A valid credit card is required for all reservations to secure your reservation. Upon reservation, credit card will be charged for the amount indicated on the booking confirmation page and email. The hostel accepts Visa and MasterCard only.

Cancellations received and confirmed less than 72 hours ahead of check-in (default check-in time is 2:00pm) will incur a charge equivalent to a night’s stay. For cancellations made more than 72 hours before your booked stay, please ensure that you receive a confirmation email from us to avoid cancellation charges.

Rucksack Inn is not responsible for any cancellations or altered reservations due to guest input error or unforeseen circumstances, and guests will be billed for a night’s stay in the case of a late cancellation or a no-show.

For promotional rates, reservations will be secured once full payment is made; otherwise no bed/room(s) will be blocked and a no refund policy applies: Any cancellation, modification or in the case of no-show, the full amount of the reservation will be charged.
