Central Backpackers Hostel requires all guests to provide a valid credit or debit card on check- in. The hostel will pre-authorise your card for your full room rate (unless room rate paid in advance) Payment can still be made in CASH on check-in. A ‘pre-authorisation’ is not a charge. The hotel is NOT charging your credit card. A pre-authorisation is a security guarantee for payment only. The way it works is that a pre-authorisation request is made by the hotel’s card terminal to the card holders’ bank, your bank/credit card company authorises the funds and sends an authorisation code to the hotel. This confirms the availability of the requested funds in the card holder’s account to cover charges in the hotel (if any). Long-term stay: Want to become part of the Central Backpackers family? We offer a weekly long-term rate dependent upon availability at the time of arrival. Simply book a few nights with us online and we can talk about it when you arrive! Cancellation policy: We require 48 hours notice for any cancellations otherwise you will be charged for the first two nights or in the result of non-arrival, the total cost of booking will be levied to your credit card. If your booking is for 5 or more NIGHTS 72 hours notice is required otherwise the entire amount of your booking is charged.
