b), the balance owed will be due in full one day prior arrival, payable by the debit, credit card provided at reservation. At the hostel’s discretion, we reserve the right to charge the card between 10am the day prior arrival and your arrival.
  • f) If your booking is being paid for with a third party credit card we will require written authorisation to be provided by the card-holder.
    • We offer no credit facilities. All bookings must be paid for in full prior check-in.
    • To check the validity of your credit card and guarantee your booking, we reserve the right to temporarily hold an amount prior to arrival.
  • g) Please note that we do not accept cash, cheque, Laser Card, solo, diners cared, electron or American Express.
  • h) If any payment under these terms and conditions is not met, then without prejudice to our other rights and remedies we may cancel your booking; and/or we may suspend the supply and/or deliveries of any other services provided to you by us. We will however, make every reasonable effort to inform you in writing prior to any such action.

Failure to cancel by this time will result in a cancellation charge equal to the total of your booked stay (all nights),.
  • b) Unless you booked a non-refundable rate (see T&Cs above), any amendments to your bookings must be made by 3pm the day prior to arrival (local time of booked hostel/hotel). We will try and accommodate your amendments subject to availability.
