Smylies Hostel Managers and staff retain the right to refuse accommodation at any time. Should your plans change, please contact either the Booking engine you used to book thru or the hostel directly as soon as possible. Whilst we will do our best to ensure you are accommodated in the same room throughout your stay, due to limited availability at time of booking, it may be necessary for you to change rooms.

During special events, additional terms and conditions may apply. Our cancellation policy is also subject to change during these times. Pets: Dogs can only be accommodated into Motel 1 and Bowler Cottage, a surcharge of $20 will be charged per pet to offset extra cleaning. these rules override the limited ability we have to state our policy on booking platforms we advertise on like at all times dogs stay under control and on a lead when outside, our home pets have right of way Amendment, non-arrival, cancellation and refund charges: Amendment: To amend any booking a NZ$10.00 amendment fee applies per transaction. Regardless of when you booked, any amendments to your date of arrival cannot be made on the day you are due to arrive. This will instead be treated as a same day cancellation, meaning no refund.

Not refund you for the first night if you cancel after 6pm on the day before arrival. However, we will fully refund you for subsequent nights. Where you cancel an unpaid booking, we will charge you a $10.00 cancellation fee. If you do not advise us of your cancellation, the non-arrival clause applies.
