Terms and Conditions

If you’re staying at Clink, or thinking of staying with us, then please take a minute to read our Terms & Conditions. These exist to make Clink a safe, happy and welcoming place to stay.

…for all guests

  1. Arrivals and Departures
    Check-in is from 2:30pm. If you arrive before then we have a handy luggage room – dump your bags and go explore! Check-out is by 10am so please make sure you (and your belongings) are out of the room by then. Luggage storage (free until 2.30pm) can be arranged with reception. If you’re late to check out then you’ll be asked to pay for another night, so make sure that alarm is set!
  2. Identification
    Please make sure to bring a valid photo identification with you, preferably a passport, government issued I.D. card or driving license. You’ll need this to check in, so don’t forget it!
  3. Stag and Hen dos
    We do not accept bookings for Stag / Hen dos to stay at any of our hostels. Clink reserves the right to deny entry to anyone who has booked online and is part of such a group.
  4. Age Restrictions
    Bookings cannot be accepted from any person under the age of 18 unless they are accompanied by an adult (18 or over). Guests who wish to bring their children under 16 years of age must book a whole dorm or private room. For guests aged 16 or 17 years of age, they can book into one of dorm rooms, but must be accompanied by an adult (aged 18 or over). Unlike some hostels we do not have an upper age limit but the majority of our guests are backpackers in the 18 to 30 age range.
  5. Room allocation
    – If you’re travelling with friends or family, we’ll do our utmost to book you in a room together – but this can’t always be guaranteed. If you want to make sure that you aren’t separated from your group, we’d suggest booking a private room or taking over a whole dorm.
    – Please note that all our dorms are mixed unless a girls only dorm is booked
  6. Payment
    – Please be aware that we only accept cash, Mastercard and Visa card payments. We do not accept American Express, Diners Club cards or any other card.
    – The total price of your reservation may be charged in full on your credit card by Bed Reservations Ltd any time after booking.
    – If the name on the card used to book is different to the name on the booking, you will be asked to send us a copy of the card and a photocopy of the cardholder’s ID/Passport/Driving License. Should we not receive these details by check-in time, you will be asked to make a payment for the same reservation with your personal card/cash on arrival and the original card used will be refunded.
    – Any payments made in Bitcoins or other Cryptocurrencies will be refunded where applicable in GBP only and at the exchange rate set at the time of booking.

    – Advance Purchase rates: If cancelled, modified, or in case of a no-show, the total price of the reservation will be charged.
    – If you arrive a day late without informing the hostel, we will try and find you a bed, but this may not be in the same room type booked and may incur extra charges.

  9. Room Key Cards
    You’ll be given a key-card when you check-in which gives you access to both the hostel and your room. If you lose your key card, it’s £2 (UK) and 2€ (Amsterdam) for a replacement – so please keep it safe!
