Booking Through our Partners

WeHostels offers users the ability to book travel with some of our third­party travel partners through the WeHostels Service offered on our mobile applications. If you use a booking feature that's powered by one of our travel partners, we collect your payment information and pass it on to the travel partner to process the transaction, consistent with our Privacy Policy. We don't complete the transaction or process your payment—the travel partner does. You understand and agree that if you encounter any problems with the transaction or with the reservation you book in that transaction, you must resolve your dispute with the travel partner, not with WeHostels, and your sole remedy, including any refund, lies with the travel partner, not with WeHostels.

Additional terms, provided by the travel partner, apply to your transaction or other use of the booking feature powered by that partner, and you acknowledge and agree to be bound by those additional terms. Please carefully read the applicable terms here:

You understand that the applicable partner's terms govern your booking transaction, and that in the event of any material conflict between those terms and this Agreement with respect to your booking transaction or other use of the booking feature, those terms shall prevail. WeHostels has no control over its third­party travel partners and is not responsible for their terms, their privacy, data security or other practices, their performance, or their content, advertising, or other materials they may provide to you, whether or not provided through the Service.

Every booking or other order accepted is subject to the terms, conditions, tariffs and regulations imposed by the rail, shipping, bus, car rental, car insurance, airline, or other companies, firms, or persons concerned. Travelers are responsible for ensuring that they have all necessary travel documents and visas.
