Conditions & Policy
Credit Cards Accepted
If you selected the non-refundable rate you will be billed the full amount of your booking within 24 hours. Please, ensure that your account is funded enough to cover this full cost before booking because if your credit card is declined your reservation may be cancelled and the 15% "deposit" you paid during booking will be forfeited to Hostelworld. Thank you for your reservation with The Wayfaring Buckeye Hostel. All check-ins are by appointment only. Please email me if you will be arriving more than one hour outside of the time you specified for check-in. Please note that if you can reach me at my cell number below you will be able to get into the common areas of the house (lockers, kitchen, etc...) earlier in the day, however your sleeping space may not be ready until after 3:00 pm (after the other guest has checked out and the space has been cleaned). If you require access to your sleeping space before 3:00 pm, please book the previous night. I wanted to ensure that you have my contact information. You are welcome to leave a message if you don't immediately get an answer by phone, but email is the best way to reach me. If you will be arriving by plane or bus we have a third party individual who does our airport/bus station transfers. The charge is $20 (plus tip) cash only. His name is James and you will have to contact him (614-653-6547 or email@example.com) to schedule a pickup. Please mention that you are staying at the Wayfaring Buckeye Hostel as he does transfers for other companies as well. After you have arrived at the Columbus airport and collected your baggage you must call him (either from your cell phone or a pay phone). He drives a maroon colored van and you can discuss the color of your clothing or other appearance details with him when you make the call so that he can easily find you in the passenger pickup area. If you are arriving by car please initially park in the driveway and ask a staff member to show you the limited parking we have available behind the house. This parking is considered first come first served and you will be towed if you park anywhere else back there but the four spaces the staff member will show you. If those spaces are full, you will have to find parking on the street, which is free. Please let me know ASAP of any changes or cancellations to your reservation. By placing this reservation you signify that you agree to these conditions. I look forward to meeting you. The Wayfaring Buckeye Hostel
