Alcohol policy

We do not have a problem with patrons sharing a bottle of wine or a beer with their meals. However, we do not want people arriving with copious amounts of alcohol(i.e.slabs of beer or bottles of spirits). If you create a problem due to alcohol consumption in the hostel or the campsite, you will be asked to leave. Our hostel is for all ages and nationalities, families, singles, couples and groups.

It is not a party hostel, and we do not want it to be a venue for 'slab-drinking' individuals or groups.
