Throughout the pandemic we have been guided by the advice from YHA, UK Hospitality and GOV.UK websites. As government guidance changes so will the measures we have in place.
All of our communal spaces are currently open including the self catering kitchen, the dining room, lounge, drying room, and our nice garden. All of our rooms are available to book.
We have shared showers and toilet facilities, with enhanced cleaning measures in place and a spray bottle in each shower to make sure that each shower is as safe as the last.
Restrictions around groups have now been lifted. Groups of any size are permitted and welcome to come and stay!
If you have any questions about how things will be during your stay here please do drop us an email or give us a call, we will do our best to help.
If we (Saul and Floss) become symptomatic or are contacted by Test and Trace, we will need to close immediately for a period of up to 14 days.
We will contact all of our guests as soon as possible to either move their booking or offer a full refund.
During your stay
Removal of restrictions means we can go back to having shared shower and toilet facilities, with enhanced cleaning measures in place.
We have measures in place to help our guests stay safe. We will practice social distancing, hand sanitiser stations are placed throughout the building, anti bacterial hand wash at every sink, and enhanced cleaning processes and measures that limit the number of shared surfaces between guests. We spray the soft furniture with Oxyvir sanitising spray (in the morning when most people are out).
We think that face coverings will be a common sight around the hostel for a while, it is not for us to make people wear masks but it still seems like a good idea to look after our more sensitive and vulnerable guests and to use hand sanitiser when moving around the building.
We will reopen our self-catering kitchen which we see as one of the real cornerstones of the hosteling experience, and the welcome return of free tea and coffee!
We still offer our full menu for breakfast, packed lunches and dinner.
Whilst there is still a risk of Covid in society, we plan to keep a number of measures in place for your safe stay in the Hostel:
- Enhanced cleaning measures in rooms, toilets and showers
- We have wall mounted hand sanitiser units and appropriate signage to remind guest to use it.
- Anti bacterial liquid soap at all hand-washing sinks.
- We will continue to wear masks in communal areas, there may be guests who are more sensitive and we ant everyone to be as comfortable here as possible.
As the guidance changes so will the measures that we have in place. If at any time you are concerned, please contact us and we will do our best to help.
