We accept the following credit cards at check-in: 


Q.     Are there any reservation cancellation fees ?

Unless you have already paid in advance for your rooms, there is no way we can physically collect a cancellation fee ( does not provide us with your credit card details).

Cancellations made a day before check-in may qualify for a refund of any monies prepaid. This is subject to managment approval and not guaranteed.

If more than one room was reserved or the reservation date is during a holiday or festival timeframe, there is a higher chance that we will NOT refund you as we have suffered a greater risk by blocking rooms that most likely will not be reserved last-minute. 

If you are a Cape Verdean resident who has cancelled with us in the past, we reserve the right to require a full-prepayment in order to guarantee your next reservation. If you cancel or fail to show once more, we will not refund any prepaid monies and may deny future reservation requests made by you. 

Q.    Do you require a security or damage deposit? 

We normally do not require any damage deposits upfront. However, if we feel there is a higher risk of damage (for example, a large group of people, many small children, or stays during a festival timeframe) we may request a deposit. It will be returned as long as all of the hostel spaces are left in the same condition they were rented to you.

We may take a security deposit for any equipment we rent to you. Once the equipment is returned in the same condition it was rented, we will refund you this security deposit. If the item is damaged, lost, or stolen, you will be held responsible for any associated costs. 

Q.     May I invite other people to my room/dormitory ?

Only those who are listed on the reservation AND have appeared during the check-in period are allowed to stay in the hostel. If any other people are invited without the staff's consent, the hostel staff will remove everyone in violation, including those who have paid for the reservation. Any monies pre-paid will not be refunded. We take the safety and security of our guests very seriously. This policy is strictly monitored and enforced. There are absolutely no exceptions to this policy. Authorities may also be called if deemed necessary
