FAQ’s Oasis Backpackers Hostels
I have to give my credit card to secure the booking- can i still pay cash on arrival or will the total be taken from my credit card?
Here at the Oasis we just use your credit card to secure your booking. We will check your credit card but take off no money to secure the booking. The decision is up to you on arrival whether you would like to pay by cash or credit card.
Can i leave my credit card data with you?
No money is taken off the card unless you don’t show up on the day of your arrival. Your data is safe with us. We will never hand out any private data such as your credit card to a third party and your details are safely stored with us.
I don’t own a credit card, how can i make a booking?
In case you don’t have a credit card you will have to contact the hostel reception staff to place the booking. In order to secure a room for you, you will have to make a bank transfer of the amount of the first night. Please allow 5 days for this transaction.
