Our Mailing Services Policy
Acceptance and Forwarding of Mail: We accept and store mail drops for guests at no charge, and for non-guests for a fee. It is the responsibility of the sender to ensure packages get delivered to the hostel in time. We can forward mail to another location for a fee by request and at your own risk. Mail drops will be stored at the hostel for up to 21 days (exception may be made upon request) before being returned to sender when a return address is provided. Any boxes not picked up prior to our posted closing date at the end of the season, or boxes marked with a pickup date during a time the Hostel will be closed will not be accepted or will be returned to sender if a return address is provided (see website for posted seasonal closing dates). If any items are left behind after check-out, the hostel can return the items by mail upon request and at the expense of the guest. Although we handle all mail deliveries, storage, and forwarding with care, Hostel Around the Bend will not be liable for any damages or loss of packages except in cases of gross negligence or intent, and the guest assumes any and all risk.
