FAQs

Can I join with a friend?

Yes! You can both book a bed in the mixed shared dorm, or book a private room for the two of you (you will get a little discount).

I am vegetarian/vegan/have allergies/etc, is that a problem?

Absolutely not a problem. A few days before the trip we ask you to choose from the menu, if there’s nothing on it that you can eat let us know so we figure it out with the restaurant. We are used to organizing safe food for vegetarian, vegan and people with allergies or food preferences.

Can I come with my own car?

Yes, you can book the option “without transportation” in the booking form.
