5. Room Allocation
At Heritage we take great care to allocate beds in a way we think will be best for each customers booking. Please note that when booking dorm beds from any web site it does not automatically mean that all the guests on that booking will be in the same room. Although we try to allocate all the guests on each booking to the same room this is not always possible and you should contact customer service with the booking reference, if you would like a guarantee.
6. Guest Behaviour
The comfort, safety and security of our guests is of paramount importance to Herigate. Any guest(s) who, in the opinion of our staff, compromise the comfort, safety or security of other guests, staff or local residents will be requested to leave the hostel premises and will not be offered a refund. Guests are expected to respect other guests, staff, local residents and property. In the case of groups, the group leaders must ensure that all members of their group behave in an acceptable manor. Failure of any individual group member to do so will result in the expulsion of the whole group.
