Below is a list of our preferred hostel, the ones your Driver Guide will book in for you.  


If you are wanting to spend longer than the minimum guaranteed nights there are two options:

- Wait until you get here and put the number of nights you would like to spend on the sheet.The accommodation provider will then let you know if they have room for you or not. In Peak Season (December - March) it would be a better idea to book your accommodation in advance, as rooms go fast.

- Or option two is to work out your travel plans and book your extra nights accommodation in advance.


Remember if you are not staying at our preferred hostel, you will need to contact the reservations team and let them know where you are staying. We may be able to pick you up closer to the accommodation you are staying at. Check out this link for a list of pick-ups: Pick-up points
