Is there a place to leave your things in the rooms? Or the day that you check out?
Each guest room has a cupboard with a lock to leave your stuff. The cabinets are quite safe but we are not responsible for valuables left in these . Are electronic lockers that open ONLY to give you the key at reception.
You can only leave your things in the consignment on checkout day, and you should claim them before 10:00 pm on the day that you leave for safety reasons. Whatever luggage exceeds the specified timeframe will be inspected by our staff and in the case that it cannot be opened, the police will be called and the luggage may be destroyed. In this case, Cat’s hostel will not be responsible for lost or damaged luggage. If luggage is not claimed but Cat’s hostel has deemed it safe, it will be stored but it will accrue a daily storage fee that you must pay before claiming your luggage.
