COVID conditions for 2021 bookings

The following changes will be in place during these unusual times, to safeguard both our guests and our staff:

1. We will not be able to accept cash payments - only cards.

2. WE WILL NOT BE OFFERING BREAKFAST. There is a supermarket a 5-minute walk from the hostel. 

3. Dormitories may only be booked by private groups - individual beds cannot be booked at this time.

4. Almost all our bathrooms are usually shared (except for the quad), but at the moment we are restricting how many guests use each bathroom, and there can never be two groups in the bathroom area at the same time. We will continue to restrict numbers and monitor usage until we feel it is safe to return to normal shared bathrooms.

5. The guest kitchen is only open for use of the fridge and microwave, and to collect and return (and wash and dry) plates, cutlery, etc. We are not permitting food preparation or proper cooking because our kitchen is a windowless space, so we do not wish to encourage guests to spend time in there. Additionally, only one group can use it at a time. However, there are many restaurants and takeaways within walking distance of us. We also have an outside barbecue and picnic area which you are welcome to use - please bring your own charcoal. A kettle and tea/coffee facilities will be provided for every group until the kitchen kettle is back in use.

6. We will have a maximum of 25 people in the building at any one time (our usual capacity is 43).

7. Our large bar area is available for dining, relaxing and also for drinks (again, card payments only). It is big enough for all guests to sit socially distanced (assuming some are in pairs and groups).

8. AS PER SCOTTISH GUIDELINES, MASKS MUST BE WORN WHEN MOVING AROUND INSIDE THE BUILDING.

Please also note that we all have a responsibility to act in a way that safeguards those around us during these unusual times - for this reason, we would ask that anyone displaying any potential symptoms of covid must please contact us and cancel your stay. Also note that if we have concerns about any guest's health, we reserve the right to ask them to leave the property for the safety of our other guests and our staff.
