How we're keeping you safe

Reduced Capacity

Reduced Capacity

In addition to placing clear instructions in shared spaces around physical distancing requirements, we've also reduced the capacity in our shared spaces. You'll find a maximum occupancy sign outside each space—from kitchens to elevators. 

Enhanced Cleaning

Enhanced Cleaning

We’ve beefed up our already strict cleaning practices and will ensure all high-touch areas like doorknobs and shared surfaces are disinfected frequently and in accordance with public health guidelines.

Distancing Measures

Many hostels have switched to offering private dorms, while others have reduced dorm capacity (unless you're travelling together as a group). Unfortunately, we've cancelled hostel activities for the time being, to avoid bringing groups of people together.

Bunk-Bed-Purple.svg

Privacy Options

We've increased the availability of private dorms wherever possible. That means at some hostels you can choose to book out an entire dorm room for yourself or your party. This is in addition to our existing private rooms, many with their own ensuite washroom.

Enhanced Cleaning

Guest Protection

Hand sanitizing stations have been placed throughout our hostels. We also encourage you to wear a cloth face covering if you’re unable to keep your distance, and most hostels will have disposable masks available for a small price.

Enhanced Cleaning

Staff Training

Our staff have received additional training on hygiene protocols and procedures as we continue to monitor and implement industry and public health best practices.
