Check-ins outside the standard times shown above require special permission and advance arrangements. Please email » or call us in advance to ensure that your request can be accommodated!

To check out, simply lock your door with your room card and then slide the card (and laundry card, if applicable) under the door. A UWinnipeg Downtown Hostel staff member will retrieve these items after you leave. A $25 charge applies for each unreturned card.

Booking Changes and Cancellation Fees (for non-group bookings)

At the hostel we understand that a guest’s plans may change.  That is why we don’t charge a cancellation fee for individual reservations canceled a minimum of 72 hours in advance of the arrival date.  If a reservation is canceled less than 72 hours in advance of the arrival date, the total of one night’s stay plus taxes will be charged to the guest’s credit card.

Reservations shortened after the scheduled arrival date are subject to a fee equal to the total of one night’s stay plus taxes.

Note that refunds can take up to 4-6 weeks to process and must be issued by cheque, due to University refund processes.
