El Misti Packages
* Cancellations for New Year's Packages:
Cancellations can be made before November 30th with a 100% refund of the total amount. After that date the amount that has been already paid will not be refunded.
* Cancellations for Carnival Packages: Cancellations can be made before December, 31st with a 100% refund of the total amount. After that date the amount that has been already paid will not be refunded. Even if the booking engine allows you to book less nights at the normal rate, for the Carnival and New Year's Packages, your booking will not be valid if you do not book the whole package. Bookings for New Year or Carnival must be for the whole period of the package, any booking that breaks into the New Year's or Carnival dates will be automatically canceled and the deposit amount not refunded. You will be immediately contacted about the payment from the whole package.
For reservations guaranteed with a 50% deposit or more at time of booking, rooms are held until hostel check-out time the day following arrival. In the event more guests arrive than can be accommodated due to hostel overbooking or an unforeseen circumstance, and the hostel is unable to hold rooms consistent with booking room hold policy, the hostel will attempt to accommodate guests, at its expense, at a comparable hostel in the area for the oversold night(s), and will pay for transportation to that hostel.
In our strive to improve and upgrade our facilities to satisfy all our guest, El Misti Hostel sometimes undergoes refurbishment work in some parts of the hostel. We do our best to ensure guests will not be affected by the renovations but please be aware of the latter possibility.
