Best Location Policies & Conditions:


COVID-19 REGULATIONS:
All guests must show a negative Covid Test or EU-Green Pass prior to check-in. This is government regulation and in total responsibility of the guest, there are no refunds if compliance can not be met. 
Booking shared mixed dorm rooms lies in full responsibility of every individual guest, the room shall not be expected to have less occupancy than exactly the dorm size & category booked. While we do advise considering private room options, the nature of a hostel is still a social endeavor and comes with shared facilities. 

PAYMENT:
You must have sufficient funds on your credit card to cover the remaining balance (not just the deposit) of your booking as we reserve the right to charge the full balance prior to your arrival. No payment, no reservation, no exception. It is your obligation to guarantee a payment, only then it is our obligation to guarantee your booking.

Reservations with invalid declined or expired credit cards will be canceled, especially virtual third party credit cards by MB-way or similar, if payment is declined the booking will be canceled without further notice - you will see the changed booking status when you login into your Hostelworld account! Hostelworld is not obligated to refund the down payment in that case. If the beds that you blocked can not be resold and are not occupied by you on the arrival date, the remaining charges for no-show will be collected at a later date.

 

If you book only 1 night, a surcharge of 1.90 EUR per person will be added on arrival on top of the final bill. City Tax of 3.2% may be not included in your statement.

LATE CHECK-IN ARRIVALS (online check-in) can be arranged by getting in touch with reception, guests must book at least 1 day in advance and send a PASSPORT copy by email (just take a photo with your phone and send it to hostel@bestlocation.at ) on the day of arrival, in order to obtain late check-in access code by email. The credit card on file will be charged for the full amount, if charges are declined the booking will be invalid. You will receive an email before the reception closes on the day of your arrival, with instructions on how to enter. You must be able to receive emails, have power on your cellphone to retrieve the email (Wifi in front of reception available), and understand some basic English in order to follow the email instructions on how to self-check-in.
